Jeka Play is the latest project of media personality, Bunmi Davies. It is based on the happenings at popular UNILAG restaurant and hangout spot ‘Jeka Play’ that Bunmi Davies owns.
The restaurant is a focal point of social activities and the sitcom draws its inspiration from the different kind of people that patronize the place. The sitcom will feature Hafiz Oyetoro (Saka), Wazobia FM’s Nedu and many others.
Speaking about what inspired him to create the sitcom, Davies said, “My experience of running Jeka Play at Unilag has been a very interesting one because by nature of the kind of venue it is and the campus environment around, we get some really interesting characters coming in all the time and there is never a dull moment with them around.”
He continued, “From the genuinely beautiful girls and guys to the ‘I must belong by force’ students, right down to the aristos, not forgetting the student politicians with good, bad and funny motives, and of course a few randy lecturers. It occurred to me that these everyday comedic experiences at Jeka Play should be promoted to a wider audience thus the idea for the sitcom was born.”
Jeka Play is set to premiere on Tuesday, May 31 on TVC.
