|Three Wrong Things Nigerian Movies Will Teach You. by belovedsamex(m): 6:01pm On Oct 07, 2014|
Here are some of the few things you would probably learn from nigerian movies apart from the fact that you can legally ellope with your beloved girl friend and her once naive parents would later come and beg you to forgive them and marry their daughter. The sad thing is that these principles are wrong. I said they are wrong becos things dont work that way in our modern world. Maybe they worked in the sixties, but no more now. Let's take a look at them:
1. THE RICH AND THE POOR CAN ASSOCIATE TOGETHER IN MARRIAGE UNION BY LOVE: You may have seen those movies where the girl or the boy (e.g INI EDO or MIKE EZURONYE) is the child of the Governor and is dying in love with a guy/girl (e.g D. ELLIOT or MERCY JOHNSON) from a humble background who didnt even attend a university education, that's what i'm talking about. The last time i learn't about such thing was in the SHAKESPARRIAN NOVELS. There is no such thing as that. The marked gap between the rich and the poor in our modern society is so wide that the so called rich considers poverty (anyting below their acceptable standard of living) as a contagious lethal sickness they cannot mess around with. There are many reasons why this point is valid.
2. WHEN YOU ARE SORROWING, YOU WIN THE COMPASSION OF PEOPLE, EVEN THE RICH: lie lie!
Have you seen those movies where one boy (CLEM OHAMEZE) lost his parents and he is the only child, his uncle has taken everything from him and drove him out of his father's house. Then he comes to the streets of ONITSHA to beg sorrowfully and people (YOU AND ME) are dashing him very fat sums of money. And by night he would just enter the GRA in one of estates and knoks on the gate of one wealthy man (PETE EDOCHIE) and then his wife (NGOZI EZEONU) comes out to check whether the gateman is still in his watch, suddenly she notices the peson knocking, and after a brief explanation of a sad story, she expresses some emotional touch of the story and decides to take him in to live with her. Pls if you knock on somebody's gate at odd times in the city they will lock you up. The truth is, people do not subscribe to sorrow, people subscribe to braveness. If they want to help you, they want to see that you have that gots in you to succeed. People that carry sorrow with them don't have gots. They are bedeviled by the feeling of the ugly circumstances surrounding them. Some children, after watching all these nigerian movies, would run away from their poor homes into the streets, looking for one rich man or the other that would take them in. that is a wrong ideology.
3. i will write this one tomorrow, my battery is down now. pls feel free to add yours or comment on the ones above. tank you.

Now here is the continuation to the points:
The last point i want to make concerning the WRONG ideas taught by most Nigerian movies is actually a very disapointing one of all. Here it is:
3. WHEN A POOR MAN IS OPRESSED BY THE RICH AND GOD SEES THE SORROW OF THE POOR, HE WILL MAKE THE POOR TO BECOME RICHER THAN THE RICH.
You must have seen those movies where a rich man (NKEM OWOH) opresses his poor neighbour (RITA EDOCHIE) who then cries all day for God to see her tears. And then later, her son (CLEM OHAMEZE) who managed to get to the city suddenly becomes wealthy and comes back to the village to revenge for the opression of his mother.
Well, things like this could happen, but not with the idea that it was because of the sorrow of the poor woman that God made her son rich in order to punish the opressor.
The truths are these:
i. God will punish every wicked person, whether their victims sorrow or not. the idea that God will punish the wicked when you show how much you have been opressed by sorrowing is a big lie
ii. God will not make you rich because you are opressed by the rich or because you have sorrowed too much. there are alredy laid down principles in life by which people can become rich. If you walk in those principles, you will become rich. if you don't, no matter how much you sorrow, you will die as poor as you have been. isn't it the truth, most times people who opress others with their riches keep getting richer and richer than the people they opress, because those they opress relaxed, hoping that one day God will just do a miracle to turn the table around.
iii. The sad truth is that most times justice will not come the time we expected it. You may be expecting that one day God will just kill that wicked man that has opressed a lot of people with sicknesses, but that's not the way it works. The wiked man may even outlive his victims...and when the judgement will come upon him will be when those who expected it will not be there to witness it.
. In a nutshell, God's intervention in our situations is most times not the way we want it to happen and not the time in which we desired it. He will not change your situation because you have sorrowed too much. It is what you do in response for the future that God uses to work in your situation.
So never be fooled by Nigerian movies. If you feel that the rich around you oppress you, then work hard and live positively with the vision of making your own money, God will bless you through your effort...because that's what is in your hand.
