    BN, I’m slightly amused by your description of David Oyelowo as “British-American of Yoruba ethnicity”. I didn’t even know he was American? Parapo tins?

    I doubt if even Kemi wants to be known as ‘Leading Nollywood director!.’ So what are Kunle Afolayan, Izu Ojukwu and the rest? Packaging much, BN?! Simply state she directed the film. She is on a learning curve too
