“BlackBerry Babes” – What Does This Movie Say About Us?

BellaNaija.com

Published

 on


For the past few weeks, a movie poster for a Nollywood movie titled “BlackBerry Babes” has been making the rounds on social networking sites and Nollywood fan sites all around the web. The initial fascination was based on the assumption that “Nigerians have become so addicted to BlackBerry devices that we just had to make a movie about it”. However, as clips of the movie began to emerge online, the questions got a little bit deeper. The story follows a very common theme that we have seen in a thousand and one Nollywood movies – wayward young women trying to live above their means. In this case, the focus is BlackBerry smartphones. The movie “premiered” via YouTube last night as has received over 27,000 views. It seems as though having a “BB” has become a “standard” that Nigerians expect people not fall below. Case in point, several young ladies and gents have mentioned that rather than asking for your number, intending suitors ask for their BB Pin and if they don’t have one, they get a blank look and then “see you around”. A young entrepreneur with a budding business also noted that prospective clients ask for his BB pin and since he doesn’t have one, he has lost significant business because of that. Anyway, back to the movie.

The official movie synopsis

From the Producer behind the Nollywood Hits – “Beyonce and Rihanna“, “White Hunters“, “Girls Cot” and “Life Partners“. Simony Pictures Introduces BLACKBERRY BABES (BBB) Damisa (Oge Okoye) and her friends (Tonto Dikeh, Mary Remmy, Annie Macaulay) are the Blackberry Babes, their economic, social and dating lives are organised and pay homage to a connected mobile world. Witness the lengths that girls will go for the love of material wealth…

The question is, what does this say about our movie industry and most importantly, what does it say about our society?

Clips from the movie – BlackBerry Babes




BN has received confirmation that NollywoodLove is the legitimate online distributor for the movie, therefore, here is the full-length movie link. Thanks.

    Simple: 9ja too craze 4 fashion….we ova do things too much..we take it to extreme asin we press P (just like I am presently pressing one)….D craze 4 BB didn’t just start…it is just naw watered down, naw everyone has one or must av one…..mschewww.
    U kno dere nothing wrong wit BB, bt 9ja pple don make me HATE d brand…..ask majority of dem why dem use am…u go go fear fear, they av no idea except to carry 4 hand, bbm (almighty according to my friends) and use 4 shakara……..There are other tush brands, nw waiting for the trend to change cos it wuld, i bet ya…..
    (by d way, I dont use a useless fone, cos I know some pple would jump to conclusion: and say that I am hating cos I cant buy a BB, well to you such, fyi I use an HTC HD2..proud of it..purposely bought something dat ain’t BB. I dont use BB and /i would neva use it (like I said earlier, /i am pressing P oh, asper a 9ja naw)….With that said, it is just sad wat pple, in particular girls/women/ladies do to get BB

      I SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AGREE WITH YOU!! the only reason why i’d have a bb is if that’s d only phone option in store. i hate that phone with passion!!!

      I think ur comment is totally irrelevant. Wat do girls,women do 4 BB? This movie is jst a reflection of the mediocrity & ineptitude in our movie industry and people’s acceptance of such. I own a BB & I bought it with my own salary, didnt need to make a fool of myself like this movie is portraying ladies to be shallow and stupid.

    As for the movie industry, I have been advocating that there should be a “nigerian film naming association” Nollywood titles are ridiculous, 4 instance I am sure the part 3 and 4 of the movie would be “the return of the blackberry babes” like seriously…And soon there would be movies on brazillian hair, indian remy, malaysian hair etc…mchew (rant ova)

    I love my blackberry but I’m not that obsessed with it. I felt that the movie was a mock up on those who do actually behave like that. It highlights the absurdity that exists in society.

    • MeeT

      March 18, 2011 at 1:52 pm

      That about sums up the whole movie. Before you criticize the movie, what about the society that gave them the material to work with.

    • aku

      March 18, 2011 at 8:49 pm

      there we go blaming the society that gave them the material to work with AKA the White man! r we, black people, africans, nigerians so DUMB that we give the WHITE man more power. We as africans are smarter than we credit ourselves. They didnt point a gun and force Nigerian women to buy BB phones. I’m yet to figure out why the vivian character has every version of the BB… i dont own a blackberry but please enlighten me… the phones pretty much serve the same purpose abi?

