Have you ever heard the phrase “first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in the carriage”? This makes you have the ideology that the moment you fall in love and get married, voluntary or involuntary a child follows suit after the marriage. This was probably the same thought these two individuals had before the bride walked down the aisle (starring Blossom Chukwujekwu and Enado Odigie).
Coming to your BoxOffice ,17th July 2019, this is an intense drama titled Joba. Joba focuses on a couple- as mentioned above-struggling through another aspect of marriage that is not always portrayed in Nollywood.
I insinuated above that the ‘baby in the carriage’ did not show up in their lives…the baby did. You see the gist? Do you see the juicy content this movie encompasses? This intense drama is about a couple that gets married and they spend years waiting for a child. I know this is something some people can relate to, especially the women. The backlash, abuse, side talks that’ll be received from in-laws and lovef ones. That is the moment they will know that ‘you are not their wife anymore’ or ‘you have refused to give them grandchildren’ when sometimes it is beyond your power- they do not want to hear that.
After spending years in marriage waiting for a child, a child finally arrives…good news for them! Even I can feel the relief and happiness they must have felt when the wife announced her pregnancy and delivered the child. Everyone was joyous; in a state of bliss, celebration is in the air, but it’s like this child did not come to save them from their situation but rather add more pepper to their healing wounds. Which one is ‘add pepper to their healing wounds now? I thought the stress was over?’ No, it is not over. The child comes in a way that leaves them struggling to hold the threads of their marriage together. What type of situation is this? Just when I had thrown my party hat on to celebrate with them for their bundle of joy.
This is one movie I will like to fix my eyes on my screen to watch. Are you not also wondering how they will survive after the hardship that comes with this bundle of Joy?
