All four movies executive produced by Mo Abudu are in the top ten highest grossing Nigerian movies of all time. She is business savvy like that. While she is the king (or Queen) of Nollywood Box Office, movies produced by her company, EbonyLife Films, have not been critically acclaimed. To be honest, they have not been great films. With The Royal Hibiscus Hotel, we can finally say Mo Abudu has given us a delightful rom-com.
Banji Lenz Productions presents something refreshing and bold, a Sci-Fi action movie – Sector Zero. For an industry like ours that is heavily focused on comedies and romantic movies, the Sci-Fi genre is highly welcome.
It is a new year we are here to talk about the Nollywood movies of 2018 we cannot wait to see. 2017 was an interesting year for the Nigerian Film Industry. There were breakout stars, social media comedians getting lead roles – Frank Donga in Hakkunde – and minor roles – Wofai Fada in Catch.Er and The Wedding Party.
The Wedding Party 2 was supposed to have exciting foreplay, long-lasting main event, and a beautiful climax. Instead, it had rushed foreplay, a not-so-main event, and no climax. Let me explain.
If there is anything to pick off the King Tonto trailer is that Linda Ikeji is not playing around. She really wants the TV market to herself in 2018 and she will get it.
2017 has been a crazy year, with different trends, protests, agitations, political unrest across the world, but one thing that really stood out was the discussion on abuse on women – physically, sexually and domestically – and Omoye, an Uche Chukwu’s film, focuses on domestic violence.
Linda Ikeji hopes to disrupt the Nigerian TV space in 2018 with a reality TV show – Oyinbo Wives of Lagos – unlike anything we have seen in Naija. I think this one is perfect for the lovers of the Kardashian series and Telemundo.
A few hours ago, Omoni Oboli released the Wives on Strike: The Revolution trailer on YouTube and it was everything I hoped for. If you thought the prequel was funny, you are going to laugh your heart out on December 29 when The Revolution starts showing in cinemas nationwide.
Movies that make you jiggle while tackling real social issues loudly are always enjoyable, and that is why we are looking forward to Omoni Oboli’s Wives on Strike: The Revolution.
