Last night, 12,000 people watched the premiere of The Men’s Club season 3 finale titled “My heart belongs to you.” And at the time of writing this post, less than 24 hours after, the views had increased to about 176,000. Not bad at all Red TV.
We did see Aminu’s mishap coming but we like that Patrick has turned a new leaf. Yet, a tap of Aminu’s shoulder as a show of remorse wasn’t good enough. Much as we like this show, I think it trivialised the Hausa culture a bit. Some Nigerians are still big on respect, and let’s not talk about Tunmi’s thigh-high slit dress which she wore to meet Aminu’s dad. And lest we forget, how is it possible that Aminu did not visit the tank farm?
Perhaps the most relatable event in “The Men’s Club” season 3, episode 12, through the finale is Tayo’s realisation that he might have lost Tiara. It’s a reality that the three words ‘I Love You’ mean a lot to some people and to their partners, their actions should be enough proof of what they feel. Lanre is still the least favourite character but we were impressed by the heart-to-heart talk he had with Tayo.
Now to Louis. Did anyone else wonder what he was doing when he carried Lola out of the bedroom with a dress in hand? Wasn’t the whole idea to get her changed? And shouldn’t that normally happen in the bedroom? By the way, for an interior designer, Lola did a shoddy job with the furnishing of her flat. It’s just too cramped. We are glad they can now save up to get a bigger home.
Nonetheless, we have nothing but love for Louis. Bravo to the writer of his vows. On the flipside, Tayo’s conversation with Hadiza the lamest. The costumier of the boys did a phenomenal job styling the boys for the ceremony. We would however have liked to see Efa Iwara in all white. Guessing he would have looked as immaculate and debonair as Ayola Ayoolola. As for the female costumes, nothing exciting except for Hadiza. She almost stole the show.
After all said, we love happy endings!
