Africans and more specifically Nigerians have superstitions that they believe hold weight. The social media conversations about “ my village people” cannot go unnoticed; this ongoing trend refers to a series of unfortunate events that occurr as a result of supernatural forces engineered by people in their village.
So far, it seems everyone has a story to tell about when and how their village people were after them and that is what makes the perfect ingredient for success of Bovi’s latest movie, My Village People.
My Village People is a comical yet thrilling movie that addresses some of the superstitions about tradition in Nigeria. In the movie starring Bovi as the protagonist, Prince is a free-spirited bachelor who visits his village for his sister’s wedding. Amidst the excitement, he forgets cautionary tales and loses his guard, the circumstances that occur lead to a series of supernatural and unfortunate events including losing his job.
In Bovi’s latest radio interviews he sheds light on why this plot was chosen, he simply explained the relationship between bad news and people from the village and why it is important to have such conversations. “ Everyone goes through unfortunate events that they believe are beyond their control, it is important to have these conversations so that people know that they’re not alone in their struggles, everyone is going through something”, said the superstar comedian. In such a time as now where mental health issues are prevalent , it is important to humor the struggles that people face in their lives and this movie does just that.
