"KEZIAH and MR IBU" versus "KEZIAH" (Not the Same Movie)
The above movie jacket is the newly made Keziah and Mr Ibu which is a continuation (i guess) from the original "Keziah" released 3 years ago as seen on the movie jacket below - My raves about Mercy's award winning performance is about her performance in Keziah (as seen below).
. Once again,let me clarify that the award winning performance by Mercy Johnson was in the movie "Keziah" (onye -obioma).
Keziah and "Keziah" and Mr Ibu" are two different movies.
This new one called "Keziah and Mr Ibu" also stars John Dumelo. If you want the all time classic which i can guarantee you will laugh throughout and you would enjoy Mercy excellent performance - I will have to say, ask your dealer or wherever you shop you want the original "Keziah" which came out 2/3 years ago. Dont let your dealer fool you and tell you its the same movie - NO!! it is not the same movie. Its unlikely many stores will have the same movie now since its at leas 3 years old now, but just ask you never know. And the story line for the original "Keziah" is as follows;
Keziah's mother warned her father against giving her the name "Keziah" as a baby at her baptism. Twenty three years later in her quest to come to the aid of a girlfriend who has been duped by her boyfriend, Keziah loses the thing most precious to her and her beloved father, and as a result, finds herself under the control of a curse that has transformed her into an addict of a different kind. John Okafor is hilarious as Keziah's father. It is also refreshing to see Mercy Johnson [Keziah] in a role that does not require her to empty her tear ducts. Lots of humorous moments and the movie rolls around at a quick pace. An innovative, situational comedy that at the very least will make you crack a smile. Loved it. .
