Lionheart Review: A Family-Centered & Real Nigerian Movie

Published

on

Genevieve Nnaji’s latest project cum Netflix Original movie, Lionheart, took the industry by storm but still had a lot to prove in terms of quality and answering the question of “why did Netflix choose to buy this movie?”.

The movie was faced with many challenges as it didn’t screen in many cinemas nationwide, however, the movie being on Netflix can make up for the low box-office gross that it may end up having.
Lionheart is a movie that I believe everyone should watch. It fills you with memories of home-video Nollywood movies, where the storyline, cast, and direction of the movie spoke volumes of how an original Nigerian movie should be. In an industry filled with movies emulating the western culture, Lionheart is more than a breath of fresh air.
The casting of the movie was too perfect. It gave us the perfect blend of veterans that will no doubt make any movie great whether it is star-studded or not and new faces that one wouldn’t mind seeing in more movies down the line. I doff my hat off to Genevieve for the amazing directing she did. Even though it was her directorial debut, you had no choice but to f=be fully immersed in the movie and enjoy it while learning more than a lot.
Lionheart is no doubt the most feel-good movie of the year. It was simple, rugged at the edge but still refined and classy. There were no elaborate plots, no unnecessary and overplayed twists and turns, and the movie gave us a beautiful view of life in Anambra and what it means to run a business in corporate Nigeria.
It is a truly original movie that centres around the need for family to always have your back and also putting tribalism aside to expand, grow, and make your business keep on moving in an economy as harsh as ours.
There is no need to go in-depth, but if you are looking to watch a movie that you will enjoy while relaxing, without unforced touches of humour, devoid of forced bouginess, and with a very important lesson, then Lionheart is definitely the movie to watch.
Lionheart is available in select cinemas nationwide and also on Netflix

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
