In Dear Affy, director Samuel Olatunji catches the viewers’ attention by making them curious to find the man responsible for Affy’s pregnancy as her search for the truth leads to funny moments.
Kehinde Bankole plays the main character who calls off her wedding with her man (played by Enyinna Nwigwe) when she sees a message on his phone that brings back his ugly past to hunt them both.
In a bit to forget that ugly incident, Affy goes clubbing with her friends and ends up getting so drunk that she passes out.
When tell-tale signs point to pregnancy, Affy conducts a test that confirms her worst fear. More alarming is the fact that she doesn’t know who had his way with her when she was unconscious.
Affy decides to find who is responsible as her engagement with Mike begins to fall apart.
The best thing about ‘Dear Affy’ is the combination of comedy and suspense to entertain and also teach an important lesson to does who jump to conclusions, whenever they are facing challenges.
Another important point in the movie is the importance of communication in a relationship as Mike should have told Affy the financial crisis he had and also at work, but rather kept it to himself which ended up becoming something he regrets.
Actor Williams Uchemba as one of Mike’s friends provides the necessary funny moments to remove the tension in the film and also Faithia Williams contributes to the comedy.
Kehinde Bankole shows that she is a good actress by succeeding in showing the feeling and emotions of a woman in her position.
Enyinna Nwigwe as Mike is convincing in playing a guy who tries to run away from his playboy past but gets caught up in it which may likely push away the love of his life.
Singer Teni also adds to the comedy, in a scene that has her beating Affy and her driver (Odunlade Adekola). She does it well that it brings about uncontrollable laughter from the cinema hall.
