In one monologue frame, he asks, “What is a Nigerian movie without witchcraft?” and even more whimsically, “What is the Ifunanya of the movie?” and “What is the Onyinye of the movie?”
Eric Omondi, once ranked alongside Trevor Noah and Basketmouth as one the funniest comedians in Africa, launches into pastiches and tropes associated with Nollywood. The film demonstrates the perception of the Nigerian movie industry by its followers in the Eastern African country. Meant as a slapstick commentary on Nollywood, one cannot ignore it reinforcement of the stereotypes that non-Nigerians take as the daily reality of the Nigerian society. (No Eric, in real life, people do not turn into chicken, or yam, or palm oil, or whatever!)
For his craft, Eric deserves all the credits for impressive investments in casts and scenes and believability.
He may currently be enjoying his fame and creativity. We sure know who may not be getting a Nigerian visa soon. 🙂
