American Driver (The Review)

#Americandriver, is a 2017 comedy movie directed by Moses Inwang, featuring the likes of acting new comer – Evan King, who plays the main character (Jack Curry), Jim Iyke, Anita Chris, McPc, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Ayodeji Makun and a host of others. The 120 minutes movie, released under the stables of Sneeze Film, tells a story of a “crazy behaving” driver –  Jack.

His responsibility was to chauffeur Nigerian celebrities from an American airport to the venue of the annual GIAMA AWARDS in Texas, United States of America.

His crazy behaviour and how he responds to issues is what the movie centres around. The movie is funny and would definitely fetch a good laugh even to a dying and depressed man but one could easily notice that the A-list actors were not pushing themselves to make an award winning impact.

Compared to #30daysinatlanta, #Mrbean #weddingparty and other comedy movies I have seen, this isn’t very hilarious but definitely didn’t pack drab scenes at all, all its scene would either get you rolling with laughter or tuck a smile on your stubborn chin.

Much as I know the extreme effort that goes into casting, I think the movie had misplaced characters, for instance, A.Y and JIM IYKE’S role would have been better switched, though Jim came with his A-game, it was easy to tell that he was stiff to that role. An A.Y and Jack combination would have left us laughing out of spontaneous jokes by them both, which would definitely have made the movie more comical. 

Also, why would the movie take us through an interview of Jack and Sunny, when it would centre only around one of them, though the interviewing part was funny but it portrayed a competition between them both, which wasn’t the case.

In conclusion, the visuals, sound, camera angle, cast and #kerewu (in Jenifer’s voice) were on point and they really had that pinning effect. The movie is a very good choice to be seen at a cinema anytime but be mindful to not have over fed before going in, lest you throw up out of laughing yourself to scorn.

I sincerely think there is more to be done in the next #MosesInwang movie as he definitely should continue to aim higher now.

What every man should know how to do.

I would be fooling you if i tell you i have all the tricks in a man’s dictionary but trust me there are basic things every male individual should know how to do. It may surprise you to know that one of such is how to open a drink with the tooth….

Hun! yeah, relax. This is very useful especially during those outings one goes with friends or family, most times we are so excited packing for such, we do forget the openers, it would be very shameful if you have to pass your drink, like the ladies, to the sole guy who can. in order to avoid such, kindly practice “teeth opening” drinks in your privacy….. NOTE; this isn’t medically approved but for real, what is?

The second and major one is knotting of neck tie.

Yeah, you didn’t see that coming but, whether we (guys) like it or not, we just may be forced to put this symbol of “gentlemaness” once or twice in our lives, especially when we set out to impress, could be a new boss, babe or even network. I get to help guys knot their tie and i psychologically do see how they respect me for knowing how to do such an “intriguing” act, to some, i am performing magic while to the ladies, i’m the man… smiles.

Nigeria and Music

Nigeria is a country with more musicians than music. literally speaking, cos you hear some songs and you just want to weep for the singer or maybe, the noise maker.

Most musicians depend sorely on beats, which are always well produced by talented beat makers like Don Jazzy, Young John, Masterkraft, to mention a few, the prolific ones who are lyrically okay are just very few as they also tend to waive to beat demand, known as commercials.

I wouldnt go the miles n begin to mention musicians i think are good enough cos we all have our vhoice but i would always duff my hat for the following Falz, Simi, Brymo, Chyn, Dipo, Tiwa savage, Bez, Poe and several others.

While i have just expressed myself, yall can watch an upcoming artist express himself in the link below;

WHY DO STUDENTS FAIL ICT

ICT (information and communication technology) is the revolutionary of our generation. it has changed the way we relate with one another and also the way millionaires are made. a deep, disciplined and dedicated act with ICT can just turn one into the latest millionaire in town.

WAEC Syllabus

unfortunately, most students still find it difficult to pass this subject. only few who register the subject for WAEC do have the C and above grade. the reasons, as observed, are as follows;

  1. Lack of discipline on the students part– most students want to have fun as soon as they touch a computer set, any instructions concerning power point, java, excel or word is seen as torment by the students.
  2. Poor or lack of facility – most schools in Africa that claims to have ICT facility might have a ratio of 1 computer to 15 students, how then do you want all of them to learn when the time is also limited.
  3. Electricity – its no news that so many countries in West Africa do not have stable electricity therefore when they have practical classes, there just might not be power to power the computer system.
  4. Lack of discipline on teachers part – talking from experience, facilities might be available but due to fear that students might damage this systems when used, the teachers might prefer to focus on only the theoretical topics like binary without ever touching the practical ones. this in the long run, kills a students motivation to learn ICT.

I am certain that if all this are corrected, then ICT will be enjoyed like burger among West Africa students.

African culture and its gradual extinction.

Africa is blessed. one of the ways to know this is to observe closely the rich and colourful practices of her culture, from the Igbos, Efik, Yoruba, Tiv, Kanuris, Fulani, Idoma to the zulu, Kikuyu and Tumbuka to mention a few.

Each culture is unique in the styling of their clothing, combination of colours, festivals, language and rulership but presently, the African man does not seem to want a piece of his culture anymore.

It all started when the colonial masters came, saw and conquered the gods, which the people had always held in high hopes and esteem, with the help of those who had been culturally maligned.

From that moment, any other language except the colonial masters own became VERNACULAR, cultural worship became PEGANISM and till this day the traditional wedding is not even recognized by the most religious house, that seem to be led by super human that constantly commune with the Supreme Being.

Africa has lost so much, although gained as well, my fear is just the constant downing of our own way of life. the only inspiration for us keeping our culture is when we see these foreigners come to observe how we do them and that should not be.

However, the extinction blame should not be laid sorely on them as our culture has to be adjusted to suit the 21st century and beyond, issues of human sacrifice should be hushed lest we constantly get condemned.
