The New Face Of Nigerian TV

Recent years have seen a metamorphosis take place on screen in Nigeria. We have unconsciously said goodbye to a lot of Celebrities who have not quite been able to fit in into the new standard that we are evolving to. Also there has been a very quick rise in new faces, people and networks that are bringing more quality to all things Nigeria on the big and small screens. Not to forget some of our old faces that have reinvented themselves to remain relevant.

The rise of networks like Ebony Life TV, Ndani TV and TV Continental and adepth producers and directors like Kunle Afolayan and Emem Isong have opened the atmosphere for us to watch Nigerian products on TV and be proud. 

So here is a QUICKIE on who and what you should know and be watching.

They are still other people including the likes of Toke Makinwa, Ik Osakiodua, Joseph Benjaminp, Alex Ekubo and many more, but I want to “unveil” some shows that will make you proud to be Nigeria

It’s definately my best Nigerian show at the moment, you can catch it in Ndani TV or youtube.


The Spot.
It is the most innovative talkshow I have EVER seen, I won’t tell you why. It shows like everyday on Ebony Life TV on DSTV. (check TV guide for more details.)

I am not really a fan of Shuga because I never get to catch it on tv (I don’t know why), yet I cannot deny that it is a deep breath of fresh air. (It airs on Ebony Life TV and BET and MTV on DSTV)

Moments With Mo
This show needs no gist.
