Hakkunde is an intriguing story of a long-time unemployed graduate; Akande, faced with life’s pressures, he decides to relocate to Kaduna from Lagos when an opportunity presents itself.

His expectation is however cut short and Akande must make a decision to either learn to survive in a faraway land or return back to failure.

According to Asurf Oluseyi:

“I’m super excited about the news as this is the first award to the title, and connecting to juries out of Nigeria shows the power of story telling.

“The movie stemmed from my personal experiences and it is a universal entity that must be discussed and creating this movie is my own attempt to help solve this universal problem from my own understanding of it, and this award is a big motivation to do better next time.”

The movie features Frank Donga, Ali Nuhu, Maryam Booth, Ibrahim Daddy, Isa Bello Ja, Rahama Sadau and Hadiza Soja.
