‘The Survival of Jelili’’ is currently being shot in various locations across southwest Nigeria and expected for a 2020 release in the cinema.
The film is being directed by top-notch directors, Desmond Elliot, Temitope Adebayo, and Okiki Afolayan.
Femi Adebayo made headlines with the release of the comic film, ‘Jelili’ in 2011. In 2012, he attempted to make ‘Jelili Reloaded’ but didn’t make much impact until 2019 when he began shooting the official sequel, ‘Survival of Jelili’.
The actor had in 2012 confessed to getting favours after the release of the comedy film. In an interview with the Leadership newspaper, Adebayo said the ‘Jelili’ character has opened so many doors for him and even earned him awards and several nominations in 2012.
