Expressing excitement at the honour, Adebayo said, “The inspiration behind this movie is to show the creativity of the Yoruba culture to the entire world. Cultural folklore is gradually dying, yet it is full of beautiful stories.”

On the challenges faced while shooting the movie, the actor and filmmaker said, “There were tough challenges, especially in the area of location. We had to travel to a remote area which had no electricity supply. We also had to a river with a spiritual warning that we must not cross the river with groundnuts.”
