MERCY JOHNSON OKOJIE SHUNS HUSBAND IN THIS FAMILY PICTURE

Follow on IG@ogefash_july4

MERCY JOHNSON is one of Nollywood’s finest actors. If you are a fan of the actress, you would have noticed that she has been uploading various pictures on her social media back to back.

Some days ago, she shared pictures of herself while working out.

She also shared a cute picture of her and her husband beside a bicycle.

Today, the talented actress shared pictures of herself with their three kids. However, the husband was not in the picture. She did not really shun the husband, perhaps it is called “The mother with kids picture” so we are expecting “The father with kids picture” or just a picture of the entire family.

8 ATTITUDES THAT GIVE YOU AWAY AS A SHOPPING ADDICT!

Shopping addictions By Oge Nwabueze 

I have come to realize that every lady, well may be 99.8%, love the word ‘Shopping’ because it is fun and thrilling, especially when you have got the cash. But hey, be careful! What you thought could bring a spark on your face, might just end up ruining your day, leaving you with a feeling of guilt.  In essence, some ladies shop like there is no tomorrow; just like most men are addicted to alcohol, they are so obsessed with shopping.

Fine, I know you have got your eyes fixed on a variety of items. From the latest sleek phone, to that kitchen item you so want to get. Not to talk of the gold neck piece you have had your eyes on; the dresses, make up, bags, and those ‘’killer’’ heels that are just too adorable that you just can’t wait to lay your hands on and an endless list of personal items.

But the truth of the matter is that when this shopping becomes excessive, you become an addict because of the inability to control the urge to ‘’buy-buy’’. You buy every ‘pick-me-up’ object (things that are flashy and eye-catching). Funny as it may sound, even when you are in the toilet, bathroom, kitchen, or even on transit, your mind is constantly on the next item to purchase, with or without cash. Most times you cannot even concentrate on a particular thing this is because your attention is constantly divided.

I know you do not even mind spending the whole day at the supermarket, since that is what you do at leisure, (maybe you are even one of those ladies that put it as a ‘hobby’ in your CV) and after shopping, you enter the house with a bag full of items, and with a smile lurked at the side of your mouth, you walk stealthily to your room, glad nobody saw you. This is because you definitely know that someone who is not a freak like you or feels you were just extravagant might end up scolding you.

As an addict, you also yearn for the newest and trendiest collections via Facebook, Instagram or any other social network just to satisfy your urge at all cost. Dearie! “Social media go crash your bank account o”. Because, there are so many hard to resist items online that will only trigger that shopaholic instinct in you, and trust me, a freak like you would definitely find it difficult to resist the temptation of ordering for them.

Since it is difficult for a compulsive shopaholic like you to get your eyes off fancy items and the latest products, especially when you come across them, most often, you end up buying what you did not plan for and accumulate both relevant and irrelevant things.

Most annoying is that you tend to unconsciously re-buy items you already have. In the long run, those piled up items would become useless or outdated. To save yourself from the mess, you try to quickly sell them off, but again, you end up buying a new item to replace the old.

This addiction is most likely to be associated with people that appear on screen, possibly presenters, politicians, musicians, actresses, footballers; popular figures in sum. They always want to look their best since they are always under public scrutiny. They go the extra mile to please their fans by always appearing flashy which of course turns them to extravagant people over time, and some, I guess, (like I heard Mariah Carrey has) even have separate rooms for each item. It may also be a habit that sprung from being over pampered as a kid.

If you have an uncontrollable shopping habit, you are prone to get neck deep in debt, especially at festive periods. This is because after you spend and exhaust your money, you end up borrowing from someone else in a bid to satisfy your urge.  If any other day is a Xmas spree, then what would you now tag festive periods ‘your guess is as good as mine.

So, girl friend you need to really control your spending habit else, it will end up affecting other aspects of your life. It could be your personal life, finance, secular, relationships, family, and possibly your job.

Actually, I am not asking you not to shop, but always remember that human needs are voracious. Therefore, you better check yourself before you wreck yourself! And this can only be achieved by keeping your spending under control, whether rich or poor.

