SHOULD YOU REALLY SEE KUNLE AFOLAYAN' S MOVIE, OCTOBER 1?

I know this movie premiered a while ago and some of you have seen it but I also bet some of you have not! So I am not the chief last carrier…wear your uniform well with pride. I wanted to see the movie since it premiered but the right time never presented itself... 

I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical especially since I wasn’t really impressed with Figurine however, I have changed the way I see Kunle Afolayan now, he actually did well as director/producer and actor, even though his acting is not quite there yet sha. Nod if you agree.

The movie tells a story of Danladi Waziri (Sadiq Daba), a police officer from Northern Nigeria who is posted to a remote town of Akote in Western Nigeria to investigate the frequent female murder cases in the community, and have the mystery solved before the Nigerian flag is raised on October 1, Nigeria's Independence Day. That’s a summary and If I share more than that this review would be a spoiler. 

Halfway into the movie you could tell who the serial killer was but that did not take away from the suspense because I kept trying to figure out how the known killer was going to be caught and more importantly why was he killing?! We only hear about serial killers in Western stories abi? 

I thought the entire cast fit and interpreted their roles perfectly…it was so refreshing to see Kanayo O. Kanayo…everybody hailed him when he came on. My favourite characters were Sadiq Daba as Inspector Danladi Waziri, Demola Adedoyin as Aderopo (I’ve never seen any movie he’s done but he played his role soooooo well). Kayode Olaiya as Inspector Afonja was totally hilarious, the man is a comic but you wouldn’t miss his underlying message. A lot of people criticized Deola Sageo’s scene as totally unnecessary but to be honest with you, I didn’t even notice it. LOL. Did I forget that Femi Adebayo was also in there…he’s so chubby now, gbogbo  bigz boy! 

Cinematography was on point! Compared to the typical Nollywood movie, there were not a lot of unnecessary scenes: I’m so glad the Nigerian Movie industry is growing…and we are telling our own stories. Costume and set design, on point! Mwah! Cast on point! Double mwah! Storyline on point!! 

One of my favourite scenes was when Danladi Waziri (after suspending Afonja) came to visit him in the house and met him eating, he was invited and he immediately jumped in to eat, Afonja’s wife whispered in Yoruba something like “is this not the oga that suspended you? If he came here for more destruction then bone will hook his throat as he is swallowing’ and then Afonja turned to Danladi and said, my wife says “hope you like the food”…LOL. 

At the end of the movie I had so many questions but one stood out, who was I asking? Bobo! I asked, is this movie fact or fiction? I have to applaud Kunle Afolayan for weaving both so seamlessly that it is almost difficult to tell the difference. I think this is his best production yet!

So should you see October 1st? Definitely. I enjoyed it!Have a fabulous weekend!

JAMIE OLIVER MURDERED JOLLOF RICE! #JollofGate

Source : Jamie Oliver.com
Ha ha ha....I was minding my business jejely on twitter when a picture floated across my TL...Ki le leyi, I asked myself. It looked like a plate of food sha, make I click. Jamie made Jollof...this should be good! I clicked on the link and it took me to his website where the recipe was...I read it and I'm glad he said this was HIS version of Jollof rice, but I don't think many people really got that memo-they were really upset! I'm looking at the picture and shaking my head, Jollof Rice does not really need all that senrenren on it...see lime, and big balls of pepper. Nah, I would not readily call that jollof as I know it.

DEAR SISI: HIS MOM DOES NOT LIKE ME, SO I BROKE UP WITH HIM, DID I MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION? #LDR

“ Good morning! I'm an ardent reader of your blog since your 2013 birthday. Can I also use this opportunity to wish you and bobo a happy married life and blessings in your home 
Now to the main gist. I am a yoruba girl, i've been dating this yoruba guy for five years. Though we are not from the same state, his mum is from my state but we are not from the same village. And oh I forgot to add that all those five years we dated, it's been a long distance relationship, because I travelled to the UK to study for four out of the 5 years ‎and when I got back we didn't live in the same town, we only visit each other. We were fine, actually very fine. I knew he loved me even though we fight sometimes (which I think is normal in all relationships), and he apologises first regardless who started the fight, we were happy. Apart from that, he is my bestfriend, the one I told everything and the one I call first when I need to talk to someone or just cry lol. So just a week ago he called me to say there was trouble. Apparently he's been telling his mum about me and his intention to marry me. She had always said no but he thought she was joking, or she was just in a bad mood.

