On some days, I open streaming apps with complete confidence knowing exactly what to watch, while on other days, the visual overload causes me to immediately close them.
This post is for you if, as a movie enthusiast, you have had such experience.
Ahead, you will find seven recent, low budget but interesting Nollywood YouTube movies that have helped me get out of that rut.
A fatal accident victim, I.K Ogbonna, comes away with selective amnesia which only goes back two years- which is how long he had married Bimbo Ademoye a.k.a his former employee.
It’s drama after drama for Ms. New Wife in Never Again which is currently streaming on Uduak Isong TV on YT.
Ruth Kadiri, Crazy Matilda, is a housewife that’s made it her life’s mission to frustrate her husband and if there’s one thing she had in abundance asides her ment, it is audacity. In fact, for Matilda in Crazy Matilda, audacity with a sprinkle of gumption is her Sunday afternoon special.
Avoid missing it if you are up for a chuckle or two.
Question: What do you call the buddy who lends a hand for a moment, seems modest when you express your gratitude, then shames you when you don’t revere the ground she treads on?
Uhm, yeah. You will need your fake psychology degree for this one.
Blessing Jessica Obasi is your patient, the buddy and her unlucky friends who are constantly on the tail end of her “magnanimity and ment” are Bimbo Ademoye and Bolaji Ogunmola.
For Mercy’s Sake
People need to be allowed to grieve their way, they say and that’s the explanation Stan Nze finds himself offering whenever people opine that it is weird that he still lives with his mother-in-law years after his wife’s demise.
Were they right? Is MIL dearest love-bombing his son-in-law or were the opiners just reaching?
The answers are in For Mercy’s Sake.
Going on 35
Dark secrets. Assumptions. Guilt. These three emotions have been left to fester, and four sisters may become estranged because of it.
Drama unfolds. Souls are bared . Lessons are learned as Blessing Jessica Obasi, Paschaline Alex, Ebenezer Eno, and Chy Nwakanma who play the four orphaned siblings in Going on 35 navigate their family baggage.
Life throws (Chukwudozie) Daniel Etim a six as it becomes apparent that his mother who has been trying to set him straight has been diagnosed with a terminal disease. Things get worse when it becomes evident that failure to do as his mother wishes means he won’t be handed the reins to the family business.
Watch Daniel Etim Effiong in Through the Vale as he switches from a player to villain in the quest for “what’s rightfully his”.
A few weeks to “I DO”, a genotype mishap halts a fairy tale romance at its prime. Things turn ugly. Then uglier.
If you are not afraid to get in your feels, because Stan Nze was really in his beau-est element ( superlative of beau) in this one-even when things were falling apart- then, Broken Rainbow is your next interesting watch.
PS: Beau-est is not an English word yet. It’s just my inner Wole Soyinka rearing its head again.
Let me know the ones you beat me to and what you think of the ones you pick from my list. Also, keep an eye out for my suggestions for your other streaming services. Mua!