Attitudes or symptoms of one who is addicted to shopping

  • Divided Attention
  • Always spending and living above income
  • Being secretive about the things bought in order not to be reprimanded
  • Lying about the actual amount of money used in purchasing those items
  • Impetuous buying/ Buying things not planned for
  • Always thinking about where and what to buy next
  • Salary finishes in the second week of the month or earlier
  • Thinking obsessively about how to lay hands on extra cash

 

Facts

  • Ask yourself to what extent do you really need those items
  • What is the probability that because of your impatience, you have not purchased a fake product
  • Can you use everything at the same time, remember some might become old fashioned or be superseded by a better one, in this tech world, new things spring up before the count of seconds
  • Check your list again; maybe you shouldn’t be buying that item you picked. Trust me, you wont die if you do not buy it, but you can die gradually by buying it and running into debts.

Way out

  • Have a list of what you plan to buy, keep to that list, take the exact money, and possibly leave your ATM card at home. If the prizes of the items you want to buy have gone up, then drop an item, it is a way of learning to let go and avoid shopping addictions.
  • May be you can try going for shopping with someone that is not a freak like you, and please look for a better hobby

DANIELLA OKEKE EXPLAINS WHY SHE CHOSE ASS BUILDING OVER ASSET BUILDING

Follow on IG @ogefash_july4

“Ass building” as I love to call it, is also known as “Bum enlargement”. It is what is currently trending in the entertainment industry all over the world. Infact, attention has shifted away from the breast to the buttocks. In the early 90’s people wanted big boobs and did more of breast enlargement while people with big buttocks were always ashamed. But that is no longer the case; ladies are now all about enlarging their behinds at all cost.

Some of the celebrities that have enlarged either their bum, breast or some other parts of their body are Kim Kardarshian; infact all the Kardashians, Nicki Minaj, Cossy Ojiakor, Toyin Abraham, Ini Edo, Toke Makinwa, Iggy Azalea, Princess Shyngle, Black Chyna, Amber Rose, Jenna Jameson, Mercy Aigbe; the list is endless.

If I missed out a name, kindly share with other readers in the comment box (For both males and females)

American celebrities with various enhancements

Recently, I stumbled on this Daniel Okeke’s picture and I was like “Whaaaaat!” Not quite long I watched her movie titled “Lost pride” where her ass was small like mine only to stumble on an extremely big ass on her birthday. The reason the actress did this is basically to get more attention and nothing else. Imagine, she chose to build her ass rather than asset; omashe!

 

There is this story of a 2013 Nigerian ex-beauty queen- Nneka Onwuzuligbo who died after a buttock enlargement surgery that went awry. Reacting to her death Femi Fani Kayode, a well known Nigerian politician said ‘Vanity upon vanity”

Nigerian celebrities

It is amazing why people would spend their few thousands or plenty thousands to build an ass or enlarge their bum when dem no get kobo asset; smh

So why do these celebrities do these enhancements; for guys or non-guys?

ADVERT REVIEW: COLGATE’S ‘CLOSE TALKER’ “HOW CONVINCING IS THIS ADVERT?”

ADVERT REVIEW: COLGATE’S ‘CLOSE TALKER’ “HOW CONVINCING IS THIS ADVERT?”

Follow on IG @ogefash_july4

No doubt, some people avoid close conversations or keep a distance while conversing with people; perhaps, they fear they have a bad breath.

Well that was not the case of the major cast in this Colgate Total advert. Rather than keep at least few inches or an arms length of distance while conversing with others face to face, he instead loves to stand close to them; he was such a close talker.

THE ADVERT

It starts with a certain employee who is a close talker as well as a loyal Colgate toothpaste user. He loves to stand extremely close or better still put his face few inches away when conversing with people. So, he approaches a male colleague and tells him how much of a close talker he is. He also tells his colleague about the new “Colgate total”. His colleague says nothing but just stares at him.

