Highlights

It Becomes Ridiculous In The Best Way

Bisi is a scene-stealing character. Her interactions with Nonso, before and after she believes she swallowed his engagement ring, is pure comedy. And as someone who doesn’t laugh that often when watching scripted or live stand-up, let me be clear, Bisola Aiyeola will make you laugh. Granted, it will be because of how ridiculous things get as she hopes to cash in on that ring to make up for her feeling like Nonso wasted her time. But, the situations Apaa put her through and how she plays it out will make you audibly laugh at least once.

On The Fence

While Nonso and Chioma Are Cute, Bisi’s Antics Eclipses Them

The problem with Bisi being so funny is that it eclipses Nonso and Chioma. They’re cute and all, but you don’t get to know them well enough to get butterflies or anything like that. Chioma is sweet and clearly not a gold digger like Nonso. As for Nonso, he seems nice and all and perhaps has money, but between knowing very little about them and being kept on a need-to-know basis about their relationship, it makes the romance part of this romantic comedy weak.
