Speaking to journalists, Funke Akindele revealed a deep personal connection to the film. “It has a part of my late mum in it, and it represents the struggles faced by many single parents and mothers in society.

“The film also sheds some focus on rebellious children. When they start out being rebellious, their families tend to give up on them. However, it is important to look for something special in your child; help them nurture their talents, and they will become great with it.”

Akindele further explained the central character, Jedidah Judah, a woman with five sons, each from a different father and tribe.

“This alone is enough to raise eyebrows and judgments. But this story will resonate with everyone, regardless of their background. I wanted to portray our diverse realities and struggles, the African way.”

On her casting choices, she emphasized her commitment to realism and objectivity. “Sentimentality doesn’t play a role in my decisions,” she stated. “Talent is essential to work with me, and I admire disciplined actors. This movie was blessed with an exceptional cast like Nse Ikpe Etim, Timini Egbuson, Uzor Arukwe, and many more. I sought actors who could deliver what I envisioned, and I found the best.”
