Breaking Free did a good job of bringing to life, an old story that has a lot of relevance and currency. With the Yahoo plus, drug pushing and ‘pant for Benz’ narratives among the millennials, the issue of ritual killing brings another dimension that we like to wish away, but still lives with us. Nigeria is replete with stories of unusual deaths and inexplicable wealth, making a mockery of hard-working people. The earlier we use narratives from movies like this to present life as collection of cause and effects, the better for us.
Okawa Shaznay can sustain a film that lacks a good plot...
Oloibiri is a timely piece. It deserves all the rave and the accolades. Most importantly, Olobiri deserves a safe space in our historical archive; it is not a film that should be forgotten. It serves the right dose of education even for those that insist not to care.
The use of comedy to deliver this story was epic and smart. The producers did a good job telling us a sad story amidst fits of laughter and amusement. The last time I laughed so hard in a movie must be Ayo Makun's 30 Days in Atlanta.