    • Ready

      March 19, 2011 at 5:56 am

      Wetin dem dey talk, wetin you dey yarn? Who mentioned the white man? Society is society…Nigerians, our people, whatever you wanna call them gave the movie maker material to work with. I just wanted to correct that. If from what that chick wrote, your logical conclusion was that she was referring to the white man, you’re the one who needs to calm down, and check your reasoning process.

    i watched this film yesterday on you tube.it ‘s like any other hustling films on our dear nollywwood.come to think of it those gals ae supposed students.their lifestyle is i must belong.what do they do for a living and living so large.men picking up the bills.one persons flaunting all the different ranges of blackberry.what happened to trading in ur old phones.and oge okoye asking the guy to use her phone to payonline in the supermarket.na so una they pay for naija.shop instore and payonline.gosh.that was so so so lame.

    • TRINAH

      March 18, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    I’ll be back to comment after I finish the movie.. Hoping, I won’t regret my decision to watch.

    But if all the craze about BBM pin and everything BB in naija is anything to go by, I’m sure the movie will be nothing but a mockery of BB craze.

    March 18, 2011 at 9:54 am

    am laughing so hard my ribs hurt , black berry babes haba …. we have so many talents why do we riddicle the movie industry ….. the black berry phone is not a new thing why make so much fuss about it … am actually ashamed that adults in their right thinking sense would make themselves a laughing stock especially oge okoye , you would think by now she would be mature enough to play roles that befit her status … she should take a cue from genevieve …. enuf said ….. the movie just goes to show that nollywood is a very big joke

    • lolz

    March 18, 2011 at 9:58 am

    this is just a stupid movie,i found it rather annoying..
    to answer your questions,with movies like this i feel some people in the industry just want to pull it back.you see a movie like this and then you watch tango with me, u wont believe the same industry produced it.whether its telling the story of wats happening in naija now or not this is just celebrating mediocrity in terms of everything.see the name of the movie sef.oge should know that she is married eh..tonto,well wat can i say when u continue to act movies like this are u ever going to reach the status Genny,omotola, Stella Damascus et al have created for themselves.if u arent acting some soft porn it will be something in that line.Muna obviously is broke so he has to take any role,from bin gay to anything else..
    as for wat it says about our society,nigerians over do their own things and well like d movie,these are the kind of things gals do to get a BB not even a HTC desrie HD..smh the twitter fight sometime ago this was wat d gals were saying now,how dis one slept with who for her bold 1, bla bla bla
    a total breakdown of values all for money and stupid material things.
    by the way when they want to act movies like this they know the kind of people to meet with the script..mstchew..and i find having 4 blackberrys very unrealistic,who does that pls?

    Asking what blackberry babes says about us is not necessary. That implies that Nollywood is an accurate depiction of life of Nigerians in Nigeria. We all know it’s not. If it were, it would imply that many daughters willingly sleep with their father’s like in Dirty Secret, or most Mother in Laws are as evil as Patience Ozokwor’s characterization of them. This movie is an exaggeration of the behavior of a small segment of the population that would do anything for a material possession. Mind you most people in Nigeria do not even own a phone worth over N10K, so this movie is definitely not saying anything about a significant percentage of the population.

    • prism of an immigrant

      March 18, 2011 at 2:08 pm

      I think Nollywood movies do tell our true life stories, and that’s one reason why they’re loved by most Africans. They deliver unadulterated truth, occasionally with a little exaggeration.

    • THE AMAKA

      March 18, 2011 at 2:36 pm

      many are seriously exaggerated though, seriously.

    • Adaeze

      March 19, 2011 at 8:30 pm

      Yea you are right. I enjoyed the movie though, I saw it more as comedy. But honestly speaking, I am sure there are groups of girls like that in various Universities in Nigeria that would go to that extent to get a BB. So in as much as the movie might not be all that, I think it shows what’s actually happening. 🙂

    • CC

      March 20, 2011 at 5:24 pm

      So which Nollywood movie has told your story? None have told mine, I don’t see myself in any of the movies. They depict a small aspect of some people’s lives, but I doubt if the movies shows a diverse enough representation of african lives.

      March 24, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    well, i know some girls who have slept with just to get a bb but i spent a whole months salary to get mine so i cant judge them cus that was equally extreem.
    i like the business i get and do through my bb and the contact i have made and all the very convienent apps but now all smart phones are versatile and the phone companies now have internet services for them so i see myself switching back to NOKIA soon… lol

      My dear..just a little caring comment & pls don’t take it as hate or harsh criticism. Pls don’t spend a month’s salary to purchase a phone. Hope you’ll appreciate this advice, if not now, then a little later. Cheers.

    This movie was just a waste of precious time.It was tooooo fake! haba! I think the producers just did a wishy washy job. Yes, people are crazy about blackberry phones but not in the manner portrayed in that movie. The acting by the girls was just too FAKE! Too fake!

