    Nice effort. We need more content that promotes our history and makes us more aware of our country and how we arrived at our current stat. it’s a shame that our generation cares less about these important things. Long live Naija

    lovely. These are the types of movies i want to see from nigeria, historic , bluntly gripping stories, of our histories. These are the types of movies that win oscars, movies that depict history without too much bias, so that we may learn and not repeat it. As a future movie maker and investor, I am glad i saw that nigerian stories can be constructive yet dramatic, without corniness.

    Wow!! This is truly expectional.

    Blehed Ojukwu’s accent though and painted Ifeajuna in an extremely good light.

    Wow… I am so impressed. Initially didn’t expect much but wow. These are the kind of stories that I want to watch. Stories that teach us about our history and that have a strong moral lesson that we can learn from. These are the kind of movies that will make Nollywood respected in the world and carve our own niche in the world. Bravo and we’ll done.
