The pictures are not really as 'afican' or 'Nigerian' as I expected them to be.

It's majorly 'Agayu' that looks close to an African deity here. Others are just models rocking outfits or lack of them and smoke coming out of wherever.

Nice job but doesn't nail what it was going for. The Obatala looks scary sha.

He did not nail it at all.

First, her rid of the gauntlets. Seriously, what the hell?

Second, give them a more Yoruba look. These look . . . . Zulu-ish. Those plain clothes are annoying. Give us some aso ofi mehn! grin

Also . . . a bit more emotion. It felt like I was looking at dolls. I couldn't find some hidden anger in Ogun, fury in sango, cunningness in esu. Or even a deep wiseness in obatala. Even the ibeji did not have that creepy sense of playfulness you would expect a Godkids to have.

I give this a . . . . 6/10

Because the visual effects are stunning!! cheesy cheesy
