Review

Gabriel Afolayan who plays the role of Adewale Esho, the son of Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD) and the temperamental screen diva, Sola Shobowale, named Akintade and Grace Esho in the movie. They had a comfortable middle class family based in Lagos.

Interestingly, their son, Adewale Esho, heard from the four-walls of a classroom about a huge gold statue in the city of Ilesha, which happened to be his country home. From his findings, it was part of his ancestral rights resources. He took time to research through his Grandfather and a friend overseas on the location of the statue. Grandpa did not divulge the information but his friend told him and the journey began to get this goldmine.

As a young man who just left school, he was able to leave home on the premise of going for his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Adamawa State but he got his way back to Ilesha.

After a series of activities, he landed in jail.  He changed his identity to Samuel Okon, but was lucky to be seen by someone who can identify him.

In fact, this act almost tore the family apart, his mother relocated to the family house in Ilesha just to ensure that he was fine. Eventually, the smart young man, became a force to reckon with in the prison.

Thereafter, he was able to recruit fellow prisoners for the great task of finding the legendary gold statue.
