Jadesola Osiberu’s Isoken retains its number one spot on the YNaija film ranking for this month. Despite a few new releases since its June 2017 debut, the movie is a beautifully developed masterpiece. Isoken hit the cinemas on June 16th and has since then garnered a lot of viewing and positive reviews from movie buffs.
Bariga Sugar was a short film set in the mid-90s Lagos detailing the struggles of low-class Lagos and how people struggle to make ends meet. Originally released in February 2017, the film has been making the rounds on social media again and is intensely important for the culture.