 

Next, the close talker approaches another colleague, this time around a female. He also tells her about the new “Colgate Total” He says “The breakthrough formula does more,” but the woman only replies “Wonderful”

 

Next, he approaches two people, this time a man and a woman still telling them about the new “Colgate Total.” He says “Sensitivity; strengthens teeth; it kills germs through the whole mouth” The man replies “I love your confidence” while the woman just stares at him in an astonishing manner.

 

Next, the close talker approaches another male colleague and as usual, puts his face inches away from his. He tells him there is no such word like “too close” to which his colleague disagrees initially but later agrees to

ADVERT NARRATION

Close talker– I am a close talker, so I was excited about all new Colgate Total. Its breakthrough formula does more (Wonderful).                                                                                                Sensitivity, strengthens teeth. It kills germs through the whole mouth. (I like your confidence)  Close talker– (Thanks Mr. Lee)                                                                                                                      Close talker: Now, there is no such thing as too close; Colleague: Yes there is                                  Close talker: No there is not; Colleague Yes there is                                                                              Close talker: No, there is not; Colleague Okay                                                                                    All new Colgate; do more for your whole mouth.

MESSAGE IN THE ADVERT

Colgate Total toothpaste neutralizes bad breath. It leaves the mouth healthier breaking through the teeth, cheeks, tongue and gums. You certainly do not have to be scared of any stench from your mouth while conversing with others especially if you are a close talker.

 

SUMMARY OF THE ADVERT

The advert is about  a certain male employee who loves to stand extremely close to people when talking to them. As in, he loves to converse with people while his face is few inches away from them; he is such a close talker. So, this employee in his usual manner of conversing with people, tells all his colleagues about how effective the new “Colgate total” toothpaste is.

Also, the close talker is excited about using the new Colgate total because it neutralizes the mouth. Hence, it helps him to be a confident close talker.

THE REVIEW

This “Colgate Total” advert is called “The close talker”

#Google defines a close talker as someone who stands uncomfortably close to others while talking, which the major cast does while talking with people all through the 30 seconds video.

To be honest, if someone was always coming that close to me when conversing with me, “amma” think he is not alright. #Winks. Kidding, but that’s the truth!

The advert did not start out by identifying what the problem is, rather, it started out with a solved problem. The problem has to do with bad breath and people keeping their distance while conversing. The solution is the use of Colgate Total toothpaste which we see the close talker holding and showing his colleagues with confidence.

But really, the dude interpreted his role well as a close talker. He was also quite convincing which was essential if they really needed people to pick up Colgate Total toothpaste at the grocery store.

I must say the whole cubicle-type of office setting is on point. No doubt, the advert is also easy to comprehend, but does it have the strategy to push People into purchasing the toothpaste being adertised? Yes! We see the confidence in the close talker as well as no one squirmed while he talked..

REMARK

The advert is quite convincing and has the capacity to push people into buying the product

SOUND

Just instrumentals; interesting!

THE REVIEW

This is the type of song that you say, “No beating around the bush”; as in no ‘pussy footing’ if you know what I mean. The artistes did not code most of the lewd words they used in the song; except in the verse 2 where Cardi B sang “Your pussy basura…My pussy Orchata”

But this song is the real definition of sexual.

Lyrically, the song has just two verses sung by Cardi B. Both Cardi B and Bruno Mars sang the chorus and the bridge while Bruno Mars alone sang the pre-chorus.

The lyrics flowed well with the beat of the song. The lyrics to the song are lewd as they basically talk about sexual pleasure to one’s significant other…

Some of the lewd lines include…

“Lolly popping (popping), twerking in some j’s…no panties in the way (Nope)
Better fuck me like we listen to in the Jozy…When I’m fucking again (Ayy)
Dinner reservations like the pussy, you going eat out”

“Booty so soft, bet you wanna smack it again (Ayy)
Let me demonstrate…Hit it one time, make it levitate)
Your pussy basura (basura)…My pussy Ochata (oh)”

Song arrangement~Intro Chorus~Verse1~Pre Chorus~ Chorus~ Verse 2~ Pre Chorus~ Chorus~Bridge~Chorus

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the chorus, “Please me baby” Bruno Mars in a sexual tone implores Cardi B to satisfy him and make him happy. He also implores her to change her body direction in a way that will get him sexually aroused. He basically wants her to pleasure him sexually while Cardi B taunts him sexually about it asking him to plead for it which he does.

