    I remember when I watched this, I didn’t realise until after it had ended that I hadn’t looked away from the screen even once. Nigerian short films and movies not shot in English are actually really nice

    Sigh. Can’t even begin to explain the emotions I am feeling right now. even those stupid uncles and cousins that will touch your breast, finger you and make you touch their penis. God help us all. I know of a guy asi who was sexually assaulted by his maid when he was younger.
