FIRST POST! Lekki Wives: My Inspiration to bring 1NB to life

I recently subscribed to iROKOtv after much persuasion from my cousin, leading me to the brilliant series that is Lekki Wives.

At first, we were watching movies from Lagos Cougar, Knocking on Heaven’s Door to some other pretty good ones. But I am more of a series than a movies fan, and iROKOtv had lots of offerings in this arena which I decided to make the most of.

Lekki Wives Season 1

Coming across the show’s poster, I thought Nigeria wan try copy the Real Housewives of Atlanta but it turned out it is not exactly the case.

The story follows Cleo, Miranda, Lovette, Uju and Peace whose relationships with one another and their partners are tested in different situations. I am addicted to series for its authenticity and impressive delivery by the actors, many of whom I had not heard of before.

The programme is like a classic Nigerian drama similar to Super Story, which not only entertained but also touched on matters that you or someone you know have experienced.

See trailer and full cast below.
