Nigeria catches “Real Housewives” bug as “Naija Wives” is set to debut.
I’m not really sure how this is going to play out but hey, I can’t knock anyone’s hustle.
So, a show entitled “Naija Wives” modelled after the popular hit reality series ‘Real Housewives’ is set to hit our screens soon.
Produced by Blessing Egbe, the series will have an initial 3 season run with each season comprising 13 episodes.
The show seeks to ‘mirror the peculiar lifestyles and trends of the New Nigerian women’.
The First season will focus on ‘Lekki Wives’ – specifically, the lives and conditions of five women living, visiting and working in the highbrow Lekki axis. The women will portray ‘significant’ issues trending in the axis and will bring to the fore the ‘very many troubles and lifestyles of the rich’
The release goes on to say:
“The main aim of these series asides the obvious entertainment and informative value, is to create awareness and deter upcoming wives and young girls alike from pursuing only the glamorous aspects of life but to have a broader sense of who they are as women in an otherwise corrupt society where loose and immoral ways of acquiring wealth and living is the order of the day.”
“We seek to teach women the importance of self awareness, self respect, self satisfaction and above all self service to the home, society, mankind and God.”
Auditions for the series have been scheduled for the 1st and 2nd of August 2012.
