Linda Ikeji TV (LITV) has unveiled teasers to three new reality TV shows in the works as it aims to make good on its promise of offering more content.
New reality series Mushin, which looks at everyday ghetto life, is set to air soon on LITV. Similar to Ajegunle with Love, it gives an insight into the lifestyle of the inhabitants of Mushin, “one of the roughest part of Lagos.”
Also in the line-up is light-hearted series Hottest Bachelor in Nigeria, an unscripted show featuring former Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) star Bally.
He will feature alongside 25 single women and is expected to propose to his favoured candidate. Bally claimed that after his five-year relationship came to an abrupt end following BBNaija, he is seeking a lasting relationship that will lead to marriage.
Those interested in taking part in the show are encouraged to send a one-minute video explaining why they should be selected.
LITV is also set to begin broadcasting a new documentary series, I Am Agoro, which will focus on the life experiences of Nigeria’s tallest man, Afeez Agoro.
LITV launched its video streaming service in June and is seeking reality TV stars and content creators.
It currently has more than 40 programmes and plans to add more before the year ends. Its exclusive shows include Oyinbo Wives of Lagos, King Tonto and Ajegunle With Love.
Reality TV series Magodo Mums & Their Single Friend has joined the list of forthcoming original shows to be made available on web channel Linda Ikeji TV (LITV).
In anticipation of the official launch of LITV, the channel’s CEO and creative director Linda Ikeji announced the latest addition to the reality series set to join the channel.
Magodo Mum & Their Single Friend will highlight the daily lives of five women, four of whom are married. It will take viewers through a journey of their friendship, drama, love lives and occasional conflict.
According to Ikeji, the show will also address the stigma of being single in Nigerian society. Magodo Mums & Their Single Friend is produced by Precious Talker and has Ikeji as its creative director.
Other unscripted shows due to debut on LITV include Oyinbo Wives of Lagos, Gidi Girls, Ajegunle with Love, Highway Girls of Eko and King Tonto. LITV was due to launch on June 1 but has been delayed.
Web-based video channel LindaIkeji TV has released a trailer for forthcoming reality show Ajegunle With Love.
The original series will follow the lives of people born and bred in Ajegunle, a neighbourhood in Lagos. According to the network, Ajegunle With Love will focus on the drama, intrigue, poverty and hard work to be found in the town.
Joining the long list of reality programmes heading for the network this year, Ajegunle With Love will show the daily hustle of five individuals: singer Sunny Boy, barber Valiant, bar owner and security guard Jairo, footballer Lucia, and Harris, a graduate of Lagos State University and a teacher.
Ajegunle With Love is exclusive to LindaIkeji TV, is produced by Odega Shawa and has Linda Ikeji, CEO of LindaIkeji TV, as its creative and executive producer. Its release date has yet to be announced.
Other reality TV shows lined up to launch this year on LindaIkeji TV are Gidi Girls, King Tonto and Oyinbo Wives of Lagos. Linda Ikeji, one of the biggest bloggers in Nigeria, launched her web video channel in 2016.
