    well done! thumps up to the director and co..
    Not a Nigerian… but I have noticed in Naija movies Tokunbo is stereotype for being shortsighted…#! Haba I have asked the meaning of Tokunbo bc I cldn’t understand y each movie I watch and there is a Tokunbo I don’t expect much from the character. Is it an inside joke in Naija bc the name definition and xter don’t match?….. but I was screaming Tokunbo how can u b sooooooooo stupid……………
    Obi Obi! na you find your own!
    Folarin! ehm I c your hustle…. u ooze out your xter trait out of the pores of your skin very believable. I don’t jealous guys like you that hustle to the top for power.
    Yvonne and co… plot… people can relate to this character…. Nene leakes has described Kim Z ( who use to date married rich men and call them big daddy) as some1 who doesn’t respect the girl code aka selfish. And if the person has shown you to be selfish don’t expect them to respect “yours”.
    Y complain when Yvonne is being referred to ” East nothing”…. It is what it is… it’s a true representation of some Nigerians , African’s and persons when they want to belittle another tribe or person… I have been snubbed by some Nigerians who have it ozzing in their head they are rich…

      I am not yoruba, but i think it is given to people born in a foreign land. If you meet a tokunbo, just know he was born outside nigeria.

    Bahahaha… That moment when Toks licks his fingers and shifts his body to settle into what seems to be his alternate world away from reality, and then.. Knock knock. I thought to myself “Hmm.. you have just started; na so wahala go dey follow you, and I hope you pay triple times what you did”.

    I also thought it was nice to finally see the man Toks has always maligned. The look on papa Toks’ face when he first saw Toks though lol, as in Goddanggit, you look a hot mess. LOL! The man managed to start getting on my nerves almost immediately with some of his comments. Why is it that in our culture, the mother gets blamed when a kid turns out bad but the father gets all the praise when the kid is successful?? *rolleyes* That scene destroyed my ability to appreciate the surprising turn of their conversation (for better), and properly process the powerful moment that seemed to begin the rebuilding of a broken relationship, one of reassurance, hope and determination. It’s a shame he had to go like that – at least that’s what it looks like.

    It was hard not to bring this back to reality and ponder many what ifs, and think more broadly about how costly poor infrastructure can be. What if Toks could have dialed 911 to report the medical emergency? What if there was a service similar to triple A (AAA) – 24 hour road side assistance Toks could have called to perhaps avoid what happened? I can’t help but remember a number of my close friends whose parents died of preventable deaths attributable to poor infrastructure. Ironically, Folarin’s political pursuits in this episode underscores this point in the way it indirectly portrays the misplaced priorities of our politicians and how they focus only on money, power and influence while the masses suffer.

    *shakes head* *sad face*

    Anyways moving on to Eki, that whole talk about being Mo’s really really good friend, hmmmm *yimu*. With the way tension is building between these two ehn?! I was relieved when Mo asked her out to dinner. I like how things are heating up between these two. Hehe…

    Obi: you don’t even know what is coming at you!

    SHARON: “I will make it a personal aim to ruin everything you consist of.” Yepa!! *Goosebumps*

    Yvonne, such an eeeddddiooot!

    Mekka is the biggest odeh (stupid person) of no category

    Illa: “why would I lie? Ask.” *goosebumps*

      🙂 Ms Sane… please that line of the mother being blame is an old tale. Check out in the book of proverbs in Bible it does address this. Fathers are praised when the child does well and mothers are blamed when they don’t.
      There’s nothing new under the sun. I believe ie y there are records of women Jesus Christ personally ministered to bc women are seriously being belittle meanwhile they are help mates…

    Why do series generally need to torment someone with all these finales ehn….. cant they just keep rolling…. who cares bout seasons…when I’ve finished watching episode one to hundred, you can go and repackage them into seasons for sale…biko this anticipation is annoying!

    In the meantime:
    – Yvone needs spiritual slap…..they are certainly following her frm the village…. when u want to make a move like that, with the hope that it sticks, you best be sure you have all ur angles covered! How can you proceed without declaring such ,easy ammunition.??.

