When Chief Daddy was released in 2018, it was pleasing to watch, had genuinely funny scenes and even though it wasn’t perfect, it was loved and enjoyed by many. Sadly same can not be said of Chief Daddy 2.
Chief Daddy 2 dropped on Netflix today, January 1, 2022 and whew, it was a complete waste of time and star studded for nothing!!! Forgive me if I sound so angry but it really pissed me off.
The absolute hilarity and energy found in the original was almost completely nonexistent. It felt like it was written by an Asaba Nollywood writer.
Of course, the production was great, beautiful costumes, very good actors; well no surprise there, it’s an EbonyLife film, we expected absolutely no less but it had no story line whatsoever; very disappointing.
The sub-storylines were too many, and some seemed unnecessary. In all honesty, having to sit through to the end was torture and boring but someone’s got to for a detailed review of it.
Some of characters lost their original touch, eg the lawyer Remi Castle’s role was reduced to a dumb pity party member of the family instead of taking up her role as a sound Lawyer….We have no idea why Ireti and Dami Baggio seemingly abandoned their good natured purposes……we weren’t told how Tinu and Teni ended up having a joint business with Nike Williams…or clarity on their love triangle with the lawyer…Ini Edo’s role wasn’t felt at all…same for Donatus and Pat….even the introduction of Broda shaggy into the movie literally added no color, just bleh and then the trip to Dubai…gosh!!…
Writers didn’t do justice to ‘Chief Daddy 2, going for broke’s script at all, thus making it an embarrassment to Nollywood and we deserve an apology for being served such on the first day of a new year for that matter.
