This movies has addressed some points about Africans living abroad

In the present day, many African men abroad believe getting married to a woman in their home country is the best option in terms of fidelity and longevity of the marriage. This was championed by the fact that many African ladies abroad tend to adopt the culture of having so much right and power over their man, as well as not submitting totally to a man. However, this has shown not to be always true as this is determined by the kind of person involved. Zara was a good girl based in London, but Teju was the evil that did not allow the relationship of Zara and Folarin to thrive successfully. There have been so many cases like this between Africans abroad: snatching each other’s partner and infidelity.

Folarin went on to bring a girl from his home country, unfortunately, for him; the girl was willing to explore the whole of London through prostitution. She eventually turned Folarin’s house into a hotel, where she attends to her customers at night when Folarin is at work for Night duty. Going back to your home country to get married is not always the best option as there are still responsible African ladies abroad.

As for Teju- We have many Teju’s abroad, who had denied their wives and kids in Africa just to get a stay abroad. It always boomerang for such individuals. The Movie Zara has passed a lot of message: especially not to always trust what people say to you, finding the truth is really important before making your decisions. Also, never allow a friend have a say in your relationship, it can be precarious.
