    OMG!!!! The older Nigerian actresses in experience were not
    forgotten – Gloria Anozie Young, for example. Hei!!!!! Quality
    acting being shown. 2014 is full of shocking surprises.
    Congratulations to everyone involved.

    Did anyone even noticed the movie sounds and looks more
    South African than Nigerian? Also, I don’t think the movie is doing
    so well as we all expected. And it’s very clear that Genevieve
    would have made a better Kainne than that Anika lady. Onyeka Onwenu
    still got it.

      What didn’t she do with Mirror boy? She saved the movie
      with some of her breathe taking scenes. However, Doctor bello
      beyond her control. And do you really prefer black Americans get
      roles for Africans? Do you think they want us in roles for

      No hype about it. You will either leave the cinema hall in
      tears or with wet eyes. It was roundly well acted.

      You can say that again! They should get it out on General Release let’s watch it and rest, ahn ahn? They’ve been hyping this movie for nearly three years now, it’s getting boring. I loved the book so much though, so I’m not holding my breath that the movie will measure up. If it does, fair enough

    Why do you people like reporting rumours and lies?
    So, where is the song and we are now in March?
    Majority of Nigerian hip hop acts are not different from scam artists and that is why they can only be followed by intellectually retarded people.
