Nollywood actress Meg Otanwa attempts to ask some serious questions and challenge the stereotypical gender-specific roles of the African woman, as she hits location to shoot new series Sisterly Speaking.
Sisterly Speaking is being directed by Umar Turaki, whose works have been screened at the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles and the Durban International Film Festival in South Africa, among others.
Sisterly Speaking is a comedy-drama series that follows the eventful life of Ajoke Williams, an ambitious young Nigerian businesswoman. As she juggles business and love, she must learn to navigate the daily pressures of living in a patriarchal society that can be as ridiculous as it is vicious in its prejudice.
Sisterly Speaking features Meg Otanwa, Tunbosun Aiyedehin, Jimmy Odukoya, Ijeoma Aniebo, Rita Edward, Brutus Nfom Richard, Uche Nwaefuna and Sandra Iroegbu.
