Actor and filmmaker Femi Adebayo has stated that he sold some of his property to fund the trending movie Jagun Jagun and does not regret his decision.

The 44-year-old revealed this on Wednesday during an interview following a visit by City People publisher Seye Kehinde.

“It was extremely challenging on Jagun Jagun set and at a point, I was out of finance. I believed so much this project would work so I went out, sold my properties and I believed it will sell and it actually did so I didn’t regret selling my property to finish Jagun Jagun,” Femi said.

The movie tells the story of ancient warriors, kings and a cruel warlord who feels threatened by a determined young warrior seeking only power and the love of a strong woman.
