    I don’t think it’s a Igbo movie tho

    I do not support the idea that it’s an Igbo movie too. I think the film oscillates between Yoruba and Igbo. I also do not like the idea of the river, it sort of presents another idea and perhaps a different “spiritual” world aside the Abiku or ogbanje world. Water has never been related with Ogbanje, and “Yemoja” would not allow “Abiku” to sully her name or offer any Ogbanje a door of escape through her waters

      The film is universal. Water is universal. It’s a symbol for “transportation”. The obvious merging cultural influences in the film makes way for several infusions.

    2. You people are too knowledgeable about these concepts or phenomena. I don’t even know how to comment. I however loved the mishmash of cultures and philosophies. The style gave the film a kicker. Then that director called Martin ehn, that boy thinks he can scatter someone’s head abi? He thinks he can be making films in the style of the quotes he puts on his status? We are watching him.
