Review

Nikita is an Afro performer at a hot-spot in a suburb. Though she entertains at a place where Randy men make the most customers, she keeps her self-respect. That is not what anyone thinks. Especially not Casper, a middle-aged British business tycoon, once divorced by his wife after she cheated and sold him out to his partner, running him down and broke; he knows a lot about treacherous women than the nice ones. As a matter of fact, there’s no nice woman as far as Casper is concerned so he keeps his high libido in check with a couple “understanding” women, keeps it casual, flingy.

Cassper witnesses Nikita’s violent reaction to a customer who attempts to touch her during a performance. Intrigued by her rather exasperating dance and speech about unsolicited groping, Cassper gets his driver Smart (Nkem Owoh) to secure a private meeting with him. Unaware and shocked to discover Cassper’s true intentions (a weekend of uninterrupted sexcapades. Nikita becomes difficult and overbearing.

The Small Chops story, written by Chika Ike, probably set out to deliver a near-perfect interracial love story garnished with a feminist point of view. Unfortunately, its execution is a hot mess that’ll leave you wondering what the writer’s motives were.

The acting shows a poorly researched script as even the dancing and stripping of Nikita’s character is not forceful and passionate as one would expect, a bit of an eye-sore if you please.
