Actress Faithia Balogun has revealed that she almost turned down a role in the highly acclaimed movie “Jagun Jagun.”
The renowned Yoruba actress said it was her management’s persistent encouragement that ultimately convinced her to take on the role, a decision she’s now immensely grateful for.
In a heartfelt message, Faithia expressed her gratitude to fellow actor Femi Adebayo for granting her the chance to shine once again on the big screen.
The actress noted that upon first reading the script, she couldn’t have anticipated the remarkable journey that awaited her.
She commended Adebayo’s visionary approach to filmmaking, praising the depth and complexity of the project that became evident as it unfolded on screen.
“Jagun Jagun,” far from being just another film, is hailed by Faithia as a masterpiece woven with emotions, dedication, and unparalleled artistry.

She emphasized the togetherness that was built during the production and how it left an indelible mark on her heart.
