Of course it’s the title of a movie. What do I know about marriage that I want to be telling you people about divorce?
Divorce? Not Allowed is a romcom produced and directed by Mike Ezuruonye. It tells the story of 3 men in unhappy marriages. Chuks (Bolanle Ninalowo), a movie star is married to Ego (Angela Okorie), a local woman who helped him through school when they were lovers in the village. Hycent abi Hyacinth (Mike Ezuruonye) is married to Omotara (Iyabo Ojo), a once upon a time slay queen now a born-again Christian. Joe (Rotimi Salami) is married to Linda (Kehinde Olorunyomi), Linda is so dominating to the extent of always being on top during sex Lmao.
Obviously these men are unhappy, Chuks does everything to make Ego leave him. Hycent cheats on Omotara with Ovie (Efe Irele) and even brings her into his home after he served Omotara divorce papers. Joe, well, Joe leaves Linda.
Of all the Nollywood movies I’ve seen this year, Divorce? Not Allowed is my favourite. The script is a breath of fresh air, the acting is topnotch. Iyabo Ojo was the standout star of the movie, her portrayal of Omotara was gold, she connected with the character and was able to bring it to life perfectly.
Even if you’re not into Nollywood movies, please see Divorce? Not Allowed.