AUTHENTIC URHOBO UKODO RECIPE - YAM/PLANTAIN PEPPER SOUP POTTAGE

Small small I am beginning to unleash my Niger-Delta Recipes...I don't know why it took this long. Today's recipe is called Ukodo in Delta : simply yam and unripe plantain pepper soup porridge. Sometimes I add the unripe plantain, other times I don't. It's delicious either way! I 100% percent believe that the most original pepper soup recipe and ingredients come from Delta, if you've not tasted any from that area then  you should. Authentic 100% ! Una know say I be areaaaaaaaaa!

MONDAY CHIT-CHAT : BIRTHDAY BABE!


Good Morning my beautiful blog family! How are you doing??? I’m very very well! Yesterday was my birthday! Wooooohoooo! I’ve been making noise about this birthday sinceeeee and confused about what I was going to do: I had so many ideas but in the end, I believe God’s will prevailed! LOL. Before I continue…for those who are new, the 1st to leave a meaningful comment wins airtime recharge from me! 

WITH 30MB DATA LEFT ON MY MOBILE DEVICE I’M STILL KING OF PALMCHAT

To stay social online, you need Internet data; the less data you have, the less ‘social’ and interactive you get. Take this instance, you just requested for your internet data statement and…beep! Your automated statement reads: Bundle: 250Mb left, you’ll probably go ‘yippee’ and step up on your selfie sharing and downloading mode.

How about if your data balance read: 50MB left…oops! Something a little less ‘social’ stirs in your bowel and that’s called survival instincts!

Busted!

Now you wish social platforms don’t consume your data all-too-quickly. You are probably not on Palmchat-yep, you’re not a Palmchatter. On the Palmchat platform you will chat more for less…I mean 30MB data on your mobile device is just good enough. 

Palmchat voice messaging is the trick

BLOGBETTER: HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU CHARGE AS A BLOGGER?

Hello my fellow bloggers! Ah, I’m back to being a good girl and today I want us to share with each other. I don’t have all the answers, just sharing my opinion. I was asked a few days ago “How much should bloggers charge for ads”? and frankly that was not the first time I was being asked that question but before I give my own opinion on how much bloggers should charge I would like to answer other questions:

ON REPEAT: JESU N'ABBA -BENITA OKOJIE

I think I'll add a new segment to my blog...(ON REPEAT) I love music and when I love a song it's on repeat till the artist starts coughing wherever they are. That's what's going on with me and this Benita's song right now. The song was released about 4 months ago so I'm late to the party but woreva!

WHY THERE WAS NO MONDAY CHIT-CHAT

Seriously I was just going to do Ogboju and not post anything, no chit-chat, no explanation and just pretend nothing happened but since yesterday I've been getting so many messages, "Sisi where is Monday Chit-Chat?". Oh dear....this ogboju will not werk. Plus I've been having weird dreams. LOL

Ehn, see, it's nothing serious. It's just that I was cooking and eating and cooking and eating since friday and before I knew it was Monday morning and I screamed at Bobo "Yomi, no Monday Chit-Chat!...LOL. O tun mo si, I was a lazy blogger all weekend, I went nowhere, did nothing and I did not have the liver to come and tell you that... I'm sorry *stares at feet*

We all have those weekends abi? But this weekend there'll be activity because I have plans *rubs hands together in glee*....and it's my birthday this sunday (19th)! You see I was asking what I should do that weekend because its a big birthday...still nothing comes to mind so I think I'll just make sure I do no house work that day and go out for lunch/dinner (Bobo take note). I expect cake too! I did want to visit an orphanage...I will but maybe not on that day.

I'm expecting presents from you, you want my address? You can make up for not sending me wedding presents. LOL. Last year I think I wrote a birthday wishlist. I got almost everything on that list except the Range Rover Sport, Baba God do it for your daughter! See last year's list HERE  .  So in the absence of a wishlist I'll request for prayers...I still need prayers. A simple "God Bless Sisi Yemmie and Bobo Yomi" will do a lot in my life because you know God's blessings are not limited to Range Rovers....Halleluyah???

Do I share a birthday with any of my readers or your sister/brother/dad/mom/boyfriend/child? How was your weekend? LOL (igbayi laaro)
