Rain of Hope

A few weeks ago, I saw a Yul Edochie movie again for the first time in forever (I believe the movie was "Circle of Trust"). Then I asked,"where has Yul been hiding?" And someone snidely replied, "in all the Asaba movies that yo...

Circle of Trust

Oya! Before we even start, if you feel the need to mention to me that the movie is EXACTLY like the 2005 nollywood movie, "Games Women Play" based solely on the synopsis or trailer (because say na only you watch dat feem), then...

My Rich Boyfriend

There's a quote by Kevin Durant used nowadays to describe everything, so allow me to borrow that quote to describe this situation. Whoever had the genius idea to take IK away from those stereotypical playboy/Hausa-man-kaftan-we...

Sincerity

I am sick and tired of watching of four parts of a movie , all an hour. Sick and tired. Surely the first mark of a sophisticated film is that it has only one part. No matter how bad a film, that the filmmakers have condensed it...
