I was pissed off at @udoilo, @Nwankpa_A and @MTechLaw that they didn't send me a ticket to watch the movie #4thRepublic, but the money I just spent was worth it.

I'll desist from gifting you a full synopsis, but you can watch a short preview here -
Both @HenshawKate and @LindaEjiofor put in star shifts, and the movie did something that a lot of Nigerian art ought to do.

First, it covered the gender related issue women face when running for a political office. Remember @naijavote's excellent book?

Those issues are real.
Just imagine this: Mabel King’s opponent extended an offer for her to be his 3rd wife after he won; her party members undermined her; her lawyers disrespected her authority.

Of course, this is #Nigeria where every woman is either a prostitute, or just a pussy to be fucked... 🙄
