    Lovely event, I love Mr. Afolayan’s body of work….really impressive. One pet peeve of mine tho , when people get an invitation to something that says for example “60s theme dressing” or “all white dressing”‘ and still show up at the event in something other than what the invitation specified. I remember I saw the advert for this on TV and they clearly said something about the 60s theme of dressing. If you don’t want to blend with everyone then simply stay at home. I’m sure the organizers had a look they were going for. Kudos to those who adhered to the dress code.

    I think all movie enthusiasts should watch this movie, I’ve been anticipating it since BN showed us the teaser trailer last year. A lot of people criticize certain female actors turned directors/producers/ogasofeverythings (who shall remain unnamed) for the mediocre acting, extravagant on-screen wardrobes and settings often unrelated to the long drunk texts they call storyline and the often unnecessary use of sex scenes but this is a well made movie with an interesting plot and an amazing which the whole family can watch. Can’t wait to watch it soon with the fam. Half of a yellow sun was also great, so excited about film makers telling african stories 🙂

    Why would anyone be.afraid to adorn the african attire in d 60s. It’s unique, elegant, regalia & rich in culture dt will make any oyinbo green wt envy. It’s a shame we don’t value our own! Just look ao beutiful kehinde looks in a natural tone or regalia kunle’s wife looks compare to Dakore Akande and d likes……mtchew African & inferiority complex
