    This looks like a well produced movie. I am so impressed. It also seems funny. Nigeria keep doing big things. This movie should be watched and supported please. This is quality we long for in the movie industry. First movie I have seen in a long while that I am actually longing to watch.

    Sorry, but isn’t movie ‘ownership’ usually credited to the director of the movie? As far as I know even academic citations would name the director only. How is this Biola Alabi’s movie abeg? Abi is this how it works in Nollywood?

      Not necessarily, sometimes the director is simply a hired hand, sometimes the producers are a hired hand and other times the writer could be a hired hand/outsourced. In nollywood and hollywood both there is no clear line on who owns a movie. The ownership usually belongs to the company that the movie has been licensed to (think “Lion’s Gate, Fox Studios, Venus Productions, Sparrow Productions”). But who do they buy the license from is the real question. There’s no simple answer but I like to lean towards whoever does the running around and the hiring as the owner.

      Nope. The owner of the movie is the producer – unless the producer also directed it. The producer is the one who actually hires the director.

    looks very clean in terms of cinematography and directing but the story, the trailer doesn’t seem funny to me and not an original story
