Speaking on his inspiration for the movie, Sasore stated: “As a filmmaker, I considered how the world is looking to our continent for original stories, and how the Bible is filled with the most original stories that we each experience in our own way every day. It led me to think of how religion could adapt to time and geography, and this is what birthed God Calling.”
Executive producers include Ibukun Awosika, Derin Adeyokunnu, Yomi Jemibewon and Patricia Jemibewon among a host of others.
