No, i'm not...how about you, are you sleepy?
Accra is specifically mentioned
6 pages? Wow! Where was I? I missed these whole thing! lol.
names, names names.
What is in a name btw?
I've always wondered though....with all the atheist, all the clamor to take God out of society, to shrivel religion to just a 'Belief Manual' [optional to purchase or read].
With all the Illuminati, the satan worshippers, atheists, witchcraft, black magic, voodoo, etc being very daring these days.....WHY HAVE I NOT SEEN NAMES LIKE:
-Idi Amin etc...
Seriously, why are people not carefreely [sp] bearing some of the names above? WHY?
Or have you seen any Mr. Smith Satan? Or Mrs. Lucy Lucifer? :D
Non belief in god does not equal believing in the devil of subscribing to evil ideologies.
I've heard of someone called Satan...he was a former Mayor in Germany...His name is Erwin Teufel...Teufel is the German word for Satan...LMAO
Mba, NOT the other version, I mean S A T A N spelled out that way
i haven't seen or heard of the English form of it but they both mean the same thing...
BTW, i heard Ini Edo's real name means 'darkness' in Efik that's why she chose not to use it...LOL...She do well...LOL
People should be careful what names they give to their children...Na woah!
No. Teufel means "devil" not satan. No, satan and devil are not one and the same entity, even if they get mixed up by their use. And Teufel is a common name in the german speaking nations. There are streets named with that word too.
O ga o. After watching the first few minutes of the movie I had to turn it off. I want to enjoy a movie without having to see someone's but crack or any other part if IT IS NOT NECESSARY. I had to come here to see what you guys have to say about the movie so I could decide on whether to continue watching it or not. Iya Laje's feelings about it just made me decide not to watch it. I trust your judgement Iya Laje...longest time.
I had to respond because of all the comments I read about the name issue. Please we really need to stick with names such as Lizzy and forget names such as Titania or whatever it was. That particular name was a total distraction for me. it would have been understandable if it was Tatiana for pronunciation sake. All the comments about crossing over, colonization, sales, and what not does not make any sense to me. In American movies, if a character is from Kenya, the name would be Mwidau not Alfredo. I don't want to believe American movies give names to cross over anywhere...then I might be wrong. As a matter of fact, we watched a lot on Chinese movies while growing up in Naija and I don't believe I heard a Cleopatra while watching....hey, I might be wrong too. I don't rule out using english names totally but can we mix it up. If there is a Peter, there is absolutely nothing wrong with Tutu as a name for the other character. Why does all the characters have to bear english names. It does not matter if everyone in a certain village in Ghana has an english name, a name such as Achempong (sp?) can make a little difference while watching an African movie.
Vince, nothing do you jor, I was put off by that stupid name too 'cos I kept wondering if they meant Tatiana. I guess not.
Sorry Vince, satan is the devil and devil is satan. Sometimes demons are referred to as devils merely because they have the attributes of the devil which is satan.
Thank you jare! At last somebody gets me. Hope all is well
