    finally nigerian movie makers are beginning to tell the real nigerian stories. May you all continue to succeed, i hope to see a real life movie about ojukwu, the first coup, Ghana must go crisis, abacha, mko, and so many factors and events that have made nigeria what it is today… I hope to see more of the nigerian story told in truth so that we may be able to face the invisible elephants in our parlours.

    I honestly and truly respect Kunle Afolayan. He is one of the people changing the game in the film making (not home video) industry. And the fact that he focuses on the Nigerian story is inspiring. And that Deola Sagoe is acting? Wow!!! I love it and definitely hope to see it.

  • NNENNE August 13, 2013 at 4:16 am

    Great! She really looks like her.

  • Tunmi August 13, 2013 at 4:18 am

    You could have at least gotten the glasses right…that thing is really bugging me. But I love Kunle Afolayan’s works…hmmm…hopefully he can pull the actor out of Deola Sagoe as I really respect Funmilayo Ransome Kuti….as in major respect

    Makeup is GBAI! Now this is what we need in the Nigerian Movie Industry. We do wonderfully well in “make-up”, I mean the usual woman make-up routine. So, next step is to go up several notches to perfect our make-up for film so actors look their part to the T. Saw an old movie with Patience Ozokwo made up to resemble an old woman and I could barely recognize her. The movie itself was poorly made, but her make-up was on point.

  • Foluke August 13, 2013 at 1:36 pm

    Look forward to seeing the movie!

  • Jai August 14, 2013 at 12:28 pm

    kudos to Lola Maja’s team on set, those girls are doing a great job! Can’t wait to see the movie, so far everything I’ve seen looks amazing. Kunle Afolayan is simply the best.