    Its unfortunate that people do not want to put thought into anything. Even things as little as titling their movies, unfortunately people watch these crappy movies that add little or no value to you. No wonder my brother says that these Naija home videos kill your brain cells.

  23. Tiki

    March 18, 2011 at 11:02 am

    C’mon guys, support your industry! This movie is obviously supposed to be a comedy, so I like that it made me laugh…If I wanted a serious, educational movie with a morale, I wouldn’t watch one entitled ‘BlackBerry Babes’ now! and y’all take it easy on Oge…same way Chiegwe blossoms in village settings, she blossoms in Uni settings…abi all actresses must dey the same?

    • ihy

      March 18, 2011 at 11:28 am

      well said tiki, people are taking this thing way too serious than it was meant to be. It is a comedy, if it made you laugh then the purpose was achieved. It would be unwise of anyone to expect an oscar-worthy nollywood movie titled “blackberry babes”. You all talk as though hollywood hasn’t had it’s own share of crappy movies.
      All i can say is that someone did his job well for this movie to have gained so much publicity.

    • Toska

      March 19, 2011 at 9:37 am

      Tiki God bless you..All these people talking rubbish about another persons work..This suppose to be a comedy and i really enjoy my time watching it..All the movies can never be same.Even in Hollywood,you will still see low budget movies..People can never be appreciative for once,but rather they will criticizing others who is contributing in one way or the other to make this country a better place.All those people who came here to criticize who suppose to be like Jenny and Omotala,what have you contributed to the image of this country?At least nollywood has contributed a lot and has made outsiders to know few good things about Nigeria..We should at least, appreciate these actors,because they are the people who made this industry to be where it is today..

    annie maculay– wants to runaway from her status as tuface babymama and will do anytime to rid of it again please do forgive her

    tonto Dike– has no excuse this is definately her kind of work period!
    but wait o the gud thing abt this film is the publicity it has garnered! gud or bad publicity all na publicity! my friend doesnt watch naija movies i ve been getting her to watch the likes of keeping faith and ije but she took her time to watch this…lmao silverbird shud premier this movie the ticket sale will be insane! lmao

    • Titi

      March 18, 2011 at 8:09 pm

      True the movie is getting publicity however most people are watching it online for free, so the creators of this movie are not making much profit from it.

    • THE AMAKA

      March 19, 2011 at 3:36 pm

      the youtube channel NollywoodLove is the only legit Nigerian movie channel on youtube. have you noticed how all the other channels were shut down, because of copyright issues? NollywoodLove makes money from people watching the movies, and some of it does go to the producers. so, YES, they do make money from them.

  27. Ginika

    March 18, 2011 at 11:35 am

    Yeah we should support the industry sha, I mean at the end of the day it is only depicting what is happening in the country

      March 18, 2011 at 7:30 pm

      So true! these days no one would ask you for your number, they would ask you for your pin. People are less likey to communicate with you as they would if you had a blackberry. lol. I just find it crazy. So my point is we as Nigerians inspired this movie (althought it was exaggerated). So I really have no judgement towards it, I just take it as entertainment.

    • Ready

      March 19, 2011 at 6:03 am

      When people ask for my pin, I just go EFCC419. I don’t need a blackberry; it’s aimed at business people who have really busy schedules. I don’t so although temptation was strong, I refuse to fall for the trend. When it’s time to upgrade, I’ll just get the coolest cheapest phone. If you don’t talk to me ’cause I don’t have a BB, you shall not be missed.

    March 18, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    I think this movie was a simply a pardy of society and popculture.I doubt it was to be taken seriously and they expected to win oscars.It was a parody of society and pop-culture,lighthearted,and though it made me shake my head alot,it made me laugh….

    Everyone bashing this movie please understand this is meant to be a comedy. You are not suppose to gain any sort of knowledge from watching the movie. I mean the name of the movie is Black Berry Babes wat did u expect. I don’t think the producers wanted people to laugh. Comedy is an exaggeration of the truth. This movie clearly exaggerates this idea of having a blackberry and wat girls will do to get one. SO PEOPLE CALM DOWN and LAUGH.
    PS what was up with Tonto and the flexi rod i did not know u were suppose to wear them all day every day…..lol

    the movie was kinda funny but there was some truth in it….a bit exaggerated, but the whole blackberry thing is getting crazy nowadays.
    i heard in Nigeria, some people don’t even ask for your phone number anymore, just your BB pin.

    btw….as if men don craze for BBs too? anyway, I’ve only watched part one of the four parts (which i will believe there are four parts just as EVERY Nollywood movie has nowadays). i got sleepy….but something about the movie was off.
    but when you see red carpets on BN….half of the time the guests are posing with their bags and BBs in sight. its part of the “look/package” i guess. but there are so many other high tech phones that are better than the BB. iPhone….and some other really nice phones on AT&T and Verizon (too bad i dont know the names). but i’ll stick with my touch screen-slider for now. haha

And yes, there are way cooler phones than what RIM produces, I don’t know why Naijas fell hard for Blackberries. HTC has really cool stuff, and the Japanese brands are not so popular, but they have the best Android phones.

