Mo Abudu’s collaboration with Netflix through her media company Ebonylife which produced the current rave of the moment the movie, Blood Sisters has been garnering praises from Nigerians and movie lovers in diaspora. blood sisters

Blood Sisters has gone ahead to become the first Nigerian Netflix original series and looking at the total package it is worth the hype. Before the movie came out and the trailer surfaced, it looked good, but like many Nollywood movies, people thought it was just hype; you know those movies you watch and the trailer whets your appetite and when the movie itself comes out its wack, yeah many thought that would be the end product but Mo Abudu had something thrilling, suspense-filled, realistic, and emotion-packed for her viewers and she delivered.

In fact, it can be said this is her best production thus far. The film Blood Sister proved that you can have a million and one big actors in a movie and still have an amazing production; the fact that Ramsey Nuoah played the bodyguard (Uncle B) and not one of the sons (Kola and Femi) and he fit that little yet important role to the hilt; the fact that Toyin Abraham appeared in just one scene in the village and she delivered, same for Joke Silva, we can go and on, but fact remains that they all delivered and were relevant in their roles and scenes which is not an easy feat to achieve. Mo Abudu has shown through this production that sex can be realistic in a Nigerian film. This is something Nollywood has been getting wrong for ages, the understanding that sex is beyond nudity but the foreplay, dirty talks, and everything that it involves matters, and they all came into play in this film and Olayinka (Kehinde Bankole) and Femi (Gabriel Afolayan) helped us see this. That usual gap we see when a new face surfaces in a Nollywood movie was covered because the casting was right. The character of Timeyin (Genoveva Umeh) was so well played that people forget that she is not as popular as Kate Henshaw or Nancy Isime. Let’s even talk about the food for thought dished out silently yet in a very loud way in the movie; the statement of the elephant made to Inspector Joe (Wale Ojo) while he was so hell-bent on solving the case as soon as possible, only to be reminded that the Police are like the elephant, they do things slow and steady, which shows what the Nigerian police has turned into. Another jab thrown at the terrible state of the Nigerian Police was when Sarah (Ini Dima-Okojie) and Kemi (Nancy Isime) were on their way back from killing the journalist and were stopped by the Police and they said ‘happy Friday’. weekend

In today’s society, certain terms and greetings have become slang that the Police use as a way of telling you to give them money. The two ladies gave them money and they let them pass. It once again shows the pathetic state of the Nigerian Police which many pray comes to an end soon. Another deep food for thought was Inspector Joe’s accent which hasn’t changed after so many years and his reason for relocating back to Nigeria. In today’s society many would rather leave than stay in Nigeria but we forget that if everyone leaves, how would Nigeria get better, as cliche as it sounds, this is a very valid point. Inspector Joe is an example of that persona. The content of this movie Blood Sisters is fire. We can go on and on from the terrific and on point costumes, to the makeup, delivery, music even the fact that it is breaking records; all these point me to the fact that the movie Blood Sisters writes in bold letters that Nollywood has a bright future and this is just the beginning.