    -Eki and Mo…..I am feeling this movement!

    -Toks, I feel sorry for him after hating him…..just as things started looking up…then…pow! And it just got me wondering bout how d world works……that on ur day of mourning people find reasons to rejoice….. its a hard place to be!

    Please BN/Ndani insiders…any time frame for d new season, make absence no go make the heart forget o!

    The dude who plays Tokunbo is such a good actor and the scene with his dad almost had me in tears. Nice reconciliation.

    Why o Why did Tokubo’s Dad have to die .. he didn’t deserve it , but come o Tokunbo that phone call you made couldn’t you have made it before going to search for a vulcanizer and every one knows in Lagos you keep driving till you get to a safe zone … Tokunbo that was silly of you

    Yvonne- did you think Meka wouldnt find out – like the saying goes “there is nothing hidden under the sun2

    Obi – eku ise o …lol,

    This is what scares me about Nigeria! Who do you turn to incase of emergency? Lack of infrastructure has been the death of so many people. They say you have to be rich to enjoy Naija, but in this instance (Tokunbo’s dad”s attack), your wealth cannot save you?

    I love gidi up but not impressed with this final episode. It didn’t live up to the hype.

    Also the scene with Tokunbos dad dying just wasn’t realistic. Almost like they forgot we are in the age of cell phones.

    Good job to theteam. Look forward to season 3

      THANK YOU!!! I’ve loved very many moments of Gidi Up’s season 2 but this finale just left me seriously wanting more. Come on, producers-of-the-show, how can you not be seeing the things which don’t add up for us who’re viewing it?

      The final moments (& this is a spoiler for those of you, like Concerned Boyfriend, who decide to read the comments before watching) where Toks’ car breaks down. Let me be very honest with you – from the point during their meal where fences got mended and Toks announced he’d drop off his dad, I knew pops was going to die (having watched enough fictional drama to teach me to always expect an arch). However and as obvious as that plot twist was, I expected a better thought out sequence of events leading to the tragedy.

      Case in point – WHO IN LAGOS WILL NOT ANTICIPATE SOME FORM OF CRIMINAL ACTIVITY IF THEIR RANGE ROVER BROKE DOWN ON A DARK AND LONELY STREET? AND THEN YOU WAKA’D PAST A TOUT WHO WAS LIKELY SMOKING WEED AND KEPT WAKA’ING PAST, KNOWING FULLY WELL YOUR ELDERLY, DEFENCELESS DAD WAS IN THE VERY CONSPICUOUS RANGE YOU’RE WAKA’ING AWAY FROM??

      And the clanger – his mobile was fully operational all the while. So why didn’t he call a friend to bring help, or call a cab man to come get them or just generally do the needful with his phone? “Ah mean”. Come on producers, Tokunbo is not that gormless, naaaa…

      And as for Yvonne & Meka’s very predictable arch. Again, producers, abeg na – don’t spoil a good thing. So this supposedly sharp Igbo gal like Yvonne wey dem raise for village (I don’t mean that literally but you get my point), she wouldn’t have calculated her very slim chances of Sharon (the wronged fiancé, likely hurting from her man’s betrayal) keeping quiet about her questionable past once Folarin caught them both returning from their love tryst in Obudu? Or even worrying about the creative ways that the ever vengeful Folarin will surely find to shame her, now that he knows?? This sharp Lagos gal can’t be so naive about riding away into the sunset with her misbegotten man (to paraphrase Sharon’s words and can I quickly commend her for really shining in this episode? Her scene was the best of the lot), naaaa…

      Eki and Mo’s scenes were snooze worthy. No offence to Titilope who’s poetry I’ve a new found love for.

      Chei, producers, you’ve done us wrong oh. Many of your watchers have been keen aficionados of series ever since the ancient days of “The Bold & The Beautiful”, “Dallas”, “Lost”, “24”, “Heroes”, dem dem… not to talk of the higher bars being set by modern day series We love your work to date so much that we will call you out for dropping the ball so that it can be picked up with dexterity and alacrity when you start planning for season 3.

