Favourite Movie "Keeping Faith" by Ego Boyo (Re-released)

.Starring Genevieve Nnaji and RMD and an excellent cast

I watched this movie very many years ago (10 yrs ago) and it has remained one of my all time favourite Nollywood movies.  I have mentioned gajillion times on this blog as one of my unforgettable all time favourite romantic movie with a dynamic cast and produced by Ego Boyo. I watched it so many times i lost track.
.
Good News for all those newbies who have been watching movies less than 10 years ago, Above is a photo jacket of one of my old time favourite. Well many people asked me to borrow my copy for years, but i never did (yes i am stingy with all my dozens and dozens of old Genevieve Nnaji movies i have in my collection - i dont lend my "all time classics" to family let alone friends) - so the good news is it has been re-released back on the market (USA). Yes Keeping Faith was what the former title was , I guess to make it seem like it is something new so now they calling it Keeping The Faith. When it comes to my classics and esp. the romance or village ones, when one ask me to borrow, the answer is was and will always will be no. I have learnt people borrow and they never return. Lol
.
Unfortunately all you newbies who only started watching African movies only 3 -5 yrs ago missed out on the very best from 8-10yrs ago. The older movies although the sound quality and picture quality was not as good - the script were better and the acting was way better, unlike the junk they been putting out with these horse hair wearing-INARTICULATE-mediocre overnite actresses, as its been for the past few years (and of which I REFUSE to waste my precious time reviewing because torturing my eyes to watch them was bad enough). I suggest you dig out and search for old titled movies from more than 5 yrs ago. You will enjoy it more.
.
I will not tell you the story line - just find it BUY it and i promise you will enjoy it and if you dont I will give your refund - LOL.
.
Movie stars RMD, Bimbo Akintola, Funlola Aofiyebi, Olu Jacobs, Joke Silva, Fred Amata etc. Excellent eloquent articulate speaking cast, great script, perfect acting, bar none. From this movie, I have always said Bimbo Akintola and Funlola Aofiyebi are one of "the" most UNDERRATED actresses in nollywood of all time (am assuming a few of you dont even know whom am talking about)
.
I have had a lot of request in the past to list all my top and favourite movies and very soon i will do that. Already if you search the blog you will find my favourite Genevieve Nnaji movie  listing, since i been watching her over 10 yrs now, however i plan to make a list of other all time favourites (eg "All My Life" - starring Rita Dominic and Omotola Ekeinde etc etc).
.
ps: This movie is my very first time i saw Funke Akindele, she was in for a short time, but i never forgot her convincing local champion performance and I said to my self that day that this girl is going to be a star some day, because i saw her in another movie and she was so totally different, very eloquent, and i felt she did a convincing job in "Keeping Faith" it takes only a great actress to leave that impression on me - cos i honestly thought from KF she was a real life village champion of some sort. So I am not surprised today Funke Akindele is a big star now. Dont forget Funke very educated, and was a Lagosian Bar Certified Lawyer too  before she became an actress. So she is very smart and talented, and you gotta give it to her. She acts those village champion roles so well you would assume she never set foot in a school.

P.S. Keeping The Faith is the name of an American movie.