    Ok Everyone has been saying that Nollywood sucks, the writers are crap and they ran out of ideas. I beg to differ. Nigerian movies were never that good. They were always predictable. I can tell you what will happen by looking at the cover. So people, please stop acting like that the production of terrible Nigerian movies just started recently. They always promote things that many people do not want to watch. Back then they promoted witchcraft. As a teenager you could not pay million dollars to watch a naija movie cause i was deadly afraid of them. We also need to stop comparing Nigerian movies to American movies. They are not and will never be the same thing. You cannot expect a Nigerian writer to write a movie about life abroad. Ummm that would be quite ridiculous. A writer writes from what they see happening around them. The only reason I watch Nigerian movies is to laugh. I mean come on is it from the horrendous looking weaves, to the backwards fashion, or is it their British/American/Chinese accent they try to fake. Out of the thousands of movies that are produced in Nigeria yearly maybe and i repeat MAYBE 50 of them are good movies. Why would they waste time producing a good film knowing nobody is going to buy it. We expect trashy movies so they produce trashy movie. Everyone complains but they are still watching them. The ONLY PROBLEM I have with Nigerian movies is their need to have unnecessary SEX scenes in their Movie. The scenes don’t do anything to enhance the plot. Please i know sex sells but even in American movies there is a reason why they have sex scenes.

    When money miss road and a village champion illiterate gets money and wants to get behind a camera and produce/direct (cos its the in thing now) – this is what happens. We the audience get bombarded with such bafoonery of foolishnes, not worth a dime. As long as i blog i will keep alerting ppl to save their money and not buy such crap – DONT BUY or INVEST MONEY TO BUY such nonsensical movies. To each his own – i guess those who can truly relate to these girls will buy it nonetheless. Support those producing and directing movies worth global film festivals – not this crap. Yes its a comedy but it becomes tiring when majority of the QUANTITY OF MOVIES being put out every month is same ole nonsense. I use to blame to actors for taking any damn script that falls on their lap – however i now dont overlook the culprits (the producers & directors). I mean the titles of the movies alone is something else. I understand you gotta each ladies, but please dont dare open your mouth in an interview to utter the words “my long term goal is to go to Hollywood” when you are saying yes to such nonsense scripts. Its laughable at best. Seems to me most in this industry dont take the art of acting seriously – They just want to be seen. And this is why we salute the few who do – like Genevieve, Rita, Stella, Omotola and a few others. May you few continue to uplift the name of african movie industry – we do notice your great work.

    ps: If i want comedy i watch great nice ones by Osuofia or Chinny Ahaneku “Alice My First Lady” – nice movies you can watch with your non african friends and they can smoothly understand the script and laugh throughout the movie and enjoy it. There is comedy and bafoonery – two different things. Lets not get it twisted.

      you are totally right. Alice My First Lady still remains one of my favorite comedy movies to date. haha, its hilarious. and as for the people in Nigeria, they don’t have to waste their money watching Nollywood movies as they are online and on African Magic. there are even some cable networks here in the states that have about one or two channels dedicated to Nigerian movies. i know Comcast and Dish Network have it.
      so there is really no need to buy Nollywood movies in this day and age. I will only but if its really good and i wanna support.

The title of the movie obviously lets you know that you shouldnt take it too serious.It is a comedy but it also sheds light on what some girls are willing to do ‘to feel among’.

    I wonder what anyone seriously expected to see if not sheer absurdity and infantile carrying-ons in a movie with the glorious title of BLACBERRY BABES… from the producers of another out-of-this-world movie called RIHANNA and BEYONCE. I predict that soon you will get GADAFFI & MUBARAK and TSUNAMI in JAPAN from them too. And there won’t be a shortage of buyers. Naija don sink lower than mediocre tey tey. As to those who have tried to excuse the horrendous BBB rubbish by saying it’s supposed to be for laffs, well they apparently haven’t seen a comedy before.I’d sooner watch Osuofia, Sam-Loco or Mr Ibu and get real undiluted natural comedy than indulge in the agony of watching some hissing-inducing poseurs like the girls in the movie.