In the Verse 1, “Lollipopping, twerking in some J’s” Cardi B reveals her sexual mood which can be seen in the first line where she makes use of the word lollipopping. Lollipopping is the use of lolly on the woman’s clitoris before oral sex to pleasure her as well as make oral sex pleasurable. Perhaps when he is lollipopping her, he wants her to smell like candy or something. Still on the sexual mood, she reveals that she is dancing in a sexual way with no panties on to hinder her dance moves.

 

Cardi B also reveals that she knows what she wants and that she is not one without a direction; she just wants to have great sex. She also makes it clear that it is going to be a dinner of lollipopping; oral sex.

In the pre chorus, “I am gonna ride it, do it” Bruno Mars says it is unlike him to beg for sexual pleasures, but she is different. He begs to have sex with her in the style she wants it.

In the verse 2,”Booty so round” Cardi B gives a sexual description of her body and the position she wants to take when she wants to have sex with her guy. She also implores the guy to sex her again. She says other pussies smell while hers is hot and smells good.

In the bridge, “Come on, come on, back it up for me” Bruno Mars and Cardi B still talk about sexual pleasures they want from each other and how they want it..

WHAT DOES THE SONG “PLEASE ME” BY CARDI B AND BRUNO MARS MEAN

In the context of this song, “Please me” means to satisfy and make one happy sexually. Or better still, it means to pleasure one sexually. The lyrics and their gestures further show the sexual nature of the song. In the song Bruno Mars pleads with Cardi B to pleasure him sexually. From the video, one can tell that they are really eager to get down.

LOCATION

Shot in Los Angeles. They did mostly indoor shooting; Tacos restaurant, Mexico. The outdoor shooting used was when they were on the driveway and it was in the latter part of the song.

SOUND

Extremely tuneful! So pleasing to the ears! They were so very expressive as they sang the lyrics. Clear and rich vocals! I love where Bruno Mars modulated in the chorus and bridge, he did not go screechy. The drums as well as the percussion instruments enhanced the beauty of the song. The beat flowed with the lyrics as well.

VIDEO PRODUCTION

First of all, I love the choice of setting in the music video; quite different from the conventional setting used by other artistes. The visuals are clear and interesting to watch. The video complements the track. Just like the track is lewd, there are some body gestures that are also very erotic in the video.

(+LYRICS + MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW- BREAK UP WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND, I’M BORED BY ARIANA GRANDE “THIS SONG PROMOTES LESBIANISM AND…”

(+LYRICS + MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW- BREAK UP WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND, I’M BORED BY ARIANA GRANDE “THIS SONG PROMOTES LESBIANISM AND…”

Follow on IG @ogefash_july4

In as much as homosexuality (Sex with person of thesame sex) is allowed there in the country to an extent, but what has lesbianism got to do with this innocent track?  People just want to have zero reasons to do wrongs and promote illicit acts. The chorus says “Break up with your girlfriend” which clearly indicates that Ariana’s Interest is in a particular guy and not the other way round. In essence, she wants a particular guy to break up with his girlfriend so that they can be together. But in the video she first of all flirts with a boy and then moves to the girl in the latter part of the song. The song doesn’t only promote lesbianism, but also remorseless infidelity in a relationship.

