    Kehinde is so under rated. Great body of work yet still underground. Im hoping this takes her higher

    BN , Olumide is worthy of mention in the headlights, his an AMVCA nominee.
    Ade Bantu, all ur eye popping won’t make d ladies go away, you’re an eye candy.
    Kehinde’s weight and colour fluctuates in various movies, (could just be the camera) it’s all part of what makes you a great actor, I think…
    Bimbo’s intro to nollywood, had the teaser of the movie she starred alongside RMD saying; “a star is born”. I dare say that star has kept shinning.

    It seems Bimbo Akintola decided to stay with theater, its a pity cos she a great actress. Maybe she doesn’t get scripts from Nollywood.

      Yes, because the scripts don’t make sense. She can’t just act in any movie. She’s a great actress!

    I love that names of movies are not more Beyonce and Rihanna, Do you love me?, Lost Love, Forbidden Apple etc type names anymore. Big ups to the ones thinking outside the box.

    This movie is completely useless. And to think it had some hype. I was totally disappointed. I’m not sorry to say because I wasted my money and time. Nollywood, this is the reason I hate seeing your movies especially at cinemas. It’s your business if you don’t improve.

    Indeed!. Their finished work is still a shame and a mess except a few.
