Nollywood Movie Review: A hilarious comedy, starring Klint “Da Drunk” Igwemba as the only son of Chief Amadi. The family despairs over Klint’s alcoholism but nobody wants to tackle him about his drinking as his father places the blame on himself for his condition. Amazingly it is when Paddy a houseboy joins the family that a huge change for the better comes to pass.

Mercy Johnson plays a woman called Mosun and Rita Dominic plays a woman called Preye. They are best friends from childhood into adulthood. The root of Preye’s wild and promiscuous behaviour is the sexual abuse she endured as a child in the hands of her uncle. It is as though by taking control of her sexuality and becoming a seductress in such a dominant way she is trying to wash away that feeling of being powerless as a child. By contrast Mosun is the complete opposite to Preye, disgusted by the idea of casual sex and dowdily dressed to downplay her sexuality. She too has been a victim of child sexual abuse at the hands of her step-father.

Twist of Fate

From the outset of this film I was bored, but still I persevered. The fist 15 minutes was boring and confusing. We see a girl going for a job being bribed by a doorman that will not let her into the building otherwise and we see a girl accusing her mama of favouring her son over her daughter.