As a matter of fact, the artiste says one thing and does another. As in, the track says one thing and the video does another. How you may ask? Okay, take a look at the bridge “You can say I’m hating if you want to. But I only hate on her ’cause I want you…”

What does that indicate? That she is interested in Okurin (Nwoke, Maza, Homme, Man) not Obirin (Nwaanyi, Mata, Femme, Woman)

Okay, enough of the long-winded intro, let’s quickly take a gander at the lyrics below

LYRICS TO BREAK UP WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND BY ARIANA GRANDE

INTRO

 BEATZ

VERSE 1

You got me some type of way (Hmm)

Break up with your girlfriend (With your girlfriend)
Yeah yeah, cause I am bored

With your girlfriend, girlfriend, girlfriend, baby, girlfriend; with your girlfriend
With your girlfriend, girlfriend, girlfriend, girlfriend; with your girlfriend

THE REVIEW

Lyrically, the song comes in two verses. The chorus “Break up with your girlfriend” was sung three times while the pre-chorus “Then I realize…” twice. The lyrics flowed well with the beat. Each line is dependent on another line to form a meaning. The lyrics are well written and arranged. Each verse has 8 lines. She sang in English.

The song arrangement– Intro- verse 1- pre chorus- chorus- verse 2- pre chorus- chorus- bridge- chorus

The song talks about the artiste’s desire for a guy to break up with his girlfriend and be with her.

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the verse 1, “You got me some type of way (Hmm)”, Ariana says a guy has got her desiring him in a way that is difficult to describe; unexplainable. She is suddenly having feelings (or she is infatuated about the guy) for some guy she knows nothing about which is unlike her.

She says after taking a gander at his face, all she feels like doing is just to sample him to know what he feels like underneath. She says she has a principle of not getting down with some guy like that but at the moment she is willing to do anything for the guy. She says her gestures and countenance give her away that the guy would no doubt be able to tell that she is truly thinking about getting down with him.

In the pre-chorus “Then I realize she is right there”, the artiste lets us know that whenever she feels like making a move; perhaps initiate a conversation with the guy by telling him to quit his relationship to be with her or to get down with her, she is unable to cause his girlfriend is always by his side of course and it is maddening

In the chorus “Break up with your girlfriend”, the artiste persuades  the guy to quit his relationship with his current girlfriend to be with her, just because she is tired of being alone. She says if he does, he can have all of her anytime or better still, he can get down (Sexual access) with her anytime like he owns her.

In the verse 2 “This shit don’t always happen to me (Yeah)” the artiste says how she feels for the guy and the longing to get down with him is not typical of her. She hopes that when she finally gets to have him, it would be permanent rather than temporary “Why can’t we just play for keeps? (Hmm-Hmm)” She is thinking about sex with him and is pleading for it. The guy has an effect on her. The way he is always singing her songs has got her longing more for him. However, she says the guy e is pretending like he doesn’t know that she longs for him, whereas his facial expression and gestures say something else; they give him away..

In the bridge,“You can say I’m hating if you want to” the artiste says she dislikes the guy’s girlfriend because she has what she wants which she feels is unfair. She also says she has feelings for the guy and belives they would be good together. She believes she is far better than his girlfriend

WHAT DOES THE SONG “BREAK UP WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND” BY ARIANA GRANDE MEAN?

Like the word break up means to disentangle from someone or to end a relationship. The song basically talks about the artiste’s plea with a particular guy she so much desires to end his relationship with his current girlfriend just to be with her.

 

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Break up~To split, Disentangle; Bored~To be tired of doing a particular thing.

Some type of way~ Having a feeling that you developing feelings for someone

Hit it~To have access to someone sexually; Tripping~To start developing feelings for someone.

Acting innocent: To act naïve when you are not. Or better still, playing blameless or pretending not to know about something or how to do something in order to deceive people, whereas you may be a pro in it.

 

Break Up- To end a relationship, to disintegrate

Play for keeps: Having the intention of retaining or possessing something or someone permanently rather than just temporary

LOCATION

Shot somewhere in America; either a lounge or a nightclub. Mostly outdoor shoots.

SOUND

The tempo is kind of slow, but interesting. The singer has an interesting and appealing vocal that makes the song pleasing to the ears. She was quite audible except for the pre-chorus where I strained my ears to hear her lines. Her lyrics flowed well with the beat. The instruments used were not varied; however, there was consistency in the style of rhythm. The major instruments used were the drums and piano and this really enhanced the beauty of the strong.

