So the BBC made this documentary that sharply divided the Nigerian audience. While some people felt that it was derogatory and small minded and petty and paternalistic and was post colonialistic (sorry, I am tired of blowing grammer! LOL!!)in outlook, others thought it was brilliant film-making. I fall in the latter category actually. Yeah, its washing of dirty linen in public, but it was very well done. The main argument against the series was that it did not reflect all of Lagos. Which is valid. But perhaps trying to make some kind of contrast documentary would have made things look even worse? Who knows? Anyways, the controversy has been raging for a while, and I think it was only replaced by the death of president Yaradua. If you have not seen it, check it out. It will make you grateful for what you have, and perhaps, to be more compassionate towards the working poor. Lord have mercy!!
The rest of it is on youtube. Check it out if you have time.
And yes, it appears that vocal slender’s star is on the rise after appearing in that documentary. Dude is going to perform in London with Basketmouth. I don’t think he will be on that dump much longer. Love a Cinderella story!!
Okay now, enjoy the documentary if you can watch it all, and drop a line to tell me what you think. Yes I know I am late, but not everyone has been following this story abi? Ehen now, if I was to first to break it to you, abeg drop a line and let me know what you think.
