In the words of Isioma Osaje, who is making her directorial debut with ‘Japa!’, “I want to make films that feel true to the Nigerian experience, and nothing feels truer right now than Japa!” Our film is a fun and funny take on the ‘informal Nigerian dream’, she says. 

“Japa!! explores the Nigerian spirit, our desire for more, our ability to adapt to any situation, and the innate pride every Nigerian feels when they overcome an obstacle—honestly, making Japa! was such a gift because we all felt connected to this story and the characters. I’m excited about sharing Japa! with Nigerians and the rest of the world because it will surprise and delight audiences in the most amazing ways.” Osaje added. 

Inkblot co-founder Zulumoke Oyibo had this to say about collaborating with Isioma Osaje on the project: “At Inkblot, we have worked together with Isioma over many years and projects, and we were very pleased that we had the opportunity to collaborate with her on her directorial debut. She has seamlessly transitioned to directing and has shown a strong vision, bringing a depth to the film that speaks volumes. We are very excited about Japa! and can’t wait for everyone to see it.”

As we await the official release on Amazon Prime Video on the 8th of March, “Japa!” promises to be a groundbreaking addition to the prolific repertoire of Inkblot Productions, reinforcing its commitment to pushing the boundaries of storytelling and cinematic excellence globally.
