    i am suprised nobody has mentioned anything about this movie yet. starring femi adebayo,odunlade adekola,muyiwa ademola,fathia balogun,funke akindele,baba wande e.t.c

    it about some beauty paegent where men are supposed to dress, walk and act like women. the winner gets a very atractive package......
    baba wande went to the village to bring his defiant nephew jelili(femi adebayo) who's always acting a fool to lagos and enters him in the competition.
    watch how all these men including sisi kola(odunlade adekola) began the quest in order to emerge as the winner of the competion.
    now when you talk about hilarious, this movie is it. havent laughed this much in a while.nothing serious as per storyline but if you are not an uptight person,you will laugh your lungs out.

    watch out for jelili's sister jemila,she is a good actress. smokin:

    Honestly? The movie/plot was good for me until Jelili made it to Lagos...After he got to Lagos yen, I dunno....I'll let others watch and offer their opinions... :)

    This movie had me ROFLMAO!! As in I was watchin in my room and my sis had to come and find out why I was laughin at d top of my lungs! I don't think the plot makes much sense, but for comedy - 10/10.

    Odunlade was also really good with the female mannerisms and accent!

    Nollywood is best :)

    I totally understand you. But if you remember, as shown in the end, Jelili was dreaming. Jelili is back in the village now so it should be more interesting in part 2. Jelili 1 is a funny movie though.

    Not boycotting.Somehow, i don't enjoy watching these videos on youtube. I try to watch them, but i can't bring myself to do it. Funny. Maybe if they upload in HD quality, i might enjoy watching.

    From Jenifa to Jelili. Sebi the latter merely followed the successful formula of the former. I am not sure if Jelili has scored the same success as Jenifa, though.
