“If It Seems Too Good To Be True, It Probably Is” | Watch Ishaya Bako’s Short film – “Easy Money”




I’m slowly but surely buying into the awesomeness that comes with the work of film maker, Ishaya Bako. His films have a way of addressing real issues and real people. This short film titled “Easy Money”, brings to life the lure of scams and how people from different walks of life fall prey to them.

Written by Emil B. Garuba, produced and directed by Ishaya Bako, this film is one to watch.

So, if an investment seems too good to be true, then it probably is… don’t fall for a scam.

    Very informative. Ignorance is not an excuse. There’s no genuine investment that can guarantee such returns. Investment returns takes time.

    Loooooollll…… It’s more serious than it looks,,, corruption has eaten deep into our systems….we all need to be careful and most importantly be CONTENTED WITH WHAT YOU HAVE because ALL THAT GLITERS IS NOT GOLD …. Fighting corruption starts with us –I mean it starts with you as an individual …. We should learn from this … This play should be aired on tv for Nigerians to view .. And to be very much aware !!!!!
