Why Marry

Why Marry

The trailer looks interesting but can Majid Michel and Yvonne Okoro ONLY get it going for that long (considering how Ghanaian movies drag on and on)?

Double D is introducing their first 2 cast movie called ‘Why Marry‘…LOL. How is this possible? Even when we have dozens of Actors and Actresses, majority of the movies still suck …what will happen to a movie made by only two?

These two are good when it comes to acting, so I am not worried about their delivery but then won’t it be boring? Anyway, until we get to watch the entire movie, let’s enjoy the interesting trailer below…

I am told by someone who has seen the movie that, it is a great piece…Make I see for myself first before I go trust am!

    this is absolutely a rip off of a nigerian movie with the title MODUPE TEMI( a yoruba language movie) which was produced by saidi balogun, directed by daniel ademinokan, starring saidi balogun and doris simeon, this is just exactly the same movie with a few adjustments here and there, GC i am still waiting patiently for the review of somehere in africa u guys promised to review as soon as u watch it, it has been almost 2 weeks now and yet no review, or maybe it was a complete rip off of sarafina too.

    @B.B, whether i have copied something or not is besides the point, the point here is that copying someones intellectual property is wrong, i know nollywood does it sometimes,but it is extremely rampant in ghana’s movie industry to the extent that the copy the whole idea and make few adjustments. yes it is okay to copy an idea, but when u are retelling what u copied, all u have to do is tell it from ur own perspective simple and short, not copy everything vabatim to the extent of even copying the names of the characters.

    @jonjon, ghanaian movies are best in what and where, atleat our yoruba movies are popular outside of nigeria to some certain extent, which language ghanaian movies are popular outside ghana.if the ghanaian movies are the best, how come nigerian movies are the ones breaking records, mirror boy had the biggest premiere in london, it also had a theatrical release that ran for a straight 3 weeks period, it is also the highest grossing african movie in silverbird cimema in ghana,anchor baby is going to have a uk cinema release on september,which ghanaian movies has much quality the nigerian movie black gold has which was profiled on cnn early this year,majority of the hit ghanaian movies these days are done by nigerians, all the world knows and are talking about is nollywood not the ghanaian movie industry.

    @flint,When you say  nigerian movie is making records in the UK, do you think it is a big feat? Let a Nollywood movie stay on top at the box office in the US ,then you say the movie is on top.Let it compete with Harry Potter,Planet of the Apes etc.then you are  talking!!! Then you can make all the noise.As far as i know there are some very good Ghanaian movies and there are also some very good Nigerian ones and both industries have some bad movies too.  Please the world is talking Hollywood and may be Bollywood,(There are also Hollywood movies which are a total flop too!!). Let your Nollywood movies,actors and actresses win  oscars, or even get a nomination,then you can make all the noise. As far as i am concerned both the Ghanaian movie industry and the Nigerian ones are all in developing stages and haven’t reached their peak yet,so give us a break!! The Ghana movie industry has come very far. As for seeing Nigerians in Ghanaian movies ,it is a two way thing. I see Nadia Buari , Van Vicker,Jackie Appiah,Yvonne Nelson ,Martha Ankomah , Majid Michel etc. in a lot of Nollywood movies too so please stop singing that song. One industry is not better than the other,we all have a long way to go.I even commend the Ghana Industry because they started the industry much later than Nollywood and we have caught up with Nollywood,so please spare us!!! who watches those Yoruba movies,anyways ?

    @Unknown, yes it is a big feat setting movie records in the uk because the last time i checked there weren’t much african inroads in the uk entertainment industry, i very much know had this record been set by a ghanaian movie then not only will all hell let loose, it will serve as a constant reminder to the nigerians that ghana is this and that, and i know that to u unknown it will be a well deserved feat. now lets get something clear here, i never said nollywood has arrived neither did i say nollywood is now on the world stage, all i said was that the world is talking about nollywood and not the ghanaian movie industry(which is a clear fact) and my point with that statment was to prove that nollywood was ahead of the ghanaian movie industry(another clear fact) so your statements of nollywood should prove whatever by winning an oscar,top us box office,compete with harry potter etc is totally off point, all that is exactly a scenario people tend to play out when they are disproved with facts and the next thing they do is oh have u done this and that, oh until u do this and that then u can’t tell me this and that, all this i call trying to save face, a million miles journey begins with a step,everything goes step by step, yes it is uk now, little by little and next will be usa, it is just a matter of time,u just have to begin from somewhere, so my dear yes it is a big feat for our movies to make it to the uk box office,the last time i checked no ghanaian movie has done that but two nigerian movies have done it. yes both nollywood and the ghanaian movie industries are in their developing stages but nollywood has definetly developed more than the ghanaian movie industry.i never said anything about both countries featuring in each others movies but if ur are talking about that then u should know that ghanaians featuring in nollywood are much more than vice versa,besides when was the last time a nollywood star featured in a ghanaian, especially a top star.seriously nollywood started before the ghanaian movie industry,are u kidding me, i thought u guys were claiming that the ghaian movie industry started before nollywood or do u guys just say that when it siuts u,so all of a sudden now it is nollywood that started first because u want it to support ur arguement,well it is not going to be that easy my dear, please go to ghananations.com, it stated that the ghanaian video movie industry started around the late 1980s.one thing i know is that those yoruba movies have a lot more non-nigerian audience than any language ghanaian movies.

