The Movie- House of Gold

2

So we brought you the premiere of House of Gold in pictures, now is the time for the actual review.

Over the long weekend (too bad that’s over ūüôĀ ) my friend convinced me to go to the movies to see a Ghanian/Nigerian film and I was really reluctant because I have a strict policy of not going to the cinema to watch a “naija movie” (yes I’m unpatriotic of ¬†the nollywood mediocre syndrome) but lo and behold….I was really really impressed by the plot and the performance of the actors.

House of Gold is a combination of comedy and family drama, it was particularly captivating because as Africans…and more especially Nigerians, we could really relate to it. I give two thumbs up to Majid Michael,¬†Yvonne Nelson, Omawunmi Megbele, ¬†and the fellow who acted the driver….y’all had me in stitches throughout the movie. Even Ice Prince didn’t do so badly.

This is the second Nigerian/Ghanian movie I’m seeing that has made me absolutely proud to West African! So here’s to House of Gold as it joins the ranks of Nse Etim’s Mr & Mrs in my books!
