Nollywood actress Toyin Abraham has stirred up mixed reactions among fans and industry colleagues with her recent hint about a potential ‘Alakada’ movie series.
The popular actress took to social media to drop hints about the possibility of extending the beloved ‘Alakada’ movie franchise into a series, leaving fans both excited and skeptical.
Sharing a clip from the movie, she wrote, ” Hmmmm!! I have an idea.. Should we do Alakada Series and put it up on a streaming platform? Should I play the lead, use an upcoming actor or a new face as the lead? Thinking out loud. Let’s decide together since my uncle is in Nugeria #alakada”
Fans of the ‘Alakada’ franchise eagerly shared their excitement, expressing their anticipation for more laughter and entertainment. They praised Toyin Abraham’s comedic talent and encouraged her to explore the series format, believing it would provide a longer-lasting and more immersive experience
One fan wrote, ” Alakada without Toyin Abraham is nothing. Add Bimbo Adeboye to it. Make her your very close friend/ally. We will be glad to watch”
Another one wrote, ” Please add Kiekie sure she is going to make it more fun”
However, there were also skeptics who voiced concerns, as they urged Toyin Abraham to carefully consider the direction of the project to ensure it maintains the unique appeal that captivated audiences in the first place.
One fan wrote, ” Something new pls. Alakada reloaded, alakada the calling or whatever. Kindly put out a master piece and let ALAKADA maintain its glory and stance”
Another one wrote, ” @toyin_abraham wait first o. Is that @doris_simeon_ who I used to crush on? That your movie was funny and was a good watch. Frankly speaking, you have extended it to the limit. Do something else. Better still, on do slapstick comedies once in a while. Your acting and production level should be for more serious epics. You can do it with your talent and resources. Sky is the limit.”
Another one wrote, ” Drop the idea Toyin and don’t be carried away by those saying go ahead. You’ve done too much with Alakada already. Move forward with better creativity and avoid what many will see as copycat (the other popular series by your senior colleague). Already, there are valid insinuations that even your big screen movies are becoming monotonous in script and delivery; so I advice you improve on that aspect and not a knee-jerk attempt to start an Alakada series. Do you have the energy and content so sustain such a projet without it becoming boring and monotonous? But then, it’s your call.”
Another one wrote, ” Aunty mi Toyin, please dont. There are quite a number of other educative and interesting areas you can explore. I know series is the in-thing for you guys just like Odunlade, Fathia, Flakky, Wunmi, Femi, Muyiwa, Morili, Afod all have series but if you must go that route, pls start something the young and the old would look forward to. Not just comical but educative. All love”
