Lost Highway

I think Tchidi was able to play off the film's absolute lack of actual actors by putting three amazing acts in the lead. In my opinion, Rita Dominic's acting prowess compensated for the millions lacking in that of all the extra...

Hamza

'Hamza' was the first Hausa movie I ever saw (and last) and I'm not certain it really counts as an Hausa/Kannywood movie because most of the dialogue was in English, but for argument sake, let's call it an Hausa movie.

The Advocate

Down there with Nollywood USA movies, are Nigerian Christian movies for me. To state it simply, I don't like Nigerian Christian movies and I'll tell you why.
