 My rating is: 75%

 Should you watch it: Yes

 Performance of the Actors:  Mike is one of my favorite actors in Nollywood. I really have to say that this role surprised me. I feel that in the past he has been type cast because he has the "angry" "spoiled brat" face that he usually does all the time. This film was different although slowing his speech may have on purpose to portray the character as a wise thoughtful man his expression and emotions in this film were on point. He was perfect for the role. As usual Patience was awesome. I love this woman in any role she plays. I think her acting brings out the best in the other actors making it for a good film. It's a good story line and could have been left there, but in true Nollywood fashion there is a part 3&4 under a different name. No spoilers this time around for sure worth your time and money.
