Saworoide depicts the setting of an old Yoruba norm in the town of Jogbo where a person can not be crowned king without a ritual that involves the playing of Saworoide (English: brass bell talking drum). It was listed as one of the 10 best-selling Yoruba movies. 

The septuagenarian last classic, Ayinla, released on 18 June 2021 explores the life of Ayinla Yusuf, popularly known as Ayinla Omowura, an Apala musician who was stabbed to death by his manager named Bayewu in a bar fight on May 6, 1980 at Abeokuta.

The world can only wait to see the wonder that is about to be unfolded by the father of modern African film in our estimation.
