WHY ARE THERE NO CUSTOMERS IN THIS BANK AGAIN?

What exactly is happening to this bank that was formerly called PlatinumHabib Bank Plc but now Keystone bank.

I remember those days when people troop in and out of the bank, but these days, the banking hall is always empty.  The staff are always Idle as there are customers going in and out of the bank.  Mhen, I am wondering what it feels like for bankers o, to stay a day without a customer visiting their bank. The basic transaction is only done among themselves, if you know what I mean. As in just the cleaners, gate man, errand staff and the desk office staff in the bank.

The desk office staff would send the errand staff to buy food for them, while the cleaners again clean toilets that were not even used by customers but only the staff, while the gate man sits as he has overtime gotten used to being idle. So, even if one customer visits the bank, the gate man would not notice.

I visited one of their branches in Ikeja; I won’t mention the branch because I am even feeling so sad or ashamed for them; eye suppose they push them mhen.

They don stone this bank chai- they need to meet people with ideas (Kindly call for our services), and strategize ways to key the bank into greatness again, else it would just collapse like some building blocks arranged by a toddler.

GUARANTEE TRUST BANK (GTB)… ONLY EMPLOYS YORUBA PEOPLE

HEY there, am I the only one that has noticed this? or am I concluding too fast? Have you all noticed that GTBank employs only Yorubas.

Don’t get it twisted, I love the bank because it is one of the leading banks in Nigeria. They set the pace and others follow and that is why I bank with them.

But over the years, I noticed that all their employees and the employers are only Yorubas, there is no other ethnic group employed in that bank, if you luckily find any other tribe, may be 1%

Are you wondering how I knew? The truth is that anytime I visit any GTB branch, I take time to assess the staff in terms of communication, behavior, dressing, effectiveness and at the end I am always curious to know their names which is on the ID Card pinned to their cloth, so I see their names and believe me when I say, they are all Yorubas.

So I am wondering is it that other tribes are not intelligent or are not successful at interviews or being a Yoruba is one of the vital criteria one must have to work in the bank?

I have come to the conclusion that the founders who are Yorubas as well- Tajudeen Afolabi Adeola, Tayo Aderinokun and CEO- Segun Agbaje employ only Yorubas because they are Yorubas aand only love to work with people from that tribe.

If you doubt me, visit any GTBank, check their ID cards and all you would see are Yoruba names.

MOVIE REVIEW: OJA AWON OKU “AWFUL SCREENPLAY!”

A guy- Koya (Jokotade Bigval) having so much love for his girlfriend- Mope (Bukky Adekogbe) and not wanting to lose her, goes behind her back to do a charm that would harm and eventually kill any man that touches her. Koya died and this charm is still on Mope who is unaware of what her late boyfriend had done till her new boyfriend Omo Oba (Murphy Afolabi) who is the son of a wealthy king forcefully has sex with her.

This leads to the sickness of Omo Oba. In a bid to save his life, some brave men go into the forest to search for the almost impossible, which is the palm kernel with 6 faces, do you think they will find it?Will they be able to save Omo Oba? Find out in the review

THE REVIEW

The movie plot is not totally a new concept. In the 90’s we had a movie like Igando where some brave men where sent to the evil forest to get something and only one person survived. Well the stories are similar but there is a twist in which you have to watch to know the twist.

I don’t totally agree with the screenplay and I am wondering what the writers were thinking when they grabbed their pen to pen down some scenes.  First of all, it is very unrealistic for a king who has two sons and one of them is at the point of death to let the other son go into the evil forest ( where their survival chance is slim, less than 1 percent) to join others to search for healing for the brother, now where in the world does that happen?

The person that wrote this script is confused or whether the casts are, at times , you would hear in their dialogue where they said six men went into the forest, at some point, it became seven again.

The ending of the movie

So, later an old woman who didn’t even go into the forest with them had the pal kernel with 6 eyes, so my question is, where did she get it from and where was the old woman when they passed the news all over the village that they were looking for palm kernel with 6 eyes?

The ending was just a lazy man’s ending- they were already stuck and dis not have an idea of how to end the movie, so they gave it a terrible ending.

Then the film was shot using the olden days style, even their dressing and cars tell itall, but they have forgotten that when shooting film that is not in the contemporary setting, you have to be careful; I mean I saw vehicles made in the 2000’s on the road

Lastly, they tried to use the title of the movie to buy crowd, but the truth is there is nothing in the movie that has anything to do with Oja Awon Oku (Market of the dead people) – rubblish! From the title, I expected more from the 2hours 27 minutes film

Thumbs up: Great visual effects!

Costume wise

  • Just costume- they tried to make use of olden days costume but not all of them had that costume.

Sound wise

  • Good

Just thinking

  • Koya did rituals and the man told him to heed warnings, but at the end of the movie, we do not know what exactly they warned him about.
  • Nawa oo, this Mope’s friend was even smiling more than Mope wey the boyfriend get the motorcycle.
  • The king raped that Mope- and there was no continuity for that scene- the writers made it look like it is normal for a boyfriend to rape a girlfriend which is not normal.
  • I don’t even know who the Olori Agba and kekere is, they were just interchanging their characters
  • I am wondering why they made that girl’s face blurry.
  • I thought Badejo truly loved Mope why then did he rape her
  • Where did that old woman get the 6-faced kernel’s face from?
  • I saw six candle lights, but it seemed they were more than 6 that went into the forest.
  • Was this no-bra scene necessary
  • The team are not coordinated- they don not care about one another- they did not even know when this guy stopped to take water.
  • Did I just see this guy blink after he was confirmed dead? Chai, 1 hour 43 minutes
  • Who exactly is this guy in the 1 hour 43minutes 52 seconds of the movie, because he was not among the chosen 6 and how come that witch did not sense an intruder around. That his footwear is too horrible.
  • I am wondering why Disu told Dieko (Ibrahim Chatta) to be going home @ 1 hour 52 minutes 23 seconds
  • So how did Dieko die?We saw how others died….
  • The girl was made to carry the sacrifice for the prince despite being raped by the king

THROWBACK MOVIE: OMOTARA JOHNSON (OJ)

If there is one movie I do not want to delete from my catalogue of old movies, then it is the movie Omotara Johnson (OJ) parts 1-4. When you say film “di” interesting; mention OJ. That moment someone you have hurt deeply in the past keeps resurfacing in everything that has to do with your moving forward materially, spiritually, physically and maritally, basically your future.

Just like the title of the movie, the movie was about Omotara Johnson (Bukky Wright) who hated men and felt rather than marry a man she had opt for a dog. She would say she is not ready to be a slave in the guise of marriage. Aside her hatred for men was also her mean and desperate character. Whatever she wanted,  she would go any length to have. She wanted her best friend’s Kemi Ajibodu (Toyin Alausa) fiance – Tunde Bamgbopa (Chidi Mokeme) and went as far as killing her. She also killed Tunde’s best friend (Femi Brainard) who knew her rascal university life. She also killed more people aside the two.

She went to prison for her crimes but through a big chief (Jide Kosoko) she was granted a state pardon and was set free from prison. She became humble for a while. In her period of total humility, she met Oladele Oladipupo (Yomi Fash Lanso) who happen to be Tunde’s best friend. Oladele fell madly in love with her but later started cheating on her with Tolu (Ronke Odusanya). OJ also met with (Funsho Adeolu) who happened to want to transact business with Tunde. You want to know how her story would end? View here
