Title: Mandela: Long Walk
Genre: Biography, Drama, History
Starring: Idris Elba, Naomie Harris, Terry Pheto
Synopsis: Powerful is the only world to describe both the man and the Movie. It is difficult to be anything other than inspired by the life led by Nelson Mandela. The South African freedom fighter-turned-president, and endured a life time of hardship because of his constant fight for the rights of blacks in his country. Mandela lobg walk to freedom tells his story in a dramatic and moving way.
We meet Mandela (Idris Elba) in his early years as a lawyer, representing the poor and powerless black in his community. He was not a political figure, but the African National Congress (ANC) could see the charism he carried and wanted him to be a leader in his organisation.
Finally, the daily oppression he experienced made him join ANC ranks and his path of confrontation with the government was set. These were defiant times in South Africa and the infamous sharpville massacre only hardened the resolve of the ANC to make change happen.
When Mandela and his cohorts began blowing up government buildings, his days were numbered. Arrested and convicted, he was sentenced to life imprison on Robben Island. This was a man who had every reason to harbor hatred and bitterness, but that was not how he was made up. His resolve was to fight for the rights of all black South Africans and his personal circumstances played no part in that.
We are given an incredible insight into his prison life and the heart breaking lacking of content with his wife and family. When the worldwide cresando of support forced the government to release and negotiate with Mandela, the man who emerged was a ready made statesman who wanted to rebuild the country. And revenge was to play no part in that.
Elba is quite striking in his portrayal. He makes you feel as if you are there watching Mandela’s life unfold. And Naomie Harris, who plays Winnie Madikizela is very convincing as the loving wife then very dangerous. This ushered in a second wife. Mandela: Longwalk to freedom

Published

on

The decade in view is between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2019.
1. Fall by Davido (153 million views): The song is the biggest cross-over Nigerian pop song ever. It charted on Billboard’s digital airplay chart. The weirdness is how the song began charting in the US two years after its release. Cardi B also leaked an unreleased remix to the song.
2.Way Maker by  Sinach (136 million views): This is the biggest Nigerian cross-over song ever. It is sung in churches across the world and performed by Kanye West’s Sunday Service Choir.
3.Pana by Tekno (116 million views): In 2016, this song was huge in the US – especially the major cities. Ebro Darden confirmed it in a chat with Davido on Ebro In The Morning circa 2018.
4.Johnny by Yemi Alade (111 million views): This was the biggest pop song by a female Nigerian artist in the past decade. It also catapulted Yemi Alade into superstardom.
5.Mad Over You by Runtown (98 million views): This was the song that defined an entire era of Nigerian music. This era was the heavy Ghana-influenced sound of 2016. It was also the biggest song of 2016.
6. If by Davido (97 million views): ‘Fall’ might have been the biggest cross-over song from Davido’s immense 2017 run, but ‘IF’ started that run.
7. Personally by P-Square (95 million views): This was one of the final mega hits of P Square’s run.
8. Do Like That by Korede Bello (89 million views): A surprise on the list, considering it’s not even close to being Bello’s biggest song.
9. Come Closer by Wizkid  (86 million views): This was the second collaboration between Wizkid and Drake. The song was slightly lukewarm in Nigeria, but it was a pivotal part of ‘afrobeats to the world.’
10. On The Low by Burna Boy (85 million views): After Burna’s run with his sixth studio project, Outside, this was his follow-up single and boy, did it blow up?
11.Kontrol by Maleek Berry (76 million views): Despite Maleek Berry’s 2017 run, this is another surprise on the list.
12.Collabo by P-Square  (75.5 million views): This was a power collaboration in Nigerian music. Don Jazzy ran a hook with longtime pals, P Square. They were also dramatic in the music video – three men obsessing over a beautiful woman.
13. Bank Alert by P-Square  (75.3 million views): This was another one of the final hits P Square had.
14. FIA by Davido (71 million views): In Nigeria, this was arguably Davido’s biggest hit of 2017 – it was as if the song stayed true to its title. Upon release, it went nuclear.