When I heard some people had made movies called Rihanna, Beyonce…I was thinking “Maybe my people will surprise me and let that movie flop.” But nooo…not my beloved people, they flocked to the stores and made it a hit. It’s why some people can release noise and have the nerve to call it “music” without being ashamed or being corrected by their family and friends. Mediocrity galore! And then when some of us call ’em out, they refer to as haters. Abeg….

      March 20, 2011 at 2:30 am

      I’m sure the movie became a hit because well-known omotola & jim iyke were in the movie and popular artists like rihanna and beyonce were used in the title, so it probably attracted people to buy it. but even on youtube sef, the movie has gotten soooo many views. i remember before the other channel got shut down, there must have at least been at least a million views from all the combined clips, and even the one that has recently been uploaded has 100s of thousands of views already. na wa! i think many non-Nigerians are clicking on it and thinking it has something to do with the actual rihanna and beyonce. lol maybe thats why it has been an online hit, IMO.

    not surprised at all.
    some producers and actress in naija are not smart when it cometo movies.
    BB might be popular but the percentage using in naija is definately not more than 10% of people using phone(phone mostly use dis day is china phone ) so dis film did not give acc of naija situation and am sure not all the 10% get their phone thru dis means so what is the producer thinking.
    looking back to when GSM 1st come to naija,alot of crappy movies was produced with title around GSM.
    Anyway what did u expect from producer with movies with title like rihanna and beyounce….and actors dt want to b seen in all movies by all means.

    What such movies focusing on blackberries saids about some of our african societies is our young ladies have become more materialistic than they have ever been in history – the #1 they seek than anything else is “Materials” (she can run miles on her coochie with all the alhajis in abuja & lagos and get all the money and not have the sense to start a smart business to give the coochie a rest, but rather to update her horse hair and her phone at any given chance). They think having fake horse brazilian hair plus a blackberry is what makes you legit to be called a somebody – everyone is a celebrity in their own head. They watch BET and American shows and want to emulate everything which is done out west cos they think its cute, obviously they get notice and they get praised so it continues. The chinese production team are very busy seeing this strong demand. Lol lol lol

    Hollywood releases it’s share of messes especially between January and February but even their worst films are NOT as bad as this junk!

  51. THE AMAKA

    March 18, 2011 at 3:40 pm

    as for the actors that starred in this…Tonto Dike….im SOOOO not surprised. she does ANY film that is offfered to her, and she doesn’t care how it makes her look (her reputation) or how she is giving Nollywood a bad look.
    Annie Macaulay…..2face first baby mama….she has been everywhere lately, doing all sorts of so/so roles in movies. i guess she is trying to make a name for herself instead of the tag as 2face’s baby mama. her acting isn’t that bad, and she is pretty, i just wished she would stay clear of scripts like this, because they won’t get you far.
    Oge Okoye….well, she’s played this kind of role times without number in the past, and i guess thats just what she’s good at. but seriously? for how long can you continue doing the same script? i was cheering for her when i saw her in the movie “Fulani” because she was finally doing something different. the same old thing….but i guess she can’t take challenging roles like genny or stella, maybe its out of her league.
    as for Mary Remmy…i’ve been seeing her here and there for at least 6 years now. she is always playing a side character, or one without much significance. she was in the movie “War Game” with Ini and Oge (or was it Rita???) and another movie playing a pauper. i guess she is just trying to have her big break or looking for work.
    as for Muna? whoever said he is just broke and looking for any kind of job is telling the truth! i co-sign with that one. even going all the way to act in gay roles?
    i would have expected this movie to have been done by “no-names” in the industry but NOT actors at this level. aren’t they supposed to be beyond that?

    whether or not it depicts real-life Nigeria, the truth is that it is purely for laughs. Just like many other movies work. Oscar-worthy movie? Many if not most movies made in other parts of the world are neither Oscar-worthy so whats the big deal. Watch it for the laughs and if you’re looking for an educational piece, watch a documentary or better still, make your own movie. Ever heard of “laughter is a good medicine”? Blackberry babes though silly will help you fight illness … havent you heard of the latest trend in the US – LAUGHING SPA/ THERAPY or something that sounds like it.

They have to represent cos they are HOLLYWOOD celebrities in NOLLYWOOD and they cannot be seen without one, its a taboo, There fore any script goes – even soft porn movies.

