I quite agree, TI OLUWA N'ILE slaps SAWOROIDE in the face, but I'm starting to draw towards IFE OTITO

The more I ponder the above quote, the more inclined I am to agree with it. 'Ti Oluwa N'Ile does indeed best Saworoide.
Btw, I also like the sequel to 'Saworoide', titled 'Agogo Eewo', and especially the songs wey dem sing inside the movie. Like, "Jogbo bi oro tamurege o.. tamurege..... E ba wa be 'joba wa oo.. ijoba wa..... ko s'omi n'ile yio, ko s'onje n'ile yi e ba wa be 'joba.. e ba wa joba waaaaaa". Sorry folks, I did that on impulse:D

Just watched Saworoide. Very well put together, the story flowed well but I kinda didn't like the ending. Alot of things were left unfinished. What happened to Alapaganga's mother? What about Oba Lagidi's 1st wife? what about the old wise man always on the stairs? and the 2 ijoyes that were only looking out for themselves? these are just a few unfinished sceens. I would have loved to see a better finish to oba lagidi also, a gun shot and that was it? He needed to suffer just a little bit more! Anyways just my thoughts.;) All in all it was a nice movie.

If I remember correctly, the "Saworoide" story actually continues in "Agogo Eewo". Think of it as the part 2 of the story. So go and watch it, then tell us what you think.

The movie is not over yet, if you're a very informative Naija child, you'll see that the movie can't give audience the exact ending the audience wants.

This is the way I see the movie; the movie tell the History of Naija in brief, and you'll notice that most of the folks represented in the movie are still in power so they can't be dead in the movie (at least not yet), if you break down most of the characters in that movie you'll be able to relate this actors' role to both dead and alive Naija governments and people in power. The movie is solely the interpretation of Naija past and present. Is a very great movie, you should see Agogo Eewo too, that's like the part 2.
