Knockout Review: WAPTV’s attempt at a Cinematic Universe is a Series of Silly, Hilarious Instagram Skits

Nigerian Instagram comedians make ridiculous skits that are quite funny and often colored with terrible grammar. Now imagine these comedians—Omo Ibadan, Brother Shaggi, Wole Arole, and Mc Lively—slapped together with characters from WAPTV popular shows—Super Story and Papa Ajasco. Then spice things up with some Nollywood veterans and sprinkle a few stand-up comedians here and there, and ask all of them to play out a series of silly Instagram skits. That is what WapTv’s attempt at a cinematic universe, Knockout, is all about.

With The Royal Hibiscus Hotel, we can finally say Mo Abudu has given us a delightful rom-com.

Glimpse by Biodun stephen on irokotv

Glimpse Review: a beautiful story lacking cinematic cosmetics

Sobi’s Mystic made me a fan of Biodun Stephen’s work, Picture Perfect took the fandom to a different level but Glimpse showed that Superman is sometimes Clark Kent.

Biodun’s ability to write a compelling, believable and enjoyable story is probably unrivaled in Nollywood right now. But there is more to a movie than its story, the acting, cinematography, directing and production all play key roles in making a movie more presentable and acceptable.Read More »Glimpse Review: a beautiful story lacking cinematic cosmetics
