There was this Chinese movie: The Twins. They where pursuing some chinese people and they ran into a Mall/market. They met some fat black women and they asked if they saw anyone, in Chinese language, but those black women responded in Igbo, "Ha no na mgbada ebe ni" grin

There are more than 8 tho.. There's a particular one that also talked about boko haram but it isn't on this list.
Anyways, very soon the country would seize to exist
In bold:
Inevitable.


East Timor from Indonesia;
South Sudan from Sudan;
Eritrea from Ethiopia,
Pakistan from India;
Many countries from Ex-Yugoslavia;

Many countries from Ex-Soviet Union;

Czech and Slovakia from old Czechoslovakia;

etc etc.

It’s only in Nigeria where Fulani-loyal soldiers restructured the country politically, supervised a constitution they imposed on Nigeria, and tell us the garbage of Nigeria indivisible and indissoluble country.

Have you seen where they portray Nigeria in good light?

All is about terrorism, drug trafficking, war, and co.. Which means the country in international communities is known that way...

The murdered priest whose ghost kept on appearing on the island in LOST is Yemi. His bother, a former militant, is Mr. Eko (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje)
samwash:


Well done Bro, you analyze that part finish, I was even trying to recall.
In the crashed aircraft, the holy Mary statues was loaded with heroin, it was even Boone that discovered it. I think the priest name was Bayo a formal militant.

All this post making front page with no economic benefit.

If only nolly wood are serious, we should be robbing shoulder to shoulder with Hollywood.
Does Nollywood have what it takes? Do we have great CGI effects to make quality movies that exceed Hollywood? I think not...

Nice one

You said movies but added series

A TV show "American Gods" had a brief scene where slaves being carried to America from Nigeria were praying to their god Anansi to save them in igbo lang

E dey weird sha because the god dey native to Ghana but the show mixed everything up
Anansa is Efik (Cross River State) mother Goddess.
