With the triumphant return of “Anikulapo” in its grandest form yet, titled “Rise of the Spectre,” veteran actor Taiwo Hassan, popularly known as Ogogo, has showered praise on the mastermind of the series, Kunle Afolayan.

Ogogo, while speaking exclusively to Per Second News at the Eko Hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos, during a Netflix-hosted event for “Anikulapo,” extolled Afolayan’s directorial prowess, labelling him a visionary whose approach to filmmaking is unparalleled.

“To say I was blown away by Afolayan’s attention to detail and spontaneity in directing would be an understatement; he truly raised the game high and demanded the best from everyone who was part of the project,” he said.

In the series, which is coming to Netflix, viewers will be treated to a thrilling narrative set against the backdrop of the Oyo Kingdom, where protagonist Saro embarks on a race against time to fulfil a seemingly impossible mission.

Reappraising their roles are Kunle Remi as Saro and Bimbo Ademoye as Rolake, supported by a stellar ensemble cast including industry luminaries like Sola Sobowale, Jide Kosoko, Lincoln Owo Ogunde, Gabriel Afolayan, and more.

Reflecting on his involvement in the project, Ogogo marvelled at the professionalism and camaraderie fostered by Afolayan on set.

He emphasized the rarity of such collaborative synergy, asserting that “Anikulapo: Rise of the Spectre” stands as a testament to Afolayan’s directorial genius and the collective talent of the cast and crew.

“Being a part of this project has been a privilege,” Ogogo remarked, urging fellow actors to aspire to the standards set by Afolayan and his team.

“This is not just a series; it’s a masterpiece that transcends boundaries and captivates audiences with its brilliance,” he concluded, inviting viewers to experience the magic of “Anikulapo: Rise of the Spectre.”
