Which of these film titles will attract you more: Akuti in America, Shakamu in America? 

Based on the controversy that has continued to surround the relationship of two top politicians with the US, one will not be too surprised if a Nollywood tortoise soon produces a film – or more – around it.

In recent years, the status of each of them in the God’s own country has made tongues to wag.

Understandably the first has in the past weeks been more in the news in this respect, having emerged as the biggest opponent of the sitting or standing presido in the coming elect-war – sorry, election!

The issue involved on either side is not the topic of this reflection. But should the smart producer solicit your advice in terms of which of these titles he should go for, what will you tell him or her? Which of these film titles will attract you more: ‘Akuti in America’, ‘Shakamu in America’?