    @Unknown, i forgot to address one thing, in what way have the ghanaian movie industry caught up with nollywood, is it in terms of marketing, distribution(even though our distribution network is shaky),theaters etc. making a movie as good as a hollywood movie does not mean ur movie industry has attained the hollywood level, it has to attain the hollywood level with the whole package, and about the stuff u said we should win an oscar,compete with harry potter, top usa box office etc before we can say anthing,ok since u guys said that ghana is better than nigerian and is fairing very well, then don’t make noise about it until u attain the level of development of the united states.

    you people can’t just leave ghana films alone. you nigerians brag too much. which of your filmmakers has won a BAFTA? being featured on CNN is nothing. anyone and anything with a proper pitch can have christian purefoy attending and giving it a CNN coverage. sinking sands was covered by BBC, sinking sands will be opening in UK and US mainstream cinemas, we have reall Hollywood stars starring in our films not washed out people stars. 

    its not like I’m in support of this film because Frank Raja, who is a NIGERIAN by the way is a theif of other peoples stories. he’s not ghanaian though, he’s nigerian.

    for crying out loud!! all Nigerians do is make noise. Bursting out was a copy of tyler perrys films, but to promote the premiere, they pitched genevieve nnaji to CNN and said CNN has profiled Genevieve Nnaji. Mirror boy I have not seen so I will not comment. Ije was a crappy movie with no proper direction for the story. with hype, you can make anything sell.  even stephanie Okereke topped nigerian box office with that god awful film she made called through the gl****. Horrible;e horrible film. 
    i wish we can place any nigerian film side by side with any film by Leila Djansi, Mr Kwaw Ansah Mr King Ampaw. Ije, mirror boy or figuruine cannot match any of their films. Nigerian films are full of hot air and hype, like what Frank Raja introduced into our industry with his movies.  we can have healthy disucssions or you peeps can stop de ghana nigeria thang already. its not necessary.

    @aisha, if nigerians make noise, then ghanaians blow trumpets, yes bursting out was a copy of tyler perry’s movie, but get this that copied idea was told in a different perspective, infact not only bursting out was a copy of tyler perry’s movie,even silent scandal was a copy of tyler perry’s movie but it was told in a different perspective,but look at ghanaian movies they don’t only copy the movie vabatim but the characters names aswell. if figurine wasn’t beter than any leila’s film, then how come it won best picture over leila’s i sing of a well at the 2010 amaa, i definetly know that jeta amata’s black gold and newton aduaka’s ezra is better than leila’s movies as well as kwaw ansah and king ampaw movies.when u say nigerian movies are full of hot air and hype do u mean the same hot air and hype shirley’s movies have.

    @flint,
     is it hakeem, vivica or those people Jeta puts in his films that your are comparing to Kimberly Elise? give me 1 film those people have carried or 1 prestigious award they have won.  what was their most recent film and how many scenes did they have? Please, Kimberly Elise is an A-list hollywood star. vivica does every crap movie that will pay her 2000 dollars. are any of your ije, mirror boy or jetas films even SAG films? no they are not.

    2. if figuirine was that good, why did it not win the bafta and I sing of a well did? i sing of a well did not win at AMAA because 1. it won the BEST OVERALL FILM 2. it will be bad, bad to make Leila Djansi win a best director award. its like giving speilberg a best director award against antoine fuqua. it will be very obvious. you have to let the little people come up. Its obvious Leila is good so AMAAs have to accommodate the up and coming ones. 

