A new Nollywood movie set in the Igbo apprenticeship system titled Áfàméfùnà: An Nwa Boy Story will make its debut in cinemas on December 1.
The movie delves into the rich world of the apprenticeship system and unveils the essence of Igbo entrepreneurship and the power of a community united.
The film dwells on how the Igbo apprenticeship system revitalised the community’s economy by allowing successful Igbo men to pass on their knowledge and blessings to apprentices, perpetuating the cycle of wealth creation.
According to the production studio, Come On Naija: “There is a significant aspect of Nigerian history that needs to be unpacked and this is one of the many reasons we decided to make this particular movie.”
