Omoni Oboli’s MOMS AT WAR Gives New ‘Adeniny’ To Nollywood




MOMS AT WAR has simply come to school us all on what a cinema- worthy movie ought to look like! Before anything else, let me give you a synopsis of this great film.



Moms At War tells the story of Olaide and Ebubechukwu, two mothers who would do anything for their children. Omoni Oboli stars as Ebubechukwu, a posh career woman who was born with a silver spoon and expects her only daughter to follow in her footsteps. Funke Akindele stars as Olaide, a self made woman who built herself up from nothing to raise her son and give him the life she did not have. With their children competing for a place in a prestigious scholars program, everything starts to derail as the mothers go head to head to ensure that their individual child wins.



First off, this movie is in a class of its own “patapata”. It isn’t of the same category as all the ‘jagbajantis’ that have been served to us as comedy in recent times. The story is quite unique and very unpredictable, continuity was on point, costuming, very commendable, and the characters were more than believable.


To be honest, MOMS AT WAR was so good, I forgot to look out for errors. I still can’t point out any error. Not one! I am usually quick to pick out errors while watching films, but this one “pass me”.




If at this point, you are still expecting me to share spoilers from this movie, you are on a long thing. MOMS AT WAR is that one movie which gets an A1 from me. Unbelievable right? I could watch this film 100 times and not get bored at all. This has little or nothing to do with the hype around it, but the

MOVIE REVIEW: Seven AND A HALF dates Reminds Us Why Toyin Abraham is The REAL DEAL



Seven AND A HALF dates follows the story of a young hardworking lady, Bisola who is engrossed in her career and finds herself in a seemingly unending quest for love. Her father, Mr Gomez comes to her rescue and inspired by the game of chess, sets Bisola up on ten different dates which he hopes one of them yields a good prospect.





Permit me to give you a very honest and impartial review. Seven AND A HALF dates is basically a feel good movie which stars some of the most creative Nollywood actors.





This satirical work of art is a romantic comedy which sends a very serious message about domestic violence in a refreshing manner. The lead actors ensured we got the message WELL! Sola Sobowale, Mercy Johnson, and Toyin Abraham deserve some accolades for entertaining as well as educating us at the same time. I was particularly impressed by Toyin Abraham’s ‘Biodun, the annoying and talkative shop assistant character’. She was in total control, in her usual dramatic fashion, but this time not exaggerated. She gave off the feeling that she had been listening to critics as regards her role delivery in some movies which were characterized with overacting and exaggerated lines.





I wasn’t impressed with some elements which I must note here. I thought the picture quality of this film could have been better, and costuming, more sophisticated. I just couldn’t comprehend

MOVIE REVIEW: LARA & THE BEAT Leaves Me More Confused than CONFUCIUS




Lara & The Beat is a coming of age movie about the young and beautiful Giwa sisters caught in the centre of a financial scandal with their late parent’s media empire. The sisters are forced out of their privileged bubble and must learn to build a future and savage their family’s name.





Now, shall we discuss this talk of the town, somewhat controversial movie? First off, this movie is not a bad one but simply doesn’t live up to the hype and so much ‘senrenren’ that came with its promotion! The casting wasn’t properly done as I couldn’t comprehend why one of the lead characters, Vector who played ‘Sal’ was struggling so hard to deliver. How did the producers think the audience would react to this? It is simply UNFORGIVEABLE! I honestly think Vector needs acting classes if he intends to make something out of his acting career which is nothing close to his music career. He is undoubtedly one of Nigeria’s most creative rappers, but that doesn’t make him a great actor.





Seyi Shay on the other hand is a good actress; I say this because her “Lara Giwa” role was totally believable! She nailed this role, plus she was funny in a refreshing way. Seyi alongside Somkele Iyamah, Kemi Lala Akindoju, and Chioma Akpotha made up for all the unforgivable offences. The only issue I had with Seyi Shay was her funny accent which went on and off till the end of the movie.




Technically, Lara & The Beat gets my thumbs; sound was great, music on check. But there were too many faults that won’t just allow this film be great. Simply put, the producers of Lara & The Beat let us down! We were expecting so much from them.




As I noted earlier, production wasn’t totally bad, but the story wasn’t extraordinary, and the continuity errors got in the way. Some scenes dragged on for too long, and we (the audience) couldn’t understand what the actors were saying at some point as we really couldn’t fathom

Fashion Meets History: The Story Of Tinubu Square, Lagos






Named in memory of Madam Efunroye Tinubu, a slave trader and business magnate, Tinubu Square, Lagos is one of Nigeria’s many historical landmarks worthy of celebration. It was formerly known as ‘Ita Tinubu’ before it was named Independence Square by leaders of the First Republic.





Madam Efunroye Tinubu, born Efunporoye Osuntinubu was a politically significant figure in Nigerian history due to her role as a powerful female aristocrat and slave trader in pre-colonial and colonial Nigeria. She was a force to reckon with in Lagos during the reigns of Obas Adele, Oluwole, Akitoye, and Dosumu. In Abeokuta, Madam Tinubu traded in arms and supplied Abeokuta with ammunition in the war against Dahomey. Her activities in the war earned her the chieftaincy title of the first Iyalode of Egbaland.









The Tinubu Square which was previously iron fenced with two flowing fountains, flowers, tropical trees, and a life-size statue of Madam Tinubu on a cenotaph now wears a cool new look courtesy of the Lagos State Government headed by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.  The Square currently boasts of features such as neatly painted barricades to prevent easy access to vandals, cenotaphs with different historical figures, the beautifully crafted
