    Father Lord, Egbami. Ki leleyi. What were they thinking, OMG. They couldnt afford photoshop or what. OMG, I know where this ratchet poster came from. Anyone remember that insanely hot poster of Desperate Housewives, where they all had red amazeball dresses on with thigh high slits and they were each holding a half eaten apple. Nollywood will not kill me o. Just when you think nah, they can never shock you again, GBAM, they drop it, and you faint. I have to wipe that image from my brain, I can never look at cottage cheese teh same way again. Yuck, yuck, yuck

    Wait, I forgot. Halima Abubakar is involved. What was I expecting really. She embodies the definition of tacky and unbelievably crass. As for Yvonne Nelson, girl you fall my hand o, that can’t be your thigh can it? Even an amateur media student or photography student can’t produce this. Who gave the go ahead for this hot mess? Doesnt quality control mean anything. Lola (hits my forehead), where do you think you are, quality control ko, pest control ni

    February 13, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    They just copied the hot poster of Desperate housewives…just that this is an epic fail. Halima try and upgrade na, haba. Even with all the criticism, u no want surprise us and change for the better. Yvonne, I’m just surprised u are here. Suprisingly, Moyo Lawal looks amazing

  21. Aibee

    February 13, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    Oh My God! The poster is ratchet raised to the nth power. And the comments, BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Bellanaijarians don kill me o. This is a disaster on all levels.
    An Yvonne Nelson, how could you be part of this? Just when I was falling in love with you after that mess with Inyanya and Tonto, you go and fall my hand. Dayuum!

    February 13, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    They should have just called the movie, Depserate Mistresses. As in the Poster dikwa really serious. But I will watch this, purely to laugh at them, pick out some gbagauns here and there and hopefully have a new annoying soundtract stuck in my head.

    Boom Shaka Laka Boom!

    One question: why would Yvonne Nelson involve herself in such ratchetness ehn kwa??? 🙂

  27. e-bukun

    February 13, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    Aaaaah Halima please retire ehn. Save yourself further humiliation, and save us too. Gassshhh! Look at you wacking on the apple…ahh, I can’t. This whole experiment is a failure.
    As for people saying “WE” Nigerians lack creativity and originality? See generalization o. How many people are part of the we? Halima is no representative of me and my creativity, so you can put yourself in the same category but don’t include everyone with your “WE” the people.

      hehehehehe!!! yes oh…I will watch, whatz my concerns?? But remember, watching is different from buying or going to the cinema. As for me and my house, My one kobo is not going into this…..I will wait till its free on some random website…In fact am going to watch at work so I don’t use my precious Kilobytes that I paid for….
      While I actually buy good Nigerian/Ghaian movies so I can entertain my guests….I am very proud of my thievery in this case…

    February 13, 2013 at 4:48 pm

    Nollywood sha!! Do they really have to copy the desperate housewives poster? The poster is just tooooooooo horrible. It clearly shows lack of creativity from the producers. I’m nt even gonna bother myself to watch the trailer.

    let’s get something out of the way, yvonne nelson isnt a fantastic actress, she just plasters cameras with sexuality and artificial class. so her been in this movie isnt shocking. now on to the movie an the producer who traveled around d world and spent millions to make her movie one to beat; i am using my fourth tissue now to wipe my tears for you halima. so that fake ass gun shot was part of the millions u spent? smh

    that last girl on the extreme left would have loved to have agbalumo (udara). Looks like she’s not too happy with that apple.

    February 13, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    Last time i made a comment on something Halima oriented, my comment was not posted. Here is another Halima comment attempt … Halima needs real friends, to tell her the real truth. If i , or anyone else here making a comment was her friend, we would say “Girl! That poster is not gonna cut it. Lets try something different” or “Girl! this blonde wig is not the business, u r too cute for that”…instead someone is giving her really bad advice. Whoever you are, STOP giving Halima BAD ADVICE!!!!

  39. Sisi Eko

    February 13, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    Wow! In this day and age of the wonderful New Nollywood movies coming out of Nigeria, movies of this nature are still being released to set us back again. The image quality is….speechless! This must have been done by a business man/woman. A creative person, not to talk of a filmmaker, can release this and call it a film. Crazy.
