CGiii Comment

A three-part anthology film exploring modern day juju (magical) stories rooted in Nigerian folklore and urban legend, written and directed by the new Nigerian new wave cinema collective known as Surreal16. Juju Stories tackles juju in contemporary Lagos through three stories.

In Love Potion, by Michael Omonua, an unmarried woman agrees to use juju to find herself an ideal mate.


In Yam, by Abba T. Makama, consequences arise when a street urchin picks up seemingly random money from the roadside.

In Suffer the Witch, by C. J. **Fiery** Obasi, love and friendship turns into obsession, when a young college woman attracts her crush's interest.
