Our location for the next several days stands amid the vast compounds, high fences, and lush bougainvillea of the exclusive Abeokuta Government Reserved Area (GRA)–a stark contrast to the humble market stalls of our most recent set. This peaceful and affluent neighborhood is the setting for a series of shocking revelations in the film.
The morning shooting schedule focused on another stunt scene, which Ayomide Abatti (as Young Kashimawo) referenced as his favorite sequence in Ma’ami: “I loved the action! It made me feel real!”
Although we filmed five scenes today, the clock is ticking on the time that Funke Akindele has left with the production. At this evening’s production meeting, Kelani insisted that Akindele’s scenes must be finished by Thursday morning –in time her to catch a flight and for Wole Ojo (as Kashimawo) and Bukky Ogunnote (as Dolapo) to commence filming in Abeokuta.
