“Battle on Buka Street” Talks about Polygamy and Food Supremacy in Same Family

  • Post author:

“Battle on Buka Street” follows a multi-generational feud between two arms of a family, and it begins when a man (Nkem Owoh) makes the fatal but common error of marrying two wives (he didn’t even stop there), Ezinne (Tina Mba) and Asake (Sola Sobowale). They are constantly at loggerheads with each other, and rather than learn to live together, this conflict grows and matures to involve even their children and grandchildren.

The origin of this rivalry is related carefully, with Funke Akindele’s voiceover keen to make sure you do not miss key moments of the war, like how they happen to give birth to daughters on the same day, and how these daughters, Yejide (Funke Akindele) and Awele (Mercy Johnson), inherit this rivalry completely.

The movie is then able to end on a high note, charming to the audience and satisfactory to every member of cast, and only then will viewers recognise they have completed a film that almost never waned in quality. Could it be better? Probably, for the best artists know there is always something to improve on. Has there been better? Not this year. Nollywood has saved its best for last, and we must now hope that Funke Akindele’s political commitments do not prove too strenuous to prevent her from clearing the bar with another similarly excellent effort in the near future.
