Sometimes all a sister wants is to kick off the shoes, get under the duvet and binge watch some of the best shows online while snacking on chocolate crusted donuts (because donuts is made for people with super powers).
And while a lot of people think there aren’t too many Nigerian shows to watch online, here I am to correct that notion and give you a list of the most entertaining shows you have been sleeping on before now!
Wake up, would ya?!
Entertaining, goofy, surprisingly hot are some of the words that define these shows and trust me, you’d enjoy them if you gave them a try!
Let’s countdown, shall we?
PS: You’d thank me later for this…
PPS: I like my thank yous in donuts ??
Husbands Of Lagos
This show is h-i-l-a-r-i-o-u-s. I will prescribe it for a night in with your girls, a night in with your man, a night in with your teddy bears (just in case you have no girls and man) and I will prescribe it for a day you are in the mood to binge watch Nollywood web series!
It’s absolutely funny, cool and it’s not lacking in the hot guy department.
Hello, Bolanle Ninalowo, Kenneth Okolie and Bobby Obodo 😉
My favorite character has to be Uche Odoputa’s and of course his wife’s played by Peggy Ovire. And I can almost bet they would be yours when you watch it!
You can argue that this is not a web series, however that will be until you realize most people watch it on the Internet than on AIT.
I mean, why watch on TV when you can easily download, riiight?
And while this hilarious show already had its thousand of followers way before it premiered on TV thanks to the hugely successful movies; Jenifa Part 1 & 2 and The Return Of Jenifa, somehow, it has been able to hold its own as a TV series.
Here are three short reasons to add it to your list of must watch web series;
- It has Jenifa, duh.
- It is the only movie in Nollywood history that was successful in three parts and still is successful on TV and, won its star (Funke Akindele) an AMAA in the film and AMVCA in the series! C’mon why would you not want to watch that type of show?
- It has Falz.
Skinny Girl In Transit
Skinny Girl In Transit does get stuck in traffic sometimes, which would make you want to fast-forward some of the actions. However, it is a pretty show!
The dash of fine ass men, mixture of the African mother desperate on her daughter’s behalf to find husband and the well cooked pictures is definitely a reason to binge watch this show on Ndani’s Youtube channel if you ask me.
I mean, everyone needs a nice show from time to time to take our minds off the change that is in transit.
You agree or nah?
I thought so too 😉
An African City
If you’re into shows about IJBs (I just Got Backs) then you must be sleeping under a rock if you haven’t checked this show out online!
I mean, it totally has everything shows like that have…
- Obodo Oyibo accent ✔️
- Glitz and glam ✔️
- Fine clothes and fine house and fine car and fine road and fine skies and fine everything ✔️
complaining about things they shouldn’t complain aboutgetting used to returning to Africa after a long time ✔️
An African City is actually sweet. It’s something you’d love and even want to have sex with!
This Thing Called Marriage
The soundtrack of this show got me like Breezy’s got Rih’s heart.
And I aint lying…
I was like whoa, nice! Darlene Benson does have an amazing voice, yo!
Now moving on to the show, unlike all the previous shows listed, this show is not here to make you laugh. Well, except you find a few dialogues funny. It deals with the ugly side of marriage nobody tells you about. Except of course you count the ‘for worse’ part of the wedding vow.
Don’t expect man candy or any other candy. Actually, it does get gross in the pilot episode but it is also entertaining and you should totally binge watch!
