Lessons from Nollywood (Nigerian Movies)

Someone sent this to my mail box - Just for laughs.



1 . Every problem you have is spiritual.



2. In every romance movie, someone must die.



3. It is possible to hit a person without actually touching them!



4. Anyone who gets hit by a car dies immediately.



5. Poisoned food always tastes better.



6. The best way to make money is by visiting a 'Babalawo' / joining a cult sleeping with rich men.



7. One of a pair of twins (identical or not) is born evil.



8. There is never an end to your suffering, except death!



9. With a pastor ... all things are possible.



10. A movie can be titled anything... such as: *The boy is mine, * Face me, I face you *Two rats, *Spanner, *Calculator, *Igala, *Ijele, *Igodo, *Igudu, *Shigidi, *Eran Iya Oshogbo , *Ta longbe mu.



11. A movie has not been made if at least one actor/actress has not- 'shelled', twisted his/her lips to speak wrong phonetics'.



12. You are in love... you want to take your girl out, the best place you take her to is... *Mr. Biggs/Tantalizers: where you'll most probably see an ex while feeding each other. *The beach: where it is imperative that you ride a donkey and carry her playfully. *Or the best: take her to buy some new ugly clothes.



13. An Igbo movie has been made if ... * You visit a 'Babalawo' * A fleet of cars is shown off at regular intervals for a total of half of the movie time. * Kanayo 'O' Kanayo is in the movie. Pete Edochie is also there too! * To get rich it is mandatory you join a cult




14. Gun shots and knock-outs sound the same!



15. Sometimes the title has absolutely nothing to do with the movie and other times, once you read the title and see the poster you know it all!!! (Also the soundtrack gives you a headache because it just narrates the whole story repeatedly - so much for suspense and intrigue!)



16. A love story has not been produced if it does not have one or two of the following actresses- * Stella Damascus * Stephanie Okereke * Genevieve Nnaji * Omotola Jalade * Rita Dominic



17. The police are extremely 'efficient' unlike their counterparts in real life.



18. An actress can wear the same hairdo for more than a year and even in longer flashbacks.



19. It is permissible to wear very dark shades at night!



20. When you are shot in the chest, it really doesn't matter; your head will be bandaged! Same for your legs!



21. When advertising a movie, you really should shout because... people are deaf?



22. When you are extremely poor, you will still be able to afford-a beautiful house, very good furniture, T.V., nice clothes, but you won't be able to send your kids to school.



23. Most especially in Yoruba movies, your gateman must be inefficient and comical. He MUST dress like a freak, be rude to all your visitors and never mind his business.



24. the bad guy always dies or gets caught by none other than the police- LOL!!!!



25. At the end of a three hour movie you’ll be reminded that THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING…WATCH OUT FOR PART 2!



26. No matter the type of movie…TO GOD BE THE GLORY is always at the end

Lmao...don't u just luv Nollywood? Num 18 beats me, i just don't get the idea behind having the same hair style 10yrs later or 5yrs ago.
I still luv 9ja movies though, they crack me up.

loomnie said...

I love this very much!!

Afrobabe said...

LOL..this is dead funny...I recently acquired a taste for nigerian movies and watch them online at videonigeria.com...the part that beats me is when a chic wakes up early in the morning with fully applied makeup.

The music video for “Love the Way You Lie,” Eminem’s song with Rihanna that you’ve probably heard a couple dozen times if you listen to the radio, was released last night, and it’s already got a lot of people up in arms. The video, which features a relationship between Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan, plus Rihanna singing in front of a burning house and Eminem rapping out in a field, tells the story of your average incredibly toxic abusive relationship: Megan and Dominic take turns being violent, then they make out, then the cycle repeats. megan fox naked

I find that it’s easier to disguise yourself when you go to Florida or places like that, because no one is expecting to see a celebrity there. When you throw on a hat and glasses, no one really looks at you twice—because why would you be in Florida? megan fox naked

I guess what I want to know is this: Did anyone see this movie yet, and is she any better than the first Transformers? Also, if anyone has a general movie review to offer, I’d be interested. I’ve heard everything from “does live up to the hype, ” to “a horrible experience of unbearable length.” megan fox naked
