    "Jejeloye" was good too...very funny. I wonder if there are real life couplese like the Jejeloyes. I do think that the end was a bit rushed.

    LOL...the end was somehow cause it felt like there was no closure and the guy got away with stuff even though he claims to have his reasons abi. The wow part for me was her healing...that's the part that made it great! Have you seen Jejeloye, Ife Ojiji and Oko obinrin? I think Jejeloye was a bit extreme sha.

    Movie was terribly written, it went on without a real explanation so it was hard to keep watching and then the end made ZERO sense, made me mad I sat through the confusion, gave them the benefit of the doubt and then, that??

    Ojurito is a complete mess of a movie in my own opinion. The movie is not making sense at all.
    The ending is horrendous! Personally, I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone, it is really a waste of time.

    Once Debe....I expect Odunlade to turn movies as such down. He has potential and he should be seen in more challenging roles.

    I need to take a break from yoruba movies in general and yes I decided to watch Gucci girls. The story is utter rubbish. The ending is not making sense one bit, except there is a part two which was not indicated. My goodness, the weaves, the make up. I do not think that these ladies need to be acting roles like this. It is rather pathetic to me! And please Doris Simeon, if you see this, STOP ACCEPTING ROLES LIKE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!! You're so much better of in classy, challenging productions. Biko, whatever it is that is going on, turn roles like this down. Even though you didnt act as a asewo, all the same it was rather sad seeing you in a movie like this.

    I rest o, abeg.

    Okay i requote myself.

    I mixed up Ojurito with Ohun Agbara.
    Now Ohun Agbara is uttermost rubbish. Ojurito, is just long very long and a lot of back and forth. Actually tiring.
    I still wouldn't recommend either of these movies.

    Ok o, I rest, abeg.

    Jejeloye is not a bad movie at all.

    Gucci Girls is also not a bad movie only that I don't like how Yoruba writers always use supernatural power to bail out their movie endings...Pastor would se this, imam would see that, babalowo would use white cloth to show flasbacks...I mean like...this is 2012!

    Seen Jejeloye.
    I must say it is entertaining BUT the movie is a cheap remake of Modupe Temi, just that they added some maggie to the stew.
    Yes I may sound harsh but seriously, Yoruba movies need to step it up. There should be more of challenging roles and more of challenging movies in general.
    As a consumer of yoruba or let me say nollywood movies, it's not too much asked of to give me something fresh and not some recycled or remixed. Just saying.....

    Anyway, for the entertainment factor of it, yeah we can say Jejeloye is recommendable.
