Africans in australia have described this film as the best nollywood film they have seen.osuofia in london is popular but the quality is nonsense compared to gossip nation, i saw the film myself in bankstown -Australia and it was excitement after excitement, sad and funny at the same time, lots of characters unlike in many nollywood films where 4 people will start and finish a whole film. the fillm is directed by mike kang, it was written and produced by our nigerian music star MR SCRIM ( daniel okoduwa), it's a must see.
