So no points for originality or predictability on the surface because we all know how this one is going to end.
But I will give abundant credit because even though we would have watched it anyways, the writer decides to introduce a Caucasian lead-male and by so doing reveal a societal issue.
In the western world today, we hear all these headlines about how ‘black lives matter’ and how all races are equal. So it’s interesting and astute to see and feel what it’s like to be accosted with reverse racism in our home country.
Even though it’s not the overlying message of the movie, that is to say it is not preached and forced down your throat, the writer still includes it in such a way that the viewer is forced to come face to face with their own prejudices.
There are many appealing things about this movie especially on a surface level. One word that would not be out of place to use to describe this movie is, beautiful.

You don't see enough of the people behind the scenes, the people that endure the crazy work hours and high demands I place on my co-collaborators. People still ask me what agency handled my marketing campaign but they don't know that I worked with 3 main people, Yinka Epega @theofficialskinnygirl who handled our PR which was at the heart of our marketing, Ope @oyinkan_e handled our entire digital campaign and Victor @v_etukudo who designed all our marketing materials, with partners like @bellanaijaonline who stood by us through every single step!
Regrann from @oyinkan_e - #ThrowbackThursday The biggest digital marketing campaign I have probably handled till date. (actually my first of its kind). I learned a lot on this journey, including what I now know as “social media buying”. Thankful for the opportunity given me by #JadeOsiberu 😁 Please if you follow me and didn’t see this movie, we need to talk. 😒😒😒😒 #ContentMarketer#DigitalMediaMarketer#TBT#isokenthemovie#GoodVibesOnly - #regrann

I just want to say. I have seen many good films.
If you’re looking for an African story that really curates the Narrative to show the every day life of the contemporary Afro feminist woman, you may have found your match.
