Nice movie although I enjoyed the soundtrack more than I did the movie.

How did you guys feel about the kids calling their mother by her name? or was Wura a nickname
I don't think their mum's real name was Wura(Gold). I think they tried to depict the youruba adage/saying: "Iya ni Wura" (Mother is Gold)- I didnt like it at first, but once I was made to look at it in that way, I actually thought it was kinda cute. Just depends how everyone sees it.

At first i was a bit confused about it too, thinking that probably she is an aunt that is taking care of them or something before she later narrated on how her dad used to disgust nigerian food et al. I just thought that ok that's the way they feel comfortable in their house o. I mean i know some friends that call their moms by their names cause their mothers ask them to. I always feel awkward hearing it. But did you guys not think that the lady playing the lead role looked very young for the type of job she was doing? Maybe it is only me, her acting was refreshing tho. And that dada boy, hmmmm the way he was flowing in those yoruba poems sef make me trip for am small.

Yes the lead actress was really good and I particularly liked her diction. Hope to see more of her in movies

Sis abeg let us know why.
I mean it had a few flwas i do agree but maybe i just overlooked it cause of the jams and the fresh faces.
To me the movie itself was very refreshing. The storyline if u have a closer look wasnt all that

no bad at all...but i share abike's sentiments on this one

i enjoyed the fact that they had new faces who i thot were great actors,the production was lovely, something different from the NORM, the sound track, i really loved........ however, the storyline needed some tweaks, they spoke more English than yoruba,i wasnt too thrilled about that. and a couple of things which i do not want to analyse right now, but will do in a week or 2.

refreshingly nice

Love the movie!.as much as the story line isnt all that,i think the film was well excuted,i like the combo of the leads and the female lead has a gud diction which u rarely find amongst yoruba artiste,i think they need more of peeps like that in the yoruba industry,tired of the same old recycled faces.
