A very good movie with a good lesson!
14 September 2019 | by amidujusu-03969See all my reviews

This is movie is about a coming of age comedy/drama about a young boy who wants to fix things with his hands rather sit behind a cubicle. In a broader sense, I think this is just celebrating how things are done in Africa, and how kids learn to be humble.

I was really supprise by the cinimatography, story, and acting. I used to watch a lot movies from Nigeria but soon realize that the quality sometimes just isn't there for me but this movie just reminded that I need to explore more.