    3. until you see black gold, which fell off the wagon in its storyline, don’t say anything. black gold started well and became a story about mbong Amata. untill you see black gold, not the trailer, don’t talk. i have not seen ezra, untill then. 

    4. you have not heard me mention shirley because when I talk about filmmakers, i don’t consider her and her clinical, unrealistic movies in the same league as the films or filmmakers we are talking about here. the only difference between venus and other home video 9ja and shirleys films is the single part film and the proper english and proper looking people.  her films scenes are equally copied and not original. 

    at least we agree on something. rotflamo.

    @aisha, i will address all the points u brought up one by one. 1 how come u mentioned those three and didn’t mention the rest, what about billy zane,eric roberts,michael madesen,and tom sizemore, can u compare these four i mentioned to kimberly elise, please give me a break, and now i ask u in return to name one film kimberly have carried or one prestigeous award either her or jimmy have won, and please don’t mention those tyler perry movies or the naacp award becuase those are not acclaimed movies or awards, and if u must know the above four names i have mentione have all starred in very recent movies that i just don’t want to mention them all here but i will mentione one anyway, ENEMIES AMONG US which starred both billy zane and eric roberts. kimberly elise an A-list actress ha ha ha, my dear are u kidding me,wow this must be joke of the century,in which hollywod is kimberly elise an A-list actress, i don’t care if a movie is a sag or saggy movie, i have made my point which is to prove to u that there are nollywood movies that are as good oand infact better than the movies of the ghanaian filmmakers u asked me to point out a nollywood movie that is better than their movies. haven said that, jeta amata’sblack gold movie is a sag movie. 2 and if i sing of a well was that good why didn’t it win the ultimate price at amaa 2010. which i sing of a well won best overall film, the last time i checked the figurine won best picture, the last time i also checked jury prize award does not translet to best picture or best overall movie, the last time i checked again, shirley won best director not leila, the last time i also checked prestigeous award ceremonies such as amaa, oscars,bafta etc do not base there awards on sentiments,tom hanks won the oscars consecutively for the movies phyladelphia(1993) and forret gump(1994), the oscar jury didn’t say oh he won it last year let us give it to someone else this time. if leila is that good, how come she hasn’t won a best director or best picture nod at amaa or fespaco.
    3. my dear let me ask u a question, what did u think the whole point of the movie black gold was,did u for a second think that why it focused on ubong amata was because the movie had to have a hero( it even implied that in the trailer) to fight for justice for her people, haven’t u seen movies with that same concept, or u just chose to interprete it the way u want to so u can support ur line of arguement, well we will wait for the movie to come out first of which it will be coming to nigerian cinemas this fall,then we will see how it turns out and what critics think of it,believe me when i say we have top critics in nigeria who will run down ur movie at the slightest sign of mediocrity. i saw i sing of a well and after all the hyper and praises, it just ddin’t turn out as fantastic as it was made to be, with the bad casting and the 15th century british royal family acting which was so unafrican.i have also seen sinking sands and u know what, to some certain extent it was over exaggerated, i haven’t seen ties that bind so i don’t jave anything to say about it yet. 4 in this segement i don’t really have much to say here because it wasn’t what my point was all about. however leila is good but trust me nollywood has alot of top filmmakers that can knock her off her feet anytime anywhere, people like tunde kelani,izu ojukwu,kunle afolayan,mahmood ali-balogun,chinaeze anyaene,obi emeonye,lonzo nzekwe,mildred okwo,jeta amata,mak kusare,kenneth gyang etc.

