Hey guys! I recently stumbled on this amazing Nigerian web series by RedTV and The Naked Convo so I’m here to share for those (like me) who had not heard about it or others who just thought to ignore and decided to sleep on the series. The romantic dramedy stars Adebola “Illrymz” Olowu, Oreka Godis, Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi, Chris Attoh, Timi Charles-Fadipe, Unamka Marycolette, Yewande Lawal, Sarah Boulos and Theo Lawson.
- The storyline: Our Best Friend’s Wedding is about a young man Charles Effiong (played by Adebola “Illrymz” Olowu) who panics and buys an engagement ring on a whim. He recruits his two female best friends, Jadesola Adeyemi (played by Oreka Godis) and Adekemi Manuel (Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi) to help him go through a list of potential candidates which sets off a series of events that leads to a wedding.
- It’s ours and realistic: The series is made by Nigerians, in Nigeria and it is of world class standard. It tells a story every young Nigerian can relate to. Although it is not a true life story, it has some real life elements and anybody that watches will probably see his/herself in one of the characters. I know I did.
- It’s still showing: Unlike other new series I’ve brought to your attention and asked that you binge because the season is over, this amazing series is still ongoing as it is just on its 7th episode so you can binge the previous episodes and wait for other episodes like the rest of us. I bet you would be addicted to it.
- The acting is so good: The Nigerian movie industry has been serving us awesome stuff in recent times and this is definitely one of them. The chemistry between actors and their professional interpretation of the script is just on-point. The picture quality and soundtrack is also topnotch.
Our best friend’s wedding is the best thing you’ll see this week (or whenever you decide to listen to my wise words). It looks like the internet will continue to bless us with awesome Nigerian web series. Just take all our data, please!
