The film, Blackberry, written and produced by Adio Majester and Directed by Abbey Lanre is another package from Wastayo Films Nigeria Limited.
Blackberry tells the story of a young struggling boy, who later grew up to become a talented Fuji musician in person of Remi Aluko. Remi is a real life celebrity Fuji Musician.
As a showbiz artiste, which he also acted in the film, Remi didn’t see anything wrong in accepting a gift of Blackberry phone from one of his overwhelmed fans, who felt like appreciating the musician’s talent but has run out of cash at the event.
However, the fan is a member of a notorious armed robbery gang, which invaded a home and carted away millions of naira, the Blackberry phone and killed their victim. The phone was eventually traced and found out to be with the popular musician. Aluko was eventually arrested and went through torture for an offence he did not commit in a police cell.
To discover what eventually happened after this, lovers of Nigerian films would need to get a copy of the film.
One of the flaws of the film is the picture quality, which is below standard at this material time. Also, the phone used as Blackberry is of low standard, one would have expected a better phone in modern films.
The party scene, where the musician was dashed the Blackberry, was obviously done in a hurry. Apart from the seat of the armed robbery gang, no other seat was at the party and no money was sprayed the musician.
Also, it was wrong for Wasiu Alabi Pasuma, another Fuji artiste in the film, to advise Remi to give such a gift to his manager or someone else in the future. He should have advised him to do away with such gifts.
The movie is really not properly recorded as there was noise in some of the scenes.
Blackberry featured the likes of Dayo Amusa, Remi Aluko, Wasiu Alabi, Odunlade Adekola, Kareem Adepoju and other notable actors.
