The movie, Prophetess was produced by Niyi Akinmolayan, premiered March 28 and started screening in cinemas nationwide on Thursday, April 2.
However, the movie has generated mixed reactions on social media as some viewers have immensely criticize the movie.
Cinema Pointer, a movie critic on Instagram shared a review of the movie via its official Instagram page. The Prophetess was met with no good words.
They wrote, “Not Recommended. Chaotic and noisy, ‘The Prophetess’ is One Hundred and Forty Four minutes of nonsense.”
The negative review pushed others movie viewers to share their honest opinions of the movie and the lead actress, Toyin Abraham, was verbally attacked.
However, Toyin has reacted the criticism, she slammed Cinema pointer, stating that they are always condemning her movies. She also claimed the critic is someone who envy her success and doing all to bring her down.
The actress also dared the writer of the faceless brand to reveal their identity.
“I can bet my life that you’re someone in the industry that does not like me cause I’m doing great and you cannot stop me. Any movie I act in or produce, you always trash it. I’m sure you thought I produced prophetess but no I didn’t produce, I only acted in it. I have my audience and market, I keep feeding them.
My darling, making 130 million during the pandemic and end sars is not a joke and being number one on Netflix for weeks is not a fluke. Prophetess is about Nigeria, for Nigerians and made by Nigerians, (Mr Niyi Akinmolayan)and you say bad things about it. Cinemapointer, whoever you are and whoever paid you, I leave you to your conscience.
And lastly, like I said, I am a brand and I know my market and I will never stop feeding my market. Peace and love.
NB: we won’t bribe you the way others are bribing you, so keep saying trash; but let God judge you. If you want me to really believed your reviews, my darling show your face.”
