    I will watch Namaste Wahala and Potato Potahto.
    Still Falling’s and A Lady and her Lover’s trailer doesn’t make sense.
    The feminism and 4x married storyline for Between made me roll my eyes.

    I have seen Isoken and the Royal Hibiscus Hotel.

    A lady and her lover is a short film. Try and watch it, if you haven’t already.. It’s nice

    I’d like to watch Still falling but don’t know where to watch it besides the cinema since I’m not within Naija.