    Even our public office holders in Nigeria have caught the bug. Trust them to take it to another level that even Research In Motion had not even envisaged. I was watching a program on national TV some weeks back, and it was interview between a government official and a talk show host/ social critic. The host asked the government official how he keeps in touch with his local and state constituency in the South South, despite always travelling abroad on ‘official trips”, living and operating from Abuja and not going to his state due to the political upheavals and rising crime rate. He answered with a straight face ” How I keep in touch with my constituency? Very simple. Two words. Blackberry.”

    I thought blackberry was one word.

    The BB is also guilty of being at the centre of a few incidents too.

    About two years ago, I used to work for this company where all the senior managers were given BBs for official tasks. There was this particular manager, Mr.Babatunde, married, about 38, who was very loud. He fancied one of our co-workers, a svelte, pretty girl called Nora whose desk was in the open plan layout just in front of his. Nora was not interested in him in the least, so Mr. B was fond of doing stuff to try to get her attention. He would come out of his office, acting like he was on a very important call to a foreign client with his voice loud saying stuff like “Yes Mr. Smithers. You can email me anytime on my Blackberry” or boasting like ” Please forward my itinerary to my Blackberry. I fly out to London, first thing next week.”

    It was hopeless because Nora refused to give him the time of day or go out with him.

    On one particular day, he was bragging away loudly to someone on his BB as he was coming out of his office, and looked towards Nora to see if she was listening to his conversation. He did not look at the ground in front of him, and tripped over a stack of cable wires which connected the office server to all the PCs. Some of the wires cut, and disrupted the whole company’s internet connectivity for the whole day until an engineer came over to sort it out. No real work could be done in the office for almost 24 hours. Client deadlines couldn’t be met that day and everything regarding office work ground to a halt. Not good.

    One of the directors called him into the office and gave him a reprimand and an official query. By the time he came out, he looked really humiliated. I guess, for him, it was a huge learning, err, Curve.

    We are all guilty of going to public or private functions – parties, weddings, get togethers, restaurant openings, barbeques, and bury their heads in their phones and so do not interact socially. Balance is crucial.

    The BB has even created a special industry – the BB pouch or rubber-case making industry. Some people have 3 or 4 different BB covers or pouches to protect their dear BB, but no deodorant or anti-pespirant for protection from sweat. Charity starts at phone, sorry, home.

    A few people simply detest the phone’s popularity and believe that it to be a symbol of the excess, materialism and vanity that is plaguing middle Nigeria at the moment. Dude, it is just a phone. Blame it on the individual and not the product. Don’t shoot the err, blackberry, messenger

    Nollywood will get respect when they can be more orignial. It’s like they have the worse titles ever, I just don’t understand how you can call that talent. I will say coming with better story lines, then we can work with the mediocre acting. I just wish they can start producing quality rather than quantity.

    Hollywood produces crap too but at least they make us believe what they are try to sell to the media. So, my point is Nollywood needs to work on their production, acting lessons and creativity.

But when a Nigerian dude comes on here writing a whole bunch of B.S. about how Nigerian girls are the ugliest and have the biggest egos, well I have to advise you to go hug a nuclear reactor in Japan.
    Talking ish about how the most beautiful women are in America and they have the most humble personalities…pele o bobo America. You must be a recent immigrant who’s lived in probably small cities. Yes, there are gorgeous women in the States, but you say it like majority of them are goddesses. The average American woman wears a size 14 for freak’s sake…what the deuce can be implied from that?
    And then your ignorant self goes on to write that “hoes are to be dominated and not glorified”. And what do we say about egotistic a**holes who come on public forums to bash women so blatantly, when even they are not the finest specimen themselves? What do we do to men who decide to have their random pick of women and advocate female bashing? Do we repudiate and denounce you or do we lock you in some underground dungeon and use you only for lifting heavy stuff? Check yourself, man. Yes, you’re entitled to your opinion, and yes, some women are very irritating gold-diggers, but it gives you absolutely no right or justification to poorly and inaccurately generalize Nigerian women.

    we all kinda of forget that movies arew fictional and are meant to show things on the extreme these guys are actors we cant say because sharon stone acts overly sexual parts … means that americans are that way guys abeg .. its a movie and yea its meant to be that way ..
    but on a more serious note its high time we made timeless movies

    tired of all these trend movies

    in my opinion, i think the producer of the movie should capitalise on his 15 minute of fame and get blackberry company to pay him for doing a good job of endorsing the brand and advertising it so much…the movie in itself is just hilarious and i had a good time watching it. it reflects the extent of how obsessive we get over every new technology even though i think it was a bit over exaggerated …i mean which naija woman go pack comot for husband house because of black berry?…lol

