Another classic yoruba flick produced and directed by Adebayo Salami (oga Bello), when i say classic, i mean classic cos it reminds u of wemimo movies..u know dat kind of thing? It stars Sola sobowale, Bukky wright, Ope Ayeola, Muyiwa Ademola, Funsho Adeolu, Toyin Adegbola, Lanre Hassan, and so many other stars..its a political thriller that revoles around a good president who had a bad wife despite his father's repeated warnings and how his wife tried to chase away a female politician who also had been of great contribution and good to the society but this president gets fed up with his wife's attitude and gets a new wife and the first wife....it has a second part and i cant wait for it..It was good and when i say good, i mean good. Although i almost got tired at the beginning.
I can't wait to see this film

TRACTOR (english)- AJINLE(yoruba)
I will come up with more later on.
Ooops!My mistake!
TRACTOR is not AJINLE,but KATAKATA(not wahala o).
FERTILIZER is AJINLE in yooba.
COOKING VEGETABLES - EWEBE
I am getting edumacated by YMG at long last!Class is in session!:biggrinsa

BTW,also worth noting is Shola Shobowale's performance.She did not explode into one of those her numerous overacting stunts.In this flick,she was controlled,menacing but controlled,which made her xter appear all the more dangerous.The first part ended with her looking like a ticking timebomb with just one second left before blowing everything to smithereens.One of her best acting ever.

Vince, you're right about Sola taming herself so hard in this movie. I am yet to see in the part 2 what she has cooking up to get back at her husband and his new found wife...hmmm, not gonna be a pretty sight for real...at least not with the way Sola looks with all that anger pilled up in her ready to explode anytime. I just hope they try as possible to maintain the class of this movie without having any reason to bring in any kind of juju/ogun into it.


Also, did you notice that the man that played that character of the president sounds so much like Kola Oyewo. If you close your eyes whenever he is being shown, you would think it's Kola talking.

He not only sounds like him,he looks like Oyewo's real life elder brother.They look alike a bit.
They got the casting spot on there,as the two were casted as brothers in the flick.

Well,i am hoping too(Yet to see part 2).Bringing juju into the plot will harm the class and sophistication that the flick has already.

Right. I looked at the end of the credits to see if my assumption on the two of them being real life brothers was true, but I didn't see the name of the man that acted as the president in the listing...or maybe, I didn't search well.

His name was not in the end credit.His name is AYO AKINWANDE,or something.No relation to Kola Oyewo,i guess.

Oga Vince,so how would you rate this one?...out of 10??;)
So far,i will rate the first part....8/10
No messing about.None of those annoying comedy interludes common to YMG flicks.The plot is kept moving on firmly on it's track.The production design(locations,sets design,costumes,camera work,props,etc) is the strongest point of the flick so far,very professional.

I guessed as much... but why didn't they add his name to the credits now...at least he was the lead role in there.

The movie Anthem

Ta lo so pe obirin bawo?
Ta lo so pe obirin bawo?
Ta wan okunrin ba n'leri,ti wan ba n' f'ese ha'le
Ti wan ba ni ki l'obirin fe se
Obirin a fi ye wan,pe awon l'awon l'agbara!
Kai!Talo so pe obirin bawo?!:2:

I just love that song!:biggrinsa

This YMG flick is one of the most gorgeous looking nolly flick that i have seen to date.The production design is just exquisite.
The ending of the story,on the other hand,dissapoints a little bit.I was expecting a lot more fireworks at the climax,but it ended with a quiet whimper.I guess the writers just couldn't build effectively on the tremendous momentum they've created right through the story to the end.
To their great credit,though,the writers kept juju at a distance,thank God!
But all in all,a great watch indeed,and deserve a definite CI status.
BTW,i just love all those Yem-Kem drug commercials.They are entertaining in their own right.

Rating:- 8/10

Vince, I take it that you've seen the part two already...lucky you, I'm hoping that it shouldn't take me that long to see the concluding part of it too.

oh, BTW, It looks like they eventually did away with the juju/ogun stuff too...at least judging from your oppinion on the overall performance of the movie.
