    Well done. But for a slapstick comedy film in Nigerian cinemas, that is not an achievement. Even Mo Abudu’s film ,Fifty, made about 20 million naira at just the opening weekend. A Trip To Jamaica ,another slapstick, made 35 million naira at just the opening weekend.

      You have to factor in the fact that this is his debut movie as a producer. Also, the level of advertising and publicity was little in comparison to the movies you mentioned. He’s done good, and you’ve got to give it to him.

      The Comparison spirit imbedded in Nigerians is very problematic. You celebrate every milestone, it’s not about who has done it before or who is currently doing but the fact that you achieved a goal of yours. It pushes you more to accomplish even greater things.

      People the world over feel the need to compare between themselves and others- comparing oneself to another isn’t a feature unique to Nigerian alone. It can serve as a reference point for what to aspire to or deter from. It is not always to be presumed as a bad thing to do. It only gets bad when the basis for comparison comes with malicious intend founded on jealousy, envy or sloth.

    I’ve been looking for a means to compliment this guy since 2011. He won my heart for the very first time I saw him on Air-Maroc minding his business: very cool guy. It is true when dey talk say first impression last longer. Sky is your limit!

      Met him at Lagos Airport too years back. Cant remember what year. He was literally all by himself. I went up to greet him and take a selfie. The most humble person ever! Months after I met him at Moji Makanjuola’s daughter’s wedding in Abuja.

      Behavior is just like a smoke, it can never be concealed, Flying Air-Maroc alone testified to his humbleness. I am very sure that he could afford any airlines, but Mike is just Mike that lives in his own lane. On arrival at MMA, there was this old woman that approached him and he gave an attention to this woman till the woman collected her luggage and eventually took pics with her.
      I sensed sense of maturity, politeness, and humbleness from distance. It is good to be good

    I’m very impressed with his role interpretation. He acts well and takes his career seriously. Nonso Diobi, be there kissing codeine upandan…get your shit together and act film( I just had to.)

    not to sound facetious but these type of roles suit Mike way more – than the other movies he does where his acting is just blah, where he will change his tone of voice and scream and shout for no reason. He should stick to these type of village roles. He acts excellent in them. The other kinds of movies – nope.

    nigerians and their bad taste for movies
    They will be blowing their own horns for shitty movies and then when they get to international level like Toronto festival and they get rejected and get bad reviews for every movie they get mad


    continue to praise mediocrity – as you have since 800 bc

    The word is humility. There’s no word like humbleness. And you must be an arrogant person if you expect humility from others. Especially from those above you in social strata