    BTW….whats even funnier is that the same producers produced “Beyonce and Rihanna“, “White Hunters“, “Girls Cot” and “Life Partners” to which i have seen all of them but Life Partners! na wa! White Hunters painted Nigerian women/women as gold diggers willing to do anything to marry a white man and possibly move abroad. even using juju etc…. they painted those women in a horrible light.
    beyonce and rihanna showed women scheming against each other to win some sort of music competition (the movie is one of the worst i’ve seen) but still paints women to be “somehow conivving” towards each other.
    Girls Cot (which i agree is a funny movie, especially Genny’s role) makes these women out to be also conivving and scheming towards men. they sleep with men to either blackmail them or get money from them. the storyline was a little better, since genny actually was the vice president’s daughter, which he had abandoned when she was a child in suit of his politial career. but the movie still shows these women to be cheap, and classless, and scheming.
    they also produced the movei War Game with Ini, Oge, and Marry that i mentioned earlier. as well as Face of Africa/Show Girls (sequel to Face of Africa). both movies were pretty much about campus girls and rivalry. bad girls that didn’t care about anything else other than competing with other girls on campus. SMH….
    so i ask…..what issue do these producers have with women? seriously? what is their facsination with making women look bad? i understand its a movie, but it seems to be a trend among these producers in particular.

    the funny thing is its only the first two parts of the movie that have been circulating online…part 3 and 4 are not up yet. as with most Nollywood movies, there is a lesson at the end. i believe the story in itself was heavily exaggerated, but lets pray for a good ending. just as “White Hunters” was kinda exaggerated (and funny, i will admit) there was a lesson to be learned in the end. im sure the ending will show how people shouldnt be so desperate to do anything for A PHONE and other material things.

Everyone has a ‘craze’ of some sort…

    We are not saying copy foreign movies, we are saying there are talented writers in nigeria use them instead of crappy things….

    We need new creative writers. We can’t keep making movies about the same things all the time. Nollywood is a representation of Nigeria to the outside world. when you keep making movies about how materialistic Nigerian girls are of cause people will start to believe it. Most Naija men think we are always after their money which to me now is not surprising anymore because that’s what the media especially Nollywood always has to say about us. I actually had to ask my friend who went to college in Nigeria if professors demanding sex from student for A’s is very common because Nollywood makes it seem like most male professors do it.

    A lot of East Africans watch Nollywood movies and they actually think most Nigerians do voodoo because of how popular the practice is in nollywood movies. One even asked me if i had a ring that helps me pass exam (how ridiculous, i wan slap the gurl dat day sef). I realized they have never been to Nigeria so all they know is what they see in our movies. there was even a time nollywood will make a stupid movie and have the audacity to say it’s a true life story at the beginning.
    all the retarded movies including this one that i’ve seen recently all seem to be starring the same actors. the guy that acts as tonto’s uncle just creeps me out now ever since i saw him in a trailer getting his nipple licked by another guy. The movie could have been better, if they didn’t force some of the role. how can u buy something at the store and pay online in like 2 secs. that was ridiculous. it is not by force to be kool o. oh yea, that is another problem nollywood has. they try too hard to be kool but end up looking stupid.

    I hate that they made this movie into 4 parts like really? they could have just edited it better and taken the stupid scenes out n just put everything into one part.

    Personally, I dont have issues with BB, I just cant stand why BB is now a virus spreading faster than HIV/AID in niaj. I believe the movies was made to showcase what BB is doing to the naij society. Thus, this movie portrays a typical naij babe @ Uni using BB as a level of status… Its inferior and its a negative style of need, where most girls/boys might feel peer pressured to get a BB to feel among. It is not needed, and BB shouldn’t be a determining factor for anything..

    I think that naij pple should take a chill pill on this BB business and others should refuse to be intimidated or insecure because they do not own a BB.

    Nevertheless, I am a set trender not a follower, way too many pple use and own BB its does not do it for me…

    The movie title alone is repelling. I’m glad some people are moving nollywood forward and this is a product of some of the people not willing to let go of all these pedestrian stories. one thing i know from experience though is that most times; movies are shot with different titles and released with difference titles; meaning, Oge and co. could have been given a script with a not-so-ridiculous title and could be as embarrassed as we all are to see this. But still, script-wise; Oge should have ran wen approached. Please all this producers with no know-how should step aside and stop bringing down the name of nollywood and rubbing it in the mud!

