Forgive my rudeness! But I would really appreciate it if Film makers in Nigeria try to be different at least for once. Is it too much to ask??
For colored girls was originally done by Tyler Perry.. Pheeew!!

For coloured girls is originally a stage play by ntozake shange. Tyler Perrys movie is based on the play, which was written in the 70s so it is a classic not a remake of a poor movie.

kunle said...

lobatan! so tyler perrys movie is based on the play?? So anyone quoting the movie should take several seats.
