Kosiso (Voice of the Poor)

There’s just something about these family movies. They have a way of keeping you seated for the length of the movie – when done right – even though you knew at the start of the movie exactly how it was going t...

Brothers’ War

Absolute Power

‘Absolute Power’ is yet another royal art academy movie from a debutante director (or at least I think this is his/her first work). The movie addresses a prevalent issue in the Nigerian tertiary education system fro...
