Review

Nigerian Prince next in-line is torn in between conforming to tradition or love. He must not marry until he becomes king as tradition states. As for the love of his life, age is no longer on her side.

We all have our expectations of films that deal with tradition and culture preservation. We expect that permeation of absolute ‘epicness’ and a deep cultural tone, but from the trailer, The King’s Cross cannot be boxed into one genre; it is a traditional film that deals with modern day issues and people.

In a modern world where indigenous African cultures, traditional beliefs and practices are gradually becoming extinct, Nollywood actor cum producer, Alawiye, is still of the belief that African traditions are a part and parcel of our total existence as Africans, which is why he shared this belief in his new movie, The King’s Cross.
