Although fate may defeat the efforts of virtue to avert misfortune, it cannot deprive us of the power to endure it with equanimity.
Funke Akindele’s production outfit, Scene One Production, in conjunction with Adekaz Production Limited, presents a new Yoruba movie titled: Sababi Eda (Fate).
It is fully subtitled in English.
Sababi Eda depicts the life of a single mother (Funke Akindele) and her struggle with fate.
She used to be a tomboy in the village before she got engaged and relocated to the city.
However fate played a fast one on her in her journey of life and she could not avoid it.
Her fiancée eloped with another woman, leaving her to cater for their only son.
She moved back to the village to start a new life and established herself as a fashion designer there.
Sometimes life has a cruel sense of humour, giving you the thing you have always wanted at the worst time possible.
This aptly describes the turn of event when she met Odunlade Adekola.
Sababi Eda is a story well-narrated by Funke Akindele.
It is full of intrigue, suspense and humour.
And the fact that it is not in our power to love or hate for the will in us is overruled by fate.
It parades a robust cast including Madam Saje, Alhaji Adenrele, Ayanfe Adekunle (Monsuru), Razaq Owokoniran (Wazo) and many more.
This Yuletide, Sababi comes to the cinema close to you for your delight.
