Silent Scandal

I very rarely recommend Nigerian movies but I feel quite confident recommending this one. Starring Genevieve Nnaji, Majid Michel and Ebele Osaro, this is a contemporary tale revolving around Jessica Obi, a successful and uptight entrepreneur, her self destructive daughter and the man who brings love, perspective and a whole load of drama to their lives.
The movie is the brain child of a newcomer to the Nollywood production, a woman by the name of Vivian Ejike. I am looking forward to more of what she has to offer. No, she is no Cameron or Scorcese but that is because she is only beginning. It was an enjoyable and engaging film, the technical hitches can be overlooked for the story and for the wardrobe choices...

Happy Holidays

It has been one roller coaster of a year and for one, my blogs have received some of the most neglectful (if that is a word) treatment possible...but still, they remain for me an outlet for my musings, frustrations and experimental conversations.

I wish you a wonderful holiday and hope that I can keep my new year's resolution to reinvent my blog(s)....
