This MOVIE was totally UNBELIEVABLE, I mean that quite literally. It was a 100 percent UNBELIEVABLE….Not unbelievably good, just plain UNBELIEVABLE. See? If you read the word Unbelievable one more time eh…This is exactly what the movie gave us, an over flogged rhetoric mess. This movie should have been named PLOT TWIST, all the writers really wanted to do was twist the plot, over and over and over again till you remember that the entire movie is a lie. Niyi Akinmolayan and Inkblot productions must accept responsibility for this. Continue reading

Disclaimer: “I AM NOT A HATER, I AM ACTUALLY A BURNA BOY CRUSADER AND BELIEVE HE IS AMONG THE MUSICAL ELITE IN NIGERIA, AN ELITE LIST OF MINE THAT FEATURES DAREY, NNEKA, ASA, FELA, 2 FACE etc….”

I am just a disappointed fan, Burna Boy is a HUGE music talent and when I saw a NEW album- African Giant, I did a double back flip (In my mind though). This is the season of good music, not since D’banj has the musical gods smiled this hard on African music. Brown Skin Girl and the entire rave then this (Never mind whatever O.B.O is doing, yep, on that one I agree, I am a hater, promoted noise that one). Continue reading

Forbes list was first published in March 1987, if this compilation was done in the year of 1965 it would probably have featured Chief Festus Okotie Eboh

“….He was as rich if not richer than Dantata (1955’s wealthiest in West Africa) who owned 40% of the groundnut pyramids in Kanu and was wealthier than Ojukwu father and the Orizus.”

No reference to Dangotes, Otedolas or Elumelus, the guards have changed in recent years yet we must turn our gaze to Nigeria’s FIRST truly POWERFUL man. Continue reading

In a sane society this insane movie should attract the largest crowd at movie theatres. The story is so great but sadly as all great Nollywood classics go, Coming from Insanity went unnoticed and struggled to get viewership among “mediocre” STORIES

  • Aladdin (a sad cartoon remake; Hollywood is truly done, no more stories, they are only out to ruin our Disney childhood)
  • Anna (a silly reboot of LUCY/ATOMIC BLONDE/SPARROW, not since SALT have they got a female spy themed movie right, how much we miss Angelina Jolie)

“What’s the name?

“Anita, what do you want?”

Clearly this was a case of young-man-state-your-business

“How much would it cost to take you home with me?”

“I don’t go to people’s houses; you would have to lodge in a hotel.”

“Interesting, so how much?”

“Twenty Thousand.”

My jaw dropped; did she want me to price? Did she hike the price because my moon walker boots gave me the works-on-the-rig look? If all clients paid twenty, surely she shouldn’t be standing on the streets Continue reading

How do you feel when you break my face like a toy you once lost as a child?
How do you zoom into my body with your fist,
Heaving like you just won the only battle you fight everyday?
Your victory is to forget your father
So you wear him on my skin like someone you vowed to love but can’t stop hating.

Directed By: Kunle Afolayan

“It’s a Yoruba Movie oh” The warning I got from the lady handing me my movie ticket

“I know! It has subtitles right?” Like I was going to let anything stop me from seeing the highly anticipated Kunle Afolayan (Best director/producer; RE: The Best Thing @ NazRev) movie. The show times for the movie (11:10am and 7:30pm) told me all I needed to know, another thought out Nigerian movie sidelined for the likes of Godzilla and Dark Phoenix. The dream of having sold out auditoriums for “our good movies” not just the comedies remains laughable. I really don’t know where the problem lies, movies are failing at promotion & publicity or Hollywood infiltrates wouldn’t give us a chance. Perhaps movie release dates should be targeted very far away from Global blockbusters so that movie goers have no choice (Captive audience). The AGN should look into this; maybe an imposed Cinema Quota system would help. Continue reading

Director and Writer: Biodun Stephens

It is the season of Faith based movies, after the hugely successful GOD CALLING; Biodun Stephens delivers another Faith themed master class. The full package, an emotionally charged story that would move you to tears as God’s peace washes over you at the end.

The movie didn’t have a cute Jesus/angel to sell (Ademola Adedoyin in God calling) and despite its many flaws, it dragged itself all the way up to 7 on my 1-10 movie rating scale. Blossom Chukwujekwu (Lamide) didn’t quite put up a great performance, still can be overlooked, as we have learnt from LEVI, it takes more than an awesome performance from the lead actor to make a movie. I would start out with the good: Continue reading

The day Nigeria gave me the final F**K YOU…I have tried so hard against all odds to believe in Nigeria. I have maintained my stance as a patriot. A very extreme tough task considering I have the Obsessive Compulsive Disease, I love to plan and plan and plan and love to see everything in apple pie order, everything working as it should be. The planets revolving around the sun on a pre-set axis, I am a son of God, a child of perfection. I expect, believe and hope for perfection. Somehow (Maybe because of my ruthlessness in my former life as Lestat or so) I was born to Nigeria, the worst place for an individual who craves order. There is nothing but chaos, pure sublime divine chaos here. Continue reading
