Film Review – No good Turn

This critically acclaimed 2016 short film tells the story of the aftermath of a Boko Haram attack on a Police station. Written, directed and starring Udoka Oyeka (Sylvia). Udeka plays Dr Gbenga, who is trying to do his job to save the injured would be suicide bomber, as well as try to protect him from an incensed and grieving police chief played by Norbert Young. 

Truly a great watch and it even more impressive that Udoka stars and directed the film. I like the cameo role from Waje as well (even though she doesn’t have much lines) but it’s good to see her making the transition to the big screen from music.
