The Peter Landesman-produced film, Concussion has and is still drawing a lot of attention since it pre-release, especially the main character; a Nigerian doctor (Bennet Omalu), a role played convincingly well (or so many believe) by Hollywood star actor Will Smith.
However, amongst the several criticism the movie suffered, the fact that a number of Africans and Nigerians are of the opinion that Will Smith did not pull off the African accent successfully, seems to stand out.
To this effect, Nigerian novelist, satirist and writer, John Elnathan in a satirical video decided to refer to Will’s much talked about accent as a “Nigerian accent with a concussion” which Smith himself seems to agree with on his appearance on The Daily Show.
