Layefa: Movie Review; Omoni Oboli's Okafor's Law .





    Omoni Oboli's Okafor's law.
Cast: Richard Mofe Damijo, Omoni Oboli, Blossom Chukwujeku, Toyin Abraham, Gabriel Afolayan, Ufuoma Mac-demort, Ken Erics, Tina Mba and Halima Abubakar.

     Considering the controversy trailing this movie, I was pretty elated when I saw it on DSTV box office. I must say that, I was a little dissappointed to say the least. The movie was obviously overhyped. If I had gone to see it in the cinema, I probably would have requested for a refund. Okafor's Law talks about the "acclaimed " law that states that once a man has had a woman once, he can always have her again despite her current status (scoffs).

Blossom plays "Chuks the terminator " as he's fondly called by his friends, due to his sexual conquests with the ladies. Playboy with a little cash to throw around, Chuks is a firm believer of "Okafor's Law " and will go to any lenght to prove it to his friends, even if it means loosing some shares in the company they co-own.

My first problem with the movie is that it had a way of making the actor's look really bad. They sounded like they were reciting their lines and trying to outdo each other, which made the movie extremely boring, I was trying so hard not to fall asleep. Toyin Abraham was basically counting her words, probably trying not to gbagaun. The highlight in the movie for me was when she finally blurted out in Yoruba with this "English cannot come and kill me" attitude, (Classic).  

On the bright side, the picture quality was really good, there's nothing as annoying as seeing a boring movie with a bad picture quality, that to me is like gambling with my sanity. Trust RMD to always deliver even in a not so great movie. My favourite scene was when he met Chuks, in his words, "I no be street, I be area". That scene kinda gave me some kinda hope and assurance that I didn't completely waste my time and 400naira.(lol).  

In all honesty, I still don't get the message the movie is trying to pass. I personally feel Okafor's Law is a dumb theory and it seemed like Omoni Oboli kinda promoted it in the movie. Not all ladies go back to their vomit Omoni. I still like you though. I hope I didn't bore you guys

Who else has seen Okafor's Law? I haven't, but I've seen some reviews and they're not very flattering. Omoni seems to be more interested in churning out movies every other month than she is in investing in the quality of her work. Tsk tsk. We all love you Omoni and that's why we want to see you do better work.

  1. 'Omoni seems to be more interested in churning out movies every other month than she is in investing in the quality of her work.'

    Isn't this the issue with many of Nigeria's works of art? It's a problem I also have, and time is really short for me to watch a product for secondary reasons or some need to patronize Nigerian works. I wish Nigerian actors, producers, directors and those invested in the sector would spend quality time honing their craft. A good product would always show its quality through all times. Chrisyinks

    1. Can't be certain per your question. But, I reckon an interesting insight to understanding your question could be gleaned from the converse of Okafor's law: 'Can a lady who has slept with a guy always have him much later on?' Chrisyinks

    2. Why won't you say is real? So you want to tell me that you can sleep with with every woman you've had before irrespective of their present status? I actually knew you were gonna say this. Layefa

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