    @aisha, i will address all the points u brought up one by one. 1 how come u mentioned those three and didn’t mention the rest, what about billy zane,eric roberts,michael madesen,and tom sizemore, can u compare these four i mentioned to kimberly elise, please give me a break, and now i ask u in return to name one film kimberly have carried or one prestigeous award either her or jimmy have won, and please don’t mention those tyler perry movies or the naacp award becuase those are not acclaimed movies or awards, and if u must know the above four names i have mentione have all starred in veryrecent movies that i just don’t want to mention them all here but i will mentione one anyway, ENEMIES AMONG US which starred both billy zane and eric roberts. kimberly elise an A-list actress ha ha ha, my dear are u kidding me,wow this must be joke of the century,in which hollywod is kimberly elise an A-list actress, i don’t care if a movie is a sag or saggy movie, i have made my point which is to prove to u that there are nollywood movies that are as good oand infact better than the movies of the ghanaian filmmakers u asked me to point out a nollywood movie that is better than their movies. haven said that, jeta amata’sblack gold movie is a sag movie. 2 and if i sing of a well was that good why didn’t it win the ultimate price at amaa 2010. which i sing of a well won best overall film, the last time i checked the figurine won best picture, the last time i also checked jury prize award does not translet to best picture or best overall movie, the last time i checked again, shirley won best director not leila, the last time i also checked prestigeous award ceremonies such as amaa, oscars,bafta etc do not base there awards on sentiments,tom hanks won the oscars consecutively for the movies phyladelphia(1993) and forret gump(1994), the oscar jury didn’t say oh he won it last year let us give it to someone else this time. if leila is that good, how come she hasn’t won a best director or best picture nod at amaa or fespaco.
    3. my dear let me ask u a question, what did u think the whole point of the movie black gold was,did u for a second think that why it focused on ubong amata was because the movie had to have a hero( it even implied that in the trailer) to fight for justice for her people, haven’t u seen movies with that same concept, or u just chose to interprete it the way u want to so u can support ur line of arguement, well we will wait for the movie to come out first of which it will be coming to nigerian cinemas this fall,then we will see how it turns out and what critics think of it,believe me when i say we have top critics in nigeria who will run down ur movie at the slightest sign of mediocrity. i saw i sing of a well and after all the hyper and praises, it just ddin’t turn out as fantastic as it was made to be, with the bad casting and the 15th century british royal family acting which was so unafrican.i have also seen sinking sands and u know what, to some certain extent it was over exaggerated, i haven’t seen ties that bind so i don’t jave anything to say about it yet. 4 in this segement i don’t really have much to say here because it wasn’t what my point was all about. however leila is good buttrust me nollywood has alot of top filmmakers that can knock her off her feet anytime anywhere, people like tunde kelani,izu ojukwu,kunle afolayan,mahmood ali-balogun,chinaeze anyaene,obi emeonye,lonzo nzekwe,mildred okwo,jeta amata,mak kusare,kenneth gyang etc.

    as for now, you are just grabbing at straws. I will not even debate kimberlys status with you. we all know who she is. all the people you mentioned are not in anybodys radar. i don;t even know who half of them are. if you don’t say titanic, I don’t even know Billy Zane. i don’t think you’ve watched Black Gold. if you have you won’t be saying these. its a train wreck. lol. you don’t want Tyler Perry or NAACP mentioned because you want to make an argument. what awards have those people you have listed  there won? oscar? 
    scorcese is one of the best, if not the best director, it took him years to win a best actor oscar because other people had to be allowed to win.
    That jury award was created for I sing of a well because of politics because that is the film that truly won all the awards. take it or leave it. it doesn’t change the fact.
    our filmmakers are better than yours. Frank Raja is yours not ours. bye.

    @aisha, yes i know u wouldn’t debate her status with me because i am infact stating the fact. keep telling urself that the names i mentioned are not in anybody’s radar as long as it can give u peace of mind, and like how many people know kimberly elise, i can confidently tell u that in hollywood and around the world, those name i mentioned are more popular and more successful than kimberly elise,yes i haven’t seen black gold yet, but one thing i know is that is it definetly going to be mind blowing and not what u make it out to be because u want ur line of arguement to be backed up, am not suprised, why would u think black gold to be a good movie since u are trying to make leila look like she makes better movies because i don’t see u saying oh this leila’s movie wasn’t so great because to u her movies infact are as good as that of spielberg’s. no u are wrong, i dont want tyler perry’s movies and naacp awards mentioned because the have been proved not to be acclaimed mvies and awards period, next time come up with a better point to play with my mind, aisha i never said any of them have won an award, did i, come aisha are u kidding me with that excuse dat scorcese had to be cheated out of his awards(because dat is exactly wat u are implying) because other people had to be allowed to win, oh please aisha u can come up with a better excuse next time.yeah right the jury ward category was created because of i sing of a well,amaa has over the years been expanding and getting their acts right little by little, so it is a sure fact that there would definetly be some changes to it as it progresses. ok so if we were to go by what u are saying then it is ok to say that maybe it is because of tunde kelani’s arugba that amaa stopped having only english movies in the best picture and director category,for ur information these are the categories that were not there since the inception of amaa in 2005 and has since been added, they are best nigerian movie(heart of africa award),best animation,and in 2010 jury award, so just accept the fact the i sing of a well( or should i say i sing of a flop) didn’t win either the best picture or director nod,and again if we should go by wat u are saying, then it is ok to say that the south african movie shirley adams which won this year’s amaa jury award was the overall winner,meaning it won over viva riva, sinking sands and the rest of the movies that were in competition this year. ur filmmakers are better than our filmmakers, ha ha ha, yeah right, keep consoling urself wit dat lie, u boast of one or two or three filmmakers,while we boast of more than a dozen of filmmakers,i can atleast name 12 top notch directors in nollywood, here they are izu ojukwu,kunle afolayan,tunde kelani,chinaeze anyane,mahmood ali-balogun,lonzo nzekwe,obi emelonye,jeta amata,mildred okwo,mak kusare,kenneth gyang,nyi akanni. how about u, they only filmmakers u boast of are leila,kwaw ansah,king paw etc isn’t this a clear indication that not only are our filmmakers better than urs but that our movie industry is more succesful than urs.yes i know frank rajah is nigerian but guess what he helped revive ur movie industry whether with copied storylines or not.

