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. (more…)
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. (more…)
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. (more…)
In my review of The Friend Zone, I had talked briefly about my love for the low-budget movies shown on iROKOtv. Obsession, which premiered this past Friday on iROKOtv, follows a formula synonymous with movies shown on iROKOtv; low-budget production, great storyline and a fine mix of popular and unpopular talented actors.

A few weeks back, award-winning filmmaker Biodun Stephen gave us a glimpse of her upcoming movie Glimpse. The teaser released on her Instagram account on October 31 featured Bisola Aiyeola (1st runner up Big Brother Nigeria 2017) in a very emotional scene and yes, this movie is going to get you emotional.

The ELFIKE Film Collective have released the official trailer for The Wedding Party Part 2. A teaser was released some weeks back but now we have the total package.
The trailer features interesting scenes including the mistake proposal by Nonso (Enyinna Nwigwe) to Deardre (Daniella Down), the oyinbo bridesmaid, but who does that? There is also a MAMA G moment at the wedding. So, plenty to look forward to.
You can watch the trailer to the highly anticipated Wedding Party Part 2 below. (more…)
Comedian turned actor/filmmaker, Ayo Makun, is back again with another comedy – The Accidental Spy. This time around, we will see some action, in a comical way of course. Have you ever seen a pidgin-speaking terrorist? Wait till you meet Ay and Emma Oh My God’s characters. (more…)
Catch.er is one of the movies I look forward to seeing this October. After the acclaimed success of Waltbanger’s 2015 Gbomo Gbomo Express, he established a claim to Nigeria’s finest in the crime genre. So, many, including me, were pumped to see Catch.er.
I finally did, and I have mixed feeling about the movie. The idea was great; execution was nowhere near perfect. (more…)
