    Please if u are confused and thinking of watching the movie!! please don’t waste your money. I have never seen a story-line that stupid! the characters didn’t make sense. What a waste of good actors… i was very angry after watching very angry !

      Obviously you did not watch this movie! I have seen it and so have many of my friends! You’re probably just a stupid ass hater. It cannot be the same movie you and i watched. Unless you’re just uneducated and blind. Please take a seat and be quiet.

      ANON, she’s not a stupid ass hater. She obviously watched the movie and is being blunt since she paid for it, and you’re obviously a groupie or a weirdo who can’t and won’t want to hear the truth especially if you’re part of someone’s clan, or a groupie. Not everything is hate, hunny. This is Monday and this is Christmas season, calm your ass down. Kisses to you!

      Seriously I have not watched d movie but I don’t want to believe this is true cuz the publicity made abt it was too much ,eventhough I kept havx d feeling it wouldn’t be up to expectation


    December 21, 2015 at 12:33 pm

    Dakore looking really nice. Omoni o hmmmm. Beautiful dark-skinned babe, how did u end up on Stella’s hot seat and ETC’ “shading” articles?

    • Jen

      December 21, 2015 at 2:02 pm

      I don’t like Omoni, I can’t stand her at all but Nigerians REALLY need to stop thinking everyone is bleaching. It’s sad cause I personally have close people who’ll just see someone on TV and even in photos and they’ll automatically say “they’re bleaching”. It gets old after a while abeg.


      December 21, 2015 at 2:23 pm

      You completely missed my point honey. It’s not bleaching we talking about here. Not all all….

    ok im starting to get curious about this movie. The promo is everywhere.. has anyone seen it? is it sweet? before I finally give up on Iroko.. is it on Iroko?

    • Californiabawlar

      December 21, 2015 at 7:18 pm

      Oluronbi my iroko sister ? (God forbid o!) Chop hi-5!?? I just took a break from iroko too….it’s best to do that periodically so the movies can kinda pile up.
      Meanwhile, did you watch all them ‘series’….my friend (who fully utilized my subscription to it’s max potential) turned me on to them, my favorites are Poisoned Bait, Lagos Wives and another one life that….lol.
      Poisoned Bait was soo good, I shamelessly got all hot and bothered by Gideon! Pheww?

      @C-bawler -Are they that good? I did not know. Same here. My friend in France enjoys my Iroko more than I do gan self. I have always skipped the series ‘cos I hate getting addicted to series like really its no good and I just always thought they would be bad or cliche.. ok now. You have given me xmas motive. You know, I even got my friend’s Ibaka Tv password (try to get a password if you can) I think those people try pass Iroko yoruba movie wise .. I saw this one the other day called “Victims”- CHOI! It was fantastic.. I wish they spoke more yoruba in the movie sha. But I like Iroko for the ghetto yoruba movies. I wont lie, the main reason I subscribed to Iroko was because I was trying to watch “Sunday Dagboru” on youtube and the ads were so annoying. lool.

    Best story line ever…bitter truth about what goes on in different marriages.
    My bestfriend’s husband has been asking me out forever,
    Thank God for the wisdom to switch off on both.
    May God deliver us from Adam.

      @chichi, that’s sad. Why are some men like this? The painful thing is if u tell ur friend, that would likely be the end of ur friendship as she’ll term u a home wreaker, especially if you are not married.

    Until they write a story more complex, they can never get all round good reviews. How’s this storyline and cast setup any different from all those Ghanian movies about men and women cheating (their own always has some random chick narrating).
    Anywhoozies na dem sabi….all that money and talent and this is it?
    Aunty Mo, please next time give Kunle Afolayan the money….he’ll help you use it very well…bros is kukuma always complaining about cash flow….#noshade

    I saw fifty today with my friends, the story line is just there. With such talented actors, a more intriguing storyline would have been IT. Great directing, acting, use of language but storyline is a 3/10 for me.

    December 21, 2015 at 9:42 pm

    I loved the movie! The cast did really well and people in my hall were laughing all through. Had some unexpected moments though….If you know what I mean. I would give the movie 8/10! If you haven’t seen it already, you should definitely give it a shot. Kudos to the producer and cast.

    Half of a yellow sun will remain the only Nigerian movie I saw and did not regret. Besides, cinemas are for action movies if you ask me

      You should see Beasts of no nation. It is on Netflix, and it is such a good and eye opening story to what goes on with child soldiers

    I thoroughly enjoyed FIFTY! Great performances by all the ladies! Production was on point too! Kudos Mo Abudu

    Some thing tells me that Emem isong have done something similar, who else have seen “Lagos cougars”? Same concept,women going after younger men, abeg the hype is too much, anyways madam MO get money and connections, I still prefer “Road to Yesterday, full of suspense,

    • chichi

      December 21, 2015 at 11:47 pm

      Have you seen the movie? Only one of the four ladies was into dating younger men. The other ones had their own issues. I’ve not seen Lagos cougars though but doesn’t sound like the story of Fifty.

    December 21, 2015 at 11:25 pm

    Brilliant!!! Top notch production. World class acting. I love love loved it! My friends and I can’t stop talking about it. We watched it today after we saw Omoni Oboli at the cinema. I must say she’s more beautiful in person and friendly too. Well done Mrs Abudu. Doing us proud.

    • Dani

      December 22, 2015 at 1:29 pm

      Everyone I know that have met her anywhere say she’s very friendly. I believe in giving credit where it is due. Enjoy your day

    Please can they refund my money back! The plot 0/10.. #nobeef,Who does this kind of movie in this present age all i see is that a lot of money was spent. The only thing interesting in the movie is the cast

    I attended the premiere which was arguably the most classy Nigerian event of 2015 and My friends and I are going to the cinema to see it again on Thursday. I love how they portayed women in their 50s in the movie. Not all the time 20year olds with daddy’s money or sugar papa. Show us real issues! Kudos to the crew and their cast

    Havent seen Fifty yet but Omoni is very silly and childish to ask people to go and watch the movie “‘so Mo can make her money back”. The movie was Mo”s Abudu. idea and no one sent her message ( mind you am not upset with Mo in any way ) that was silly.
