The ‘Ikorodu Bois’ make skits/mimick films of two or more scenes from a music video or movie with their smartphones and other materials they can get their hands on; and work with scenaries they can easily access. They are creative indeed. If you have not seen or heard of them, you can check them out on YouTube, Instagram or Twitter and you would be glad you did.
