In Mercy hostel, our room was
on the ground floor; the last room before the back gate, which was almost
always locked. We lived in a self contain apartment, with a bathroom wide enough
to contain just one person per time and the kitchen was attached to a small corner
of the room, right beside the entrance, making it impossible to prepare a meal
without your neighbors having a whiff of it.
The ritual was almost
impossible to perform as my mum was just my mum. I was gone and Chinwe, her
favorite child, was back from boarding house. Mummy was too occupied to
remember that an Nkechi existed. I mean, how does a mother forget her own child?
Well, only my mum had the answer to that question and even as her lady-child, I
did not have the balls to find it out.
Wives on Strike: The
Revolution, is a dramedy sequel of Wives on Strike part 1. It features an
interesting blend of comic characters and a bunch of Nollywood legends like:

Omoni Oboli and a host of others. Omoni Oboli expertly wrote, produced and
directed this hilarious and strongly-messaged driven film.
