Yoruba series bound for StarTimes
Nigerian actor Adebayo Salami has produced Yoruba-language series Alagbara exclusively for pay TV company StarTimes.
According to Salami, the 26-episode educational series was produced solely to promote Nigerian culture.
Salami said: “The series is a beautifully crafted indigenous series that sheds light on lives of different men from all walks of life and how they are controlled, manipulated, influenced and reshaped by the women in their lives.”
Salami also appears in the show and the other cast members include Ronke Oshodi Oke, star of 2000 movie Oshodi Oke; Toyin Adegbola; Yemi Solade; Femi Adebayo; Sotayo; Dele Odule; and Bukky Arugba.
Although the release date for the series has not yet been announced by the Chinese-owned pay TV company, it is currently undergoing its final edits.
