Ayo Makun, a Nigerian comedian and film producer, is currently filming a new film called ‘Almajiri' in Kaduna State.

The Almajiri system is prevalent in northern Nigeria, and the film, directed by Toka McBaror, is based on true events.

The movie, according to the comedian, is intended to tell a very common story of children who are subjected to the high level of poverty experienced by most families in that region.

‘‘These children often wander the streets begging for food, clothes, and other necessities thus making them vulnerable to chronic ill-health, sexual and physical abuse, human trafficking, slavery, drugs etc. This is something unusual and different coming from the AY brand.”

The film stars Alexx Ekubo, Annie Idibia, Kanayo O. Kanayo, Segun Arinze, Ali Nuhu, Rahama Sadau, Sani Danja, Broda Shaggi, and AY who doubles as executive producer.
