A must watch
5 April 2021 | by nadinenguSee all my reviews

Let me go ahead & say this is my first ever IMDb review but it had to be done.

I've watched many African movies in my lifetime & this is the first time in a LONG long time I've been impressed by any movie. It had many valuable lessons and touched on topics like, sacrifice in love, girls education , betrayal , friendship, etc. The main character played by Faith Fidel brought me to tears.

I thoroughly enjoyed everything about the movie, the soundtrack was great.

Riveting !

I wish everyone who worked on this project continued success.

Cameroon O'bosso! Cameroon 🇨🇲 oye.
