Title: Confusion Na Wa
Genre: Comedy Drama
Starring: Ramsey Nouah, O.C. Ukeje, Gold Ikponmwosa, Tunde Aladese, Tony Goodman, Ali Nuhu
Director: Kenneth Gyang
Confusion Na Wa is not a movie you watch with your brain asleep. The balance of humour and satire combined with strong performances make this film award winning stuff (Best Picture –2013 Africa Movie Academy Awards). Without trying, the under dogs look far more intelligent than the seemingly successful people. And for a change, we get beautiful shots of Northern Nigeria with local actors. The language while appearing simple has so much depth and is stylised. Unfortunately, there are some lighting issues and the translations could have been improved. Confusion Na Wa ticks all the boxes for the right reasons.
