On Ajayi Crowther Street

On Ajayi Crowther Street

0 Ratings

  On the noisy Ajayi Crowther Street in Lagos, neighbours gather to gossip, discuss noise complaints, and faithfully head to church each Sunday. But beneath the surface lies a hidden world of clandestine love affairs, hidden pregnancy, spiritual quackery and hypocrisy, that threatens to destroy the community from within. On Ajayi Crowther Street peels back the curtains on the lives of Reverend Akpoborie and his family, to reveal a tumultuous world full of secrets and lies. His only son, Godstime, is struggling to hide his sexuality from his parents whilst his daughter Keturah must hide the truth of her pregnancy by her pastor boyfriend to preserve her and her family’s image. But it is the Reverend himself who hides the darkest secret of them all, as his wondering eye lands on Kyauta, their young live-in maid.

In BvS, Alfred and Bruce discuss the existence of the White Portuguese, and says "what if he's not a "HE", it could be a Phantasm". From the Mask of the Phantasm, the Phantasm was a woman and she exist in the DCEU. Great easter egg by Zack. @fukujang062 #ReleaseTheSndyerCut https://t.co/nTnRoOtzV2
