Japa is a breath of fresh air. It is brilliant, funny, and entertaining, with a cast that makes you laugh in almost every scene.

Starring Jidekene Achufusi (A Tribe Called Judah), Isioma Osaje's comedy explores the power of good deeds and how lives can be turned around by helping others.

This is my first time seeing the time loop plot device used in a Nollywood movie and boy does it work!

Achufusi is Mezu, a man who finds himself literally reliving the same day over and over again on the day that he is scheduled to leave the country for greener pastures abroad.

Dazed and determined to solve the unending nightmare, he embarks on a quest for answers, enlisting the help of his friends along the way.

The story is well told, thanks to a brilliant script that effectively shows how a time loop in science fiction works. Achufusi is a compelling protagonist and Adesua Etomi-Wellington is a sight for sore eyes. 

Layi Wasabi, Blossom Chukwujekwu and the rest of the supporting cast who play Mezu's friends are compelling in their performances.

In the end, this is a film that I regard as one of the best of its genres and the comedy, which is spot on, adds the much-needed spice to a didactic tale.
