her friend who has been unfairly fired because he is an albino.
Throwing Jimi Disu back into the ring to battle his old law firm.

Starring:  Funsho Adeolu, Bimbo Manuel, Nobert Young, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Ade Laoye, Carol King, Damilola Ogunsi.


Verdict: Exceptional! Powerful! Fantastic! Nollywood
brings its A-Game to reckon. ‘The Tribunal’ is a conceited chest-beating
exhibition of acting prowess- A true Nollywood marvel. Beware. The
acting, the passion, and the fervour; will blow you into a million
pieces. They will have to mop you off the floor.

With near perfect execution ‘The Tribunal is exceedingly satisfying. It
pleases its audience from start to finish. Not a dull moment to be had.
And so, looking around, one will be hard-pressed to find a single
dissatisfied face in the audience.

Rather, what you see is an audience captivated in a symphony of
absorption, paying rapt attention in beautiful silence. One can almost
feel the intensity. And taste the anticipation. And then, without
warning, thunderous laughter and machine-gun clapping sporadically fill
the hall. Yet, ‘The Tribunal’ is no comedy.

It tells a very serious story with simplicity and forcefulness all at
once. ‘The Tribunal’ is a solid drama. A definite “must-see”, with
boastful precision, Kunle Afolayan manages to turn simple legal
proceedings into tempestuous Mortal Kombat; a fight to the death.

Absolutely recommended. Bravo!
