Afolayan revealed that while the coronavirus pandemic may have affected production, he is excited that his team had concluded principal photography before the coronavirus influenced lockdown.

Thankfully, we were able to complete the shooting of the film. We have also started post-production before the entire covid-19 started and we already have a cut but because of the lockdown, things have slowed down.

Speaking further on the theme of the movie, the filmmaker said, "CITATION will create awareness on the different forms of violence against women and girls in the public and private sphere. It will educate the society on women's rights and the ways to enforce these rights for the achievement of equality and tranquility. The movie will encourage and embolden women to stand up against mistreatment and abuse by a patriarchal society. It has also been designed to propel women to aspire to become successful leaders and thereby provide counter examples to negative gender stereotypes." Boasting an ensemble of A-list actors of diverse nationalities, as is the character of the film company, one can also underscore CITATION as another launching pad for new actors and resurgence for underrated talents by Golden Effects Pictures. Cast of the movie include veteran Nigerian actress and director, Joke Silvia; Haitian-French actor and model, Jimmy Jean-Louis; delectable Nigerian actress, Ini Edo; UK-based Nigerian fashion and lifestyle blogger, Temi Otedola; notable Nigerian actor, Yomi Fash-Lanso; Ghanaian actor, Adjetey Anang; Nigerian actor and singer, Gabriel Afolayan; man of Ivorian theater, Bienvenu Neba; veteran broadcaster and actor, Sadiq Daba; upcoming Nollywood actress, Bukunmi Oluwashina; French-Ivorian actor and screen writer, Raymond Reboul; theatre educator, Toyin Bifarin; and veteran Nigerian film director and actor, Wole Olowomojuore, aka ‘Baba Gebu’. Afolayan said he will be surprising fans, as a top personality will soon be unveiled as part of the cast. Written by the company’s long-standing screen writer, Tunde Babalola, CITATION tells the story of Moremi Oluwa, a fun-loving 21-year-old student on campus in Nigeria. Incensed at being ill-treated by a trendy university don, Lucien N’Dyare, she drags him before the University Senate. The ensuing intrigues define Moremi’s world against that of the respected academic, in a male-dominated bastion. @bukunmioluwasina @iniedo @adjeteyanang @jtofashion @jimmyjeanlouis @gabbylucciii @kapmotionpictures @goldeneffectspictures #citationthemovie
