MOVIE GISTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE WEEKEND
A beautiful weekend is here, after the hectic week. The choice to give yourself some hours of relaxation is yours. Like the comical saying in my country-Nigeria '' wahala be like bicycle and family problem no de finish’’.
So I will be doing top reviews, listing and recommendations from the entertainment front today with a mindset to encourage Nigerian Canadian contents.
Let’s start with the good news as Black Actors guild first collaborative effort wins in the Canadian Diversity Film Festival 2021.
The uncompleted movie which has all her members on the edge waiting to view is titled Love in transition, the good news filtered through the black actors guild platform into public domain causing excitement and jubilation.
In same light the much awaited release of the movie Tomiwa from the stables of the Empire goose Films has hit the screens for viewing, the 1 hour film had received great comments from viewers and enjoy massive promotions. The film has Nigerian Canadian actors like Racheal Oyiza, Omo Edo, Emilian Andrew, Wale Ariyo, Deborah Ewedafe, Hanna Ayeni and a host of others in the highly rated film.
The film has broken a record of over 500 views within its first hour of release and is highly recommended for the weekend.

Another beautiful recommendation for you is- What went wrong?- This is another Nigerian Canadian movie that was released late in February by delectable producer Fadekemi Momoh. What went wrong? Starring Fadekemi Momoh, Olalekan Adedeji, Emilian Andrew, Bolade Balogun, Kofoworola Lawal, Pelumi Salako, Aminat Daniels.
The story line is a swift beautiful thought provoking love story, I can beat my chest to describe it as a movie worth the watch on Libra TV.

Nigerians are gifted and multi talent globally, this is a hard fact to dispute. The trailer of ‘’The Hallway’’ a cinematic masterpiece was released causing a lot of anxiety among film enthuasists. The film which was produced by Akin Rotimi and directed by legendary Nigerian Canadian trained director Babatunde Agunloye is another film in the can to watch out for.
The movie stars Nollywood star act Nosa Obaseki and has the creative support of ace Nigerian Canadian producer- Isoken Ibieorutomwen also known as Isoken ibie.

As we wrap up this recommendations let us do some quick reviews of 2 major films that made headlines recently.
Fate of Alakada by Toyin Abraham, the much hyped movie found its way to Netlfix and has made over N113.2 Million Naira. Directed by Kayode Kasum.
To me the film was really star studded and indeed a comedy to watch. The choice of Samuel Perry ( Broda Shaggy) as friend to Yetunde was a brilliant decision that helped the movie. The story theme dragged at some points but made up with the beautiful color quality.
Toyin made a brilliant choice of bringing in real characters like the deputy governor of Lagos state and other brand influencers to depict and sell the Nigerian creative sector.
If you have not watched it please do so and let us have your reviews. In the overall I would say it was worth the while and commend Toyin for thinking outside the box. She demonstrated she can truly break more bounds.
Lastly is the much Hyped Coming to America 2, a lot of people has described the movie as overhyped and didn’t meet their expectations, as for me I feel the film as a comedy met its motive of suspense ,twists and humour. The film by Amazon prime in collaboration with legendary Paramount pictures and produced by Eddie Murphy and Kevin Misher is a beautiful entertaining piece with lots of stars, African fabrics and hilarious adventure.
To me the reunion was emotional for me and having our own Davido on stage was a thing of pride. The sound track of our own Burna boy was also used. Needless to say our Ankara fabric was really pronounced in the costume sense.
The movie was an array of black stars reuniting after over a decade on set, It was fun having Wesley Snipes off his action thrilling roles, James jones had an incredible royalty exit from the world, Shari Headley came back as Lisa standing her grounds and what was missing from the part 1 was Lisa’s kid sister who was crushing on Eddie Murphy.
That is it for the weekend entertainment updates, stay safe and awesome
