The sequel to “The Wedding Party” is titled “The Wedding Party: Destination Dubai.”
It
opens in the cinemas on Friday, December 15, and Pulse Movies has put
together seven things to like and hate about the sequel, which is
directed by Niyi Akinmolayan.

1. No Character outshines the other

The original movie relied heavily on Sola Sobowale as Tinuade, who delivered at every given opportunity. It can be argued that the first movie belonged to her.
However,
this sequel belongs to no one as no character outshines the other.
Akinmolayn simply brought a cast together to tell a simple and warm
story. 
You would have to decide if this works or doesn’t work for you.

2. The couple – Nonso and Deidre

 

Nonso and Deidre’s love story works because we get to follow their journey and growth.
Their problems seem real, offering several heartwarming moments and busting with relatability.
Also,
Nwigwe and Down bring to their roles a real sense of sweetness and
vulnerability that shows how uneasy it can be to make certain life
decisions.

3. Tinuade Coker

 

 

The character
Tinuade Coker played by Sola Sobowale is an integral part of “The
Wedding Party.” After all, she was the brightest spot in the original
movie.
In the sequel, she starts off trying too hard with the jokes, and is too involved for a wedding that isn’t even hers to plan.
Nevertheless, she still stays retains the energy that probably made her your favourite character in 2016.

4. An Oyinbo that can act

Michael de Pinna as Geoffrey Winston is surprisingly a pleasant and hilarious character. His funniness comes in different forms: sarcasm, wittiness and ignorance.

5. Redundant characters

 

 

From the trailer, we already knew this sequel won’t be lacking redundant characters.
From Zainab Balogun as Wonu to Wofia Fada to Saka as the village chief to AY Makun as the MC,  quite a number of characters should have been left behind in the original film.

6. The music

The picture is boosted by a perfect selection of songs such as Timi Dakolo’s “Medicine,” Seyi Shay’s “YOLO,’ Reekado Banks’ ‘Ladies and Gentlemen” and Kiss Daniels “Sofa.”

7. Unnecessary scenes

 

Of course, with redundant characters comes irrelevant scenes, and “The Wedding Party 2” has quite a number of them.
Let’s not also forget the continuity error and that anticlimax!
“The Wedding Party 2” is currently showing in cinemas.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

on

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
, who is London, wants us to patronise made in Nigeria!
