3. Love Story

"Tiwa's Baggage" is a well interpreted love story.

It tells the story of Tiwa, a young woman who is abandoned by her lover after he finds out she is pregnant for him.

Starting life afresh, she moves into a new neighbourhood and her new neighbour is a kind man, who offers his support and friendship throughout her pregnancy.

Gradually and believably, the two build a friendship and finally become lovers.

Tiwa is that woman somewhere, who is dealing with self esteem issues and has been made to believe that as a single mother, no man would want her 'baggage.'

She also represents some women who assume that having a child for a man automatically means he won't up-and-leave.

Somewhere along the line, Tiwa's ex reappears, all sorry and ready for a new beginning with Tiwa and his daughter.

As expected, Tiwa's insecurities rear its ugly head and she is faced with making a tough decision and choosing between two men who claim to love her.

4. The Soundtrack

One of the things that make "Tiwa's Baggage" memorable is its use of the perfect soundtrack to perfect pivotal scenes.

Bisola Aiyeola's "Turn off the Light" comes on during Tiwa and Lolu's first kiss and it does a good job of breathing life into the scene, and creating an emotional experience for the viewers.

5. The Supporting Cast

Remi and McNwizu are not the only ones who are at their best in "Tiwa's Baggage." Despite Ronke Oshodi-Oke's kind of unnecessary long screen time, she is perfect as that nosy aunt, who thinks they are entitled to make decisions for every member of their family.

Bolanle Ninolowo is good and believable as Olly. He doesn't try to hard to deliver his character. He simply does his job.

Written, produced and directed by Biodun Stephen "Tiwa's Baggage" is currently showing on Iroko TV.
