This year started with a Bang, one good movie after another. We were treated to loads of good movies from our beloved film industry, Nollywood. By the second quarter of the year, we had intriguing movies like, Wives on Strike and Surulere at the cinemas. By mid-year, we were treated to Kunle Afolayan’s Pan-African film, The CEO. This was followed by the highly emotional Ebola film: 93Days by Steve Gukas.
In October, Comedians AY and Bovi thrilled us with a ‘Trip to Jamaica’ and ‘ It’s Her Day’. Oloibiri staring RMD, Olu Jacobs and many more incredible talents was also screened in October. Though the year is almost over, there are still some movies, we are eager to see.