 

VIDEO PRODUCTION

There is a twist to this song; at the onset, she was interested in a guy, but towards the end of the song, her interest shifted to a lady. In this regard, I would say the video is far from complementing the song. Because the track doesn’t seem like one promoting lesbianism but the video ended up promoting lesbianism.

The singer opted for only night scenes all through the video shoot, and they had terrific night light set up. In essence, the lightning was terrific; both the interior and exterior scenes.

Yeah, I actually recognize this guy as Halsey’s boyfriend in the song “Without me” (View the review here @www.ogefash.reviews) Hold up, let me ask Google for his name…

Okay, his name is Charles Melton. Charles is an actor and he is of half Korean descent (Wikipedia says)

 

JUST WONDERING

  • Why there was no song title or artiste’s name in the visual
  • Really, I did not know people were always generous at nightclubs to the extent that they call strangers to dance with their spouse.

SYNOPSIS

Mac Donald (Acted by Matthew Modine) and two others-Truby and Foster (Acted by Swen Temmal and Sergio Rizzuto) invade the Central City Bank on a Monday morning carting away 20 million dollars from the robbery; they afterwards go and hide the money in the cement factory where Mac Donald works. As they journey away, they are intercepted by Detective Frank’s (Acted by Christopher Mc Donald) men who ask for their own share in the stolen money according to their bargain. All hell is however let loose when Mac Donald, Truby and Foster decide to take 15 million dollars for themselves and then drop the remaining 5 million dollars against the initial bargain.

This brings a disagreement leading to an exchange of fire by the two teams. Truby and Foster die in the shootout while Mac Donald is the only survival. Mac Donald’s survival however leaves him with a serious brain injury that makes him suffer Amnesia. While in a prison psychiatric ward, Mac Donald is unable to remember not even a single scene from the bank robbery, his family or pasts until one day, the trio of Lucas, Farren and Erin (Acted by Ryan Guzman, Tyler Jon Olson and Williams Meadow) help him break out of prison and inject him with a serum to bring back all his forgotten memories.

What happened next? Why were the trio; Lucas, Farren and Erin interested in making Mac Donald get back his memories? Find out here

BLACKTRACE PLOT

After the three robbers comprising Mac Donald, Truby and Foster (Acted by Matthew Modine, Swen Temmal and Sergio Rizzuto)  respectively) successfully robbed the Central City Bank, they set off to the cement factory where Mac Donald works to hide the money. As they journey away, they are intercepted by Detective Frank’s (Acted by Christopher Mc Donald) men. The men order the trio- Mac Donald, Truby and Foster to release the money. However, things go awry when the trio releases only 5,000 dollars out of the 20,000 dollars. This leads to an argument and eventually an exchange of fire between the trio and Frank’s men.  Both Truby and Foster die in the shootout while Mac Donald gets badly injured in the head.

The enforcement officials led by Sykes (Acted by Sylvester Stallone) are on the field investigating the incident. They discover out that Truby, one of the robbers killed used to be part of the security guards for the Central city bank. Meanwhile, the paramedics come around with their ambulance to carry Mac Donald who is now in coma after sustaining serious head injury from the gun battle. Sykes orders that no one should relate with Mac Donald except him once he is out of coma.

The news reporter (Acted by Alanna Tremblay) at the “6 NEWS” Station updates the viewers about the Central City bank robbery.  During the news report, a video on the press conference of Captain Stover (Acted by Joe Gelchon) of metropolitan police department is shown to viewers. Captain Glover reveals more information on the robbers and the robbery. One of his revelations shows that Truby worked as a contract staff for the bank. Captain Glover says they are still reviewing their findings on the incident with the FBI. He urges the populace to be patient as they do not want to jump the gun till they have definitive details on the robbery.

7 years down the lane, Mac Donald is suffering from Amnesia after the injury he sustained in the head during the gun battle. He is being locked up in a prison psychiatric ward; he is unable to remember anything about the robbery, his family or past. As Dr. Nichols (Acted by Lydia Hall) attends to him, she feels it is for his good if he doesn’t remember anything about his past.

