    Twenty-four years after the first installment, Nollywood fans have been thrown into wild excitement after ace movie producer, Tunde Kelani announced he is working on part two of the iconic movie, Saworoide.

    He made this known on his Twitter page on Thursday.

    Kelani wrote, “When there is a cultural vacuum, moral and mental decay follows. SAWOROIDE 2 (New movie) COMING SOON!”

    Saworoide is a classic Nigerian film that was released in 1999. The movie depicts the setting of an old Yoruba norm in the town of Jogbo where a person can not be crowned king without a ritual which involves the playing of "Saworoide" (brass bell talking drum). 

    The small town called Jogbo, is ruled by a powerful and corrupt king. The film explores themes of power, corruption, and the struggle for justice in a society where the voices of the people are often silenced. It was listed as one of the 10 best selling Yoruba movies.

    It featured stars like,Kola Oyewo, Bukky Wright, Lere Paimo, Larinde Akinleye, Peter Fatomilola, Kunle Bamtefa, Adebayo Faleti, Kayode Olaiya and Doyin Hassan.

    Kelani, who is widely regarded as one of Nigeria's greatest filmmakers, has been active in the industry for over three decades, producing a wide range of films that explore the complexities of Nigerian society and culture. His work has earned him numerous awards and accolades, and he is considered a pioneer in the Nigerian film industry.

    With the announcement of 'Saworoide 2,' it seems that Kelani is once again pushing the boundaries of Nigerian cinema and exploring new avenues for storytelling and artistic expression. Fans of the original film will no doubt be eagerly awaiting further news about the project and the chance to revisit the world of Jogbo once again.