  112. ch

    March 24, 2011 at 1:42 pm

    I think this movie depicts the level of mediocrity and lack of creativity in nollywood, from the movie title to the cast and producers. For crying out loud, this same producer has done exactly the same kinda films with different titles. Girls cot, white hunters and this all have the same theme,ladies prostituting for money. Its such a shame that there is no census board or if there is, one that will put a stop to these sort of rubbish that tarnish the image of the country abroad. Where is a story that talks about ladies who have achieved a lot for themselves by working hard, soaring over the challenges of the society and making a name for herself? None. All we get are these exaggerated depiction of a group of the society. I am of the opinion that women rights organisations should start denouncing these sort of films which debase the female folk. How will people take young women like me serious when all they see of them on tv is this sorta crap. And to all the cast of that movie, u guys definitely dnt want to be stars if u keep staring in such movies that make u look & sound stupid. I rest my case

    BLACK AMERICAN FILMS are worse than Nigerian films. I repeat, Black American films are worse than Nigerian films. Only Tyler Perry and a few others have managed to save their face. They’re all on BET and gosh, they suck. I’ve come not to take most of these commenst seriously as I’ve realised most of them are from people who live in the states. You’re bored half the time and this is the only way you get your high. I will not watch a movie titled blackberry babes but I understand why anybody would make a film like that, it does represent the average Nigerian, always wanting to feel, to do things bc others are doing it. I think this is the core of the movie, not much different from the story of Jenifa. The movie has commercial value, I can already tell, and movie producers are not here to please you but to recoup their cost. If Nollywood is too crappy for you, there are always other woods. I find it silly that people who hate and only have negative things to say about Nigerian movies yet they keep following everything about the industry. It shows you up as brainless, if you don’t like a thing, you leave it alone. Others do and that’s why the industry has succeeded. Go invest in Nursing and follow it. As for the person who said Oge needs money for milk, I can only ask that the good Lord in heaven forgive you.

    What the movie says, as many of our movies and current societal culture do; is that we are a people – Nigerians – with collective low self esteem. After “they” came to our land in the 1600’s and told us we were not good enough; that we were a bush, primal, uncivilized people, who needed governing and control by a group higher than us (the “they”). That our way of life, spiritual practices, style of dress (mostly nude), skin color, hair texture, adornments, way our kingdoms ruled….all of it was beneath, sub-standard, low, sub-human, monkey, animalistic, scary, taboo, tribal, frightening, black, dark. Yes, after they came, we (Nigerians…Africans) became a group of people with collective low self esteem. Pretending to love who we are today, when what we love the most is not at all a reflection of us, but rather, how close some of us can appear to be like “them”. So, if they say it’s good. We follow. If they say it’s bad, we leave it. Blackberry Babes, is us. Next year, it will be iPhone Iyawos, followed by Android Aunties. lol Kai! It’s all very sad. (too bad we can’t love ourselves as much as Indians, Asians or Onyigbo people love their culture and history….we would be sooo much better off).

I’m in NY and on campus ALL as in ALL the African students i know (even guys) were talking bout the movie..s o i decided to watch. I just thot it was funny and a little bit exagerated but iono ..i know der r a lot of extreme girls but I don’t like how it’s only ONE girl in the whole movie that wasn’t crazy about BB….come one now that just make Nigerian girls look silly.. Anyway I had a BB for a month and it was only because my brother didn’t like it and he gave it to me. I didn’t like it either. I def prefer Androids and iPhones. Also who calls it Black berry FONE..omggggg weirdos everyone calls it a blackberry or BB..

    First of all You don’t call our so called (Nigerian Movie, Movie They are Nigeria Drama). What a rubbish drama. In this 21st century they’re suppost to be doing movie or drama that educate and enlight our people and kids instead they are celebrating what a a low life low class wanna be… What the hell is that BlackBerry shit of a drama.
    It’s not even the Drama that grab my attention. It’s the Bleaching of Oge Okoye and Tonto Dikeh that frighten me. What kind of message are they passing to our childen? That their dark skin is not good enough. Nigerians in spot light are suppose to be roll models to our childen. I FIND THIS VERY WORRYING. If they’re not proud of who they are dosen’t that tell us something. For me it is obvious they’re not fit to sell us any drama.

    I think your over thinking it. I am Half Nigerian, and really was never interested in that part of me until recently so I consider myself the outside looking in. I understand that its a movie and not a true reflection of nigerian culture. People like stuff.. in America girls do the same thing for iphones, apartments, and cars. Ever consider how the LA starving actress has the newest LV bag?

    In a way its realistic, naija girls are too fashion crazy, and too crazy over what the western world is doing. So ehen BB came out, Naija people de go craze, but now its over…everybody has it. I want to travel to Nigeria for some time from the UK…and I feel like buying BB just for that and keeping my iphone home. Just because everyone has BB already, so no one should give me short sleeve just for iphone. mcheww.
