I Sold Some of My Properties to Produce ‘Jagun Jagun’ – Femi Adebayo 

Femi Adebayo revealed the financial lengths he had to go to for the production of Jagun Jagun.

The director discussed the financial sacrifices the Yoruba epic’s production required of him in a conversation with the ladies of Your View on TVC.

He claimed that the Netflix project, which is thought to have had the largest crew shot in Nigeria, was a risk he took on without taking out any kind of loan from a bank.

In his words, “I didn’t want to go to the bank because I didn’t know when I was going to sell it, so the interest will keep rolling if I go to the bank. So I was like Let me just sell some of my properties”.

However, the exact details of how much was invested into the production of Jagun Jagun and how much had been made from the streaming so far weren’t revealed. But Adebayo gave a little insight into how profitable the sacrifice of selling his properties became. He said, “I think I can buy back times three of what I had sold”.

Adebayo also revealed having the story idea for Jagun Jagun way before the King of Thieves saying, “King of Thieves was a test run for Jagun Jagun”. He further explained that the 2022 Yoruba epic was a means to test the audience’s acceptance of such cultural stories from him.

Jagun Jagun recorded a turnout of 2.1 million views within three days of its debut on Netflix and now viewers are eager to see what new height the filmmaker Adebayo will dare take on again.
