I’ve had a very busy day, and that’s because weekends are family time. There are group chores to do, songs to sing to my baby, gists to exchange with my husband, and movies.
Yes, movies. I enjoy simple movies without any serious activities and gunshots and killings and all of those themes that you young people enjoy these days ( lol jk). Seriously though, you would catch me watching comedies and entertaining movies that would make me laugh intentionally or non intentionally. This is why I always watch Nigerian movies; many people can say that it is non intellectual and low budgeted and all of those funny descriptions but as for me? I will keep watching them because they truly make me laugh and I enjoy seeing relatable characters.
I am known to recruit people to my corner regarding Yoruba movies and Nigerian movies in general, so if we are close in a way, I have most likely encouraged you to try at least one. I’m sorry, think about it as me being a patriotic Nigerian. Haha.
It’s weekend, so it’s a great time to relax and see a movie. I understand that some people aren’t ‘movie people’ but then, trying new things could be really soothing. You need to take your mind off work, or some other situations that are getting you all worked up. And I’m suggesting seeing a very simple and funny movie for that. Not a movie that would make you start thinking deep and crying and all of that emotional stuff.
Today, we will be seeing a Nigerian movie. Please, don’t crucify me. Just indulge me for today and consider it as you being an obedient adherent of The November happiness challenge by Omotolani. It can be any movie of choice, but make it Nigerian, please. I suggest ‘Your Excellency’ on Netflix if you haven’t already seen it. It is a movie which has Funke Akindele and Akin Lewis as the lead acts, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Please see it with the readiness to have a great time, and I promise you’d come back to me with great feedback. This isn’t a paid ad, this is me trying to plug you to a funny movie I saw, because we are cool like that. If you have seen it already, you can try other funny ones like ‘Quam money’, ‘Elevator Baby’ and others.
Get a cup of juice and popcorn if you have some, and turn your home into a mini theatre. You can also do it on your phone, if that is more convenient for you.
Look at this picture of me having the best time of my life earlier this year.
I’ll be back. OBA
