For Bernie Mac

Bernard Jeffrey McCullough (October 5, 1957August 9, 2008),

This post is a memorial tribute to Bernie Mac, the American actor and comedian who was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago.

I never saw his acts as a stand-up comedian, because I only saw his comedies.

May his soul rest in peace and may the Almighty God Jehovah comfort his bereaved family.

Evanescence and My Chemical Romance have a few hundred vote lead over the Rolling Stones who are currently 10th on the list. Over 69,000 votes have been cast for 63 groups or solo acts -- only Presley has garnered more than 10% of the ballots.

Girls Gone Wild and Joe Francis Are Vindicated AGAIN

Girls Gone Wild and Joe Francis Are Vindicated AGAIN

Ronke Ojo's "Gbajumo" is A Classic Yoruba Comedy

Ronke Ojo was at her best in this Yoruba comedy It was produced by Ronke Ojo and directed by Saheed Balogun.

The movie featured top Yoruba movie stars, from Saheed Balogun to Kayode Odumosu and from Rachael Oniga to Eniola Olaniyan. Seyi Ogunde acted well as the husband of "Ayoka" in London.

The movie was shot at locations in Nigeria and the UK.
The scenes in the village in Western Nigeria were well shot and the scenes in London were good. The performance of the cast was good. The cameramen did very well.

Ronke Ojo who played the leading role of "Ayoka", the semi-literate Yoruba village beauty also wrote the story. The exposé on the Nigerian visa racketeering in the UK was a good plot in the serio-comic movie.

I found "Gbajumo" more entertaining than "Osuofia in London" and with a better cast too.

The title of the movie should have been "Ayoka" and not "Gbajumo". "Ayoka" would have beem more popular among fans of Yoruba movies.

I give "Gbajumo" two thumbs up and five stars.
