I am yet to find anything original on the multiple TV channels we have on all these African cables. If the storyline of our movies are not stolen, we will be caught forcing to sound like someone else (fake accents) and adopt to the identity of others.
What is so good about any of these reality TV series which have taken over American TV networks (mostly watched by black people) to the extent that we have to tap into these concepts and copy them?
Though ‘Lekki Wives’, a new TV series to hit Nigerian TV screens is said to be scripted, I am sure you can easily point out where it was ‘stolen’ from. I wouldn’t be this much disappointed if we steal the best TV shows from other countries, rather we always seem to go for the wrong ones.
‘Lekki Wives’ stars Adaora Ukoh, Chinonso Young, Katherine Obiang, Kiki Omeili and Keira Hewatch and it is written, produced and directed by Blessing Effiom Egbe for B’Concept Production.
