Linda Ikeji hopes to disrupt the Nigerian TV space in 2018 with a reality TV show – Oyinbo Wives of Lagos – unlike anything we have seen in Naija. I think this one is perfect for the lovers of the Kardashian series and Telemundo.
The show is about six Nigerian women married to white men who live in Lagos. Awon maga! The show promises to come with “drama, fights, friendship, laughter.” “And more drama like you’ve never seen before.”
There are no official updates on the cast, trailer or release date but here is what we know. Starting with the obvious, Linda is executively producing and the show is shot in Lagos. Samari Daniel is directing and Eloho Okumo is producing.
Oyinbo Wives of Lagos will air on the Linda Ikeji TV channel on DSTV and YouTube. It is coming out sometime in 2018, no official release date.
Late last year, Linda Ikeji expanded her brand beyond blogging; starting an online TV network, online radio, music website and a social community.
Linda stated that the online TV network – Linda Ikeji TV – will have several shows including reality shows, game shows, entertainment/ sports programs, talks show etc. and had recently announced that she is now buying TV content.
The Oyinbo Wives of Lagos joins the Report Card show, Black Room, Hot Topics with Latasha on the list of shows on Linda Ikeji TV. You can watch all of the official Linda Ikeji TV YouTube’s channel.
Initial reaction to the announcement of this reality TV show has been positive and if similar reactions occur when the show starts airing next year, the show could truly disrupt the Nigerian TV space. Or gets a lot of viewers like BB Naija.
Are you looking forward to this show that promises lots of drama? Kardashian kinda drama? I am not so sure. Let me know your thoughts in the comment section.