      I’m still a fan and you guys have done some great work here, nonetheless. 🙂

      While I agree with somethings you’ve said, I mean the show could have been better, but wait his car didn’t break down, he had a flat tire. Do you call a friend to come and get you if you have a flat tire or do you try to find help around you? Most of the guys I know would try to sort it out themselves, the daft thing was not locking the door but then we all make mistakes.

      That said, the fact that you can compare them to all the other shows you’ve mentioned (that probably have tonnes more money behind them and probably more experienced hands) is a great thing for them and for the industry. I’m all for feedback to help people grow but lets be careful not to drown something that has so much potential in overwhelming negativity.

      Like you, I expect to see huge growth in Season 3. I’m a believer and I’m sure Ndani will deliver.

    I’m sorry everyone, but CAPITAL NO! I AM NOT LOVING EKI and MO’s “hook-up” *straight face*

    An it just breaks my heart this had to happen to Tokunboh and his dad on “make peace” day. Too sad really.

    Ok so here I am seriously plotting season 3.. not minding that the plot already “Obviously” exists…
    ** how tokunboh’s father won’t die afterall (bt then I’m thinking, if it’s all “good stuff” it becomes predictable and uninteresting. So maybe he shld, but surprise Tokunboh with an iheritance…
    ** how Eki wld hear about wht happened with toks, nd go be by his side. (amen)
    ** how Meka won’t end up with either yvonne or Sharon.. not because he dosnt love yvonne, bt cos she’s goofed big time and he’s been hurt. Then he still won’t marry Sharon, cos he knws now, wht love is.. nd it’s nothng close to wht he shared with her

    Ok lemmie shut it.. Length an breadth is I luv #GidiUp and I thnk cast and crew are super amazing!

      ooops Eki be by Toks side?…. love can be blind oh. true… this same RESPONSIBLE Toks that left Eki on the abortion table. But when it was time to satisfy his mamba. He didn’t contemplate the consequences….
      Eki is with some1 who appreciates her as a true wine….
      Characters like Yvonne have one mindset… she might have been influenced by many things including selfishness, ungratefulness and disrespecting Sharon ( being that Sharon makes business decision without including her input)… Might be an unconscious rebellion…. All these don’t make her actions justifiable…
      I would just like to see Yvonne’s madness fighting fire for fire with Folarin and co… like when Omotola and Rita Dominic were ring leaders in separate cults…
      I think Obi needs a miracle will Jesus Christ appear to him and save him?

    I really enjoyed this series; a great job done by the whole team infront of and behind the camera. Tokunbo’s dad was a brilliant edition to the finale series, he had such a natural acting style. Looking forward to the next series – great to see new and more experienced talent doing their thing.

    The producers did an excellent job given what I’m sure is a low budget production.

    Please BN pass this message to the producers of the show – we need a soundtrack for Gidi Up series 1 & 2. I’m sure it will be a huge success – a lot of people have commended these uncelebrated musicians featured on Gidi Up. I for one would purchase multiple copies of the cd for family and friends – Christmas is around the corner o, so please help these artists make some money by releasing their songs on a soundtrack.

    Very well done Gidi Up.Loved Eki’s poetry. I particularly love how this series teaces a lot o life lessons without being ‘preachy’. As an upcoming entrepreneur seeing Tokunbo’s mistakes has been an eye opener. Good effort team. Bring on series 3.

    I am really impressed with all the crew of Gidi up. You all have been awesome. I really admire the cinematic camera movement, the color grading, the sound effect, the picture quality and the unique charisma of all the cast. i really must commend the director, Jadesola Osiberu for a work well done. And not forgetting to mention the person behind the creative part of the production (Post) Muhammad Atta, Your works speaks a lot about you. We all are anxiously waiting for the season 3 of this wonderful masterpiece.