While Mac Donald is lunching, an inmate by the name Lucas (Acted by Ryan Guzman) who is going to be discharged that day approaches him and compels him to find ways to break out of prison. Lucas offers to get Mac Donald out of the prison with the aid of his friends if he agrees

A fake security guard- Farren (Acted by Tyler Jon Olson) tampers with the CCTV so that he and his crew- Lucas and Erin (Acted by Ryan Guzman and Meadow Williams) can successfully get Mac Donald out of the prison.  Erin smuggles  Mac Donald out, she put him in the trunk of her car till she is out of the building uncaught.

Mac Donald is now out of the prison with the help of Lucas, Farren and Erin. While watching a live broadcast, he sees his face plastered all over the television on his escape from prison. Lucas moves close to Mac Donald and asks if he can remember anything about the robbery but he replies no. Lucas then takes him to the room that has lots of images about him, his friends and the robbery to jog his memories back but still he is able to remember nothing.

Detective Frank’s (Acted by Christopher Mc Donald) team wants full cooperation from Captain Stover (Joe Gelchon), Sykes  (Acted by Sylvester Stalon) and the rest of their team. They agree to work together in transparency in order to get to the root of the matter.

Lucas, Farren and Erin tell Mac Donald about their intention to inject him with an LPT enhancer; a drug that stimulates the frontal lobe of the brain which controls memory. Erin tells Mac Donald that some of the side effects he would suffer after the injection are dizziness, vertigo, hallucination and more headaches. Farren is all about the money and compels him to take the drug so that he will remember where he put the money so they can go retrieve it and be successful. Mac Donald after some few minutes finally agrees to be injected in order to get back memories of his past events.

When Erin finally injects Mac Donald with the drug, he becomes giddy, loses balance and almost falls down.  In his unsteadiness, Mac Donald staggers to the balcony which makes a cop driving by notice their presence.  While Farren tries to calm Mac Donald down, both Erin and Lucas device a means to get the cop off their back. They step out of the house and pretend to be going somewhere. The cop however stops them and tells them that the house is a foreclosed property. They find a way to convince the cop that they got the house because the bank enlisted it for auction.  The cop asks for their ID card but he is somehow unable to wait and check their ID cards as he gets a call. He however orders them to get property documentation if they want to stay in the foreclosed building and then drives off immediately.

Minutes later, Mac Donald starts remembering his past events including the robbery incident. The trio-Lucas, Farren and Erin follow him closely and take note of all he says so they can get the location he and his dead friend had buried the money. They take a tour to various places from his disclosure until they finally get to where he hid the money at the cement factory. At the cement towers, Mac Donald remembers the robbery, his family as well as Detective Frank.

During carter’s (Acted By Colin Egglesfield) investigation, he finds out that the security guard- Farren stole the identification from the one who already died in a car crash. He calls Sykes and updates him on it. Meanwhile, Sykes ask him about the cement factory Mac Donald used to work and if they ever found anything, and he replies no. Sykes however feels they have not searched in the right place. This perhaps pushes Carter to go to the cement factory where he notices that there are people in the building. Frank’s men are also at the cement towers to get the money. Carter sees three packs in the building and orders the people in the building to surrender. Both Erin and Farren surrender while Lucas and Mac Donald get the bag of money. Carter calls Skype who is on his way to the cement towers to update him on his findings but he is unable to finish the conversation as he is killed by Frank’s men during a shootout. Farren also dies in the process. This angers Lucas and he kills Frank’s men outrightly.

While Mac Donald, Erin and Lucas are still brooding and tearing over Farren’s death, Frank and his new team enter the cement towers and instantly fire shots which hit Lucas. Mac Donald and Erin grab Lucas and move away from their sight. Lucas in his pains tell Mac Donald to go get the money from where they had kept it. Sykes is close to the building and since he did not end the call with Carter he is able to hear all that is happening there. He hears all Frank’s discussion with Mac Donald as Frank searches for him in order to gun him down. Frank’s secret is exposed to Sykes. When Sykes finally gets to the cement towers, he kills all Frank’s men as well as Frank. He lets Mac Donald, Lucas and Erin go with the money.
