Peju brought Funke to Lagos, who wanted to take peju husband from and was sent back to the village where she lived with her step mother and became the number one fashion designer while peju lived with her husband and was blessed two sons.
There is no different here of how Hollywood’s portray often lack depth thought. The Hollywood idea of village girl weaving their hair and tiring wrapper is no different in this movie. There is no outstanding role played by any actor all actor ready their lines like how they did in the other movie, the acting in the movie was not really outstanding.
The director who in person is Rukky sanda was not really good to other popular directors in the Hollywood industries. Why rush to direct a movie when you are still coming up as an actress. Her directing skill was not really good.
In the movie in her shoes there is some part of the movie that is not well acted by some cast. The story line of the movie is no different to other movie. It is the same story line that is very popular in the Hollywood industry.