     Flint ,Please learn how to spell too as you type your rant .The word is ‘verbatim’ and not Vabatim.
     Look at who is calling the pot black? Nollywood copies Tyler perry’s movies and you spew crap about it being told from a different perspective. What kind of double standards are you? FYI..copying is copying,like plagiarism is plagiarism whether it was only a sentence that was lifted or an entire paragraph. Ever watch old Nollywood movie “the Break Up”.That whole movie plot is from the hollywood movie” two can play that game “and it is the exact same story line,would you say that movie “Break up” was being told from a different perspective? and there are countless Nollywood movies like that!!! do you want me to compile a list for you of all Nollywood movies that are a rip off other movies? Trust me,the whole GC website would not be enough to contains the list,because it is unending. Spare us the Nollywood is Original and a saint attitude because you guys do copy from everywhere too,left, right and center.. So how different is your so called ” top notch” nollywood movies,if all they are, is copies of hollywood stories ? Stop all the noise and double standards…As i said earlier,the Nollywood Movie industry is no better than the Ghanaian movie industry and FYI i do see folks like Omotola Jalade Ekeinde,Ramsey Noah Jr.,Genevieve Nnaji,Kalu whatever his name is and all those your top notch actors and actresses in Ghanaian movies. if Ghanaian movies were that inferior to Nollywood movies,why would the best of your actors and actresses want to play a role in them. Please stop ranting!  Mtseew!!

    @Unknown, please i want u to listen carefully to what i am about to say, this is a social network just like facebook and twitter where u don’t have to show whether u are a phd or masters degree holder, meaning that u can type in short hand form or make up any word that sounds like what u are trying to say, for example lol,gr8,dnt,dat,wat etc. so my dear making such spellings does not mean i don’t know the actual spelling of what i am saying but it just happens that i am writing it in the shortest or most similar way i can, now haven said that, since u are now a professor how come u didn’t see that i spelled “you” as “u”. now to the main point of my arguement, please my dear unknown,i believe being a professor where u are able to see ur so called spelling mistakes u can also read, now go back and read my reply to B.B, i never in anyway denied that nollywood isn’t guilty of copying, so my dear be very careful in choosing ur words,yes nollywod copies, i admit that,but one thing i know is dat nollywood does not copy as much as the ghanaian movie industry,if u placed a very kin eye on nollywood u will notice dat for the past 5 to 6yrs the level of plagiarism has drastically reduced while the reverse is the case with ghanaian movies, and like i earlier stated,if the idea is copied, it is told in a different perspective,look at hollywood, do u know how many movies are being copied every now and then, but get this,those copied ideas are told from a different perspective,example mob movies like goodfellas,the untochables,donie brasco etc these movies all have the same concept but told in different perspectives and directions,another good example will be avatar which had the same concept as dances with wolves but it was told in a different perspective and direction,another good exapme will be inception,matrix,and shutter island, and do u think if i were to mention all the copied ghanaian movies the computer system will be able to accomodate them.i will say it again, how many top nollywood stars act in ghana,yes omotola acted in ghana this year, besides omotola and and one or two others who else, but ur stars traffic to nollywood all the time, haven’t u seen hollywood stars in nollywood, i guess that answers ur question about why the feature in ghanaian movies.if i am ranting then u are trumpeting.

    listen people,some of your arguments make quite a lot of sense…most however are just plain stupid,and yeah i’m refering to ALL of you. The Ghana vs Nigeria thing wont help either industries so kindly cut the crap. Instead, please endeavour to support ALL our WORTHWHILE acts by buying original cds and watching their acts at the cinemas…Peace!
