Reception[edit]

Ikogosi was panned by critics. Ada of Nollywood Reinvented gives the film 2 out of 5 stars, praising the set design, music and costumes, but criticizes the story and screenplay, the actors' performances, and directing. She concludes: "Though there are enough stories about relationships and marriage that definitely need to be told, they have been done so many times. There's a need to make movies around such topics that add more dimension and tell the stories in different and unexpected ways. There were enough dimensions to the plot of Ikogosi to develop and the resolutions definitely deserved more set up. I would not advise committing time to watching this movie unless you are bored. Completely bored".[5] Adenike Adebayo heavily criticized the purpose of the film and rated it 1 out of 5 stars.[6]
