New money told a very heart touching and beautiful story of how one could sleep poor and welcome to great wealth. It was about a young girl who was single handedly trained by her mom, who never wanted to tell her that her dad was extremely wealthy for fear, that she might choose her dad over her, and go over to leave in wealth and affluence. She had to lie to her daughter that her dad was dead. A kind of funny twist to the story with Falz the bad guy doing what he knows how to do best, entertain and make his viewers smile. He did put up a good show as usual and it was a nice movie.
The Director Tope Oshin did put out a good yet funny story, one that made everyone laugh and wonder why the lead actor Toun “Jemima Osunde” had to play naïve to Falz the bad guy. The cast and crew selected were really good and did fit in well into their roles. There was a good choice of locations chosen and it was hard to tell which part of the city some scenes were shot. They also made a nice decision with the choice of costumes and the background songs from Falz just made the movie even better, everyone could just sing along and smile as they watched.
A sneak into this Nigerian movie, so the movie started out by showing us where Toun worked in a Super market on the Island, there was a man who came to the store to buy products and kept starring at her, when she finished scanning his products, told her to keep the change and wanted to touch her chic, she felt really insulted by that and went after the man to return the little change he had offered her. He kept smiling and was so happy to have come so close to her. He introduced her to his PA and driver like she was interested and they drove off. Little did she know that the man she spoke rudely to was her father, who she never seen before, because her mother lied to her that he was dead. Days later a lady comes to see her mother and herself and gives her a tab, to watch the video request of her dad. He had a made a last wish and had handed over his entire empire to her, as the new CEO of Audere group. In just one click Toun became a billionaire and was offered a new home, new latest range rover sports with a driver and a magnificent office and company.
There was a big problem for her as she couldn’t comprehend why her mum would lie to her all her life and allowed her miss the opportunity of spending time with her dad, due to her selfishness. Now she had missed knowing who exactly her dad really was, and only saw him briefly which broke her heart even more. She felt sad because even the first encounter with her dad wasn’t a pleasant one as she was rude to his kind fatherly gesture, but the truth was that she had no clue. Toun had her own dreams of becoming a great fashion designer and she was about to lose all that to being the new CEO of Audere group, something she had never imagined, or thought of. For her she was worried that she wouldn’t be able to control the company and that she might do a bad job at it, but fortunately she proved them wrong and handled the company perfectly well, but her heart was still in her fashion dreams, she wanted both worlds which would have being so difficult to have. You will need to see this movie to see how everything turned out for her good and the wise decisions she had to face as she battled with her wicked uncle and son who wanted to take over the company.

To my verdict I would say that “New Money” deserves an 8/10, because they had a nice storyline, production, cast, costumes and background song. Most of the viewers enjoyed the comedy and drama, making the viewer’s demands for more even after the movie ended. One act for me who really killed it was Falz the bad guy, his mannerism, attitude and composure, made everyone laugh all through the movie. Most people couldn’t help but wonder why Toun was with Falz and why she couldn’t see that she was being used all along. To all the drama and comedy lovers, watching “New money” would be an exciting and fun way to relax this weekend.
