    This is very cool. I'm glad to see black people taking the film industry into their own hands.

    I would hold my praise regading this.
    There are literaly thousands of these films, good dramas, soap operas and comedy but not one film that I can show to children at church, or the Block association about Nigerias great history and civilzations, or anything out of all those films about their revolution againt the British.
