    Great idea for a movie. With adequate research on cultural differences and good setting, it will no doubt be a nice movie.

    The part where the Hausa girl tells her dad “must he be a Muslim” is ridiculously unrealistic….. Regardless, it looks like a very promising one. Oya you people should please do sharp sharp and put it on Netflix as soon as it’s released 🙂

    Igbo boy meets hausa girl, girls father doesn’t want her to marry him. there is tension in the relationship. Igbo boys mother somehow falls in love with hausa girls father. They don’t discover this to late. Girl gets sick, brings everyone together. everyone lives happily ever after..

    Nolywood and their trailers

    What is now left to watch???

    AND SOMEBODY GET OC UKEJE a fucking electric shaver. HE NEEDS TO STOP USING SHAVING STICK in 2016. Only in Naija will leading man be displaying shaving bumps like that. its distracting and borderline irritating.
