Lagos – With the release of its first episode on Yotube, Nigeria’s first mini-series is preparing its launch into the Nigerian television sphere.
GidiCulture is a five episodes mini-series which features the trials and tribulations of six youths from different walks of life as they face the ups and downs of living in Lagos (Las Gidi).
GidiCulture stars award-winning Amara Onoh, Kiki Omeli of Lekki Wives fame, Seun Ajayi, Seun Kentebe, Tayo David, Meg Otanwa and Toni Tones.
According to the creative brain behind Gidi Culture, Tunji Anjorin, the producers are in discussions with terrestrial, satellite, cable and online platform for a mini-series that will be watched and shared on Twitter, Facebook and blogs.
Anjorin explained why the first episode was uploaded on Youtube.
“In Nigeria no one does a pilot episode to check whether their efforts are worthwhile. The entertainment industry is changing and where people go to watch TV has changed.
"YouTube is accessible to all and it is a space where we can get the audience's reaction and comments.
For us this about doing things differently which also means challenging the norm.”
