    lmao what else they gonna tell folks? That half the people who live in the area have problems like all others? or that half of them married men who didnt have half what they thought they would have? Or the level of keeping up and fakeness prevalent? And before anyone goes up in arms, i live in VI!

  • Princess January 11, 2013 at 12:03 pm

    Does any other person have a problem with the actresses used for the role cause I think they don’t fit the part except Keira

    • IHateBigots January 11, 2013 at 6:32 pm

      Why because they are bigger and dark skinned women? -!

      • Dee-USA January 11, 2013 at 7:08 pm

        Precisely, yes! And you don’t need to come about it in a bigoted way if you don’t know why the person said so. Maybe that was what she meant or maybe, like me, I’m thinking, ‘where are the waist-long Brazilian/Maylasian/Peruvian (insert all other forms that exist) weaves that is synonymous with the women there. As far as the darkened skin, well, in a sense that’s true as well (although it’s not as prevalent as the weaves epidemic yet.) It seems every other woman has a monthly supply of Egyptian milk or whatever. So I’m choosing to believe she meant it in a sarcastic way.

  • The original Beebee January 11, 2013 at 12:07 pm

    @pynk…so if u live in VI, wat shd we do about dat?! *yimu*

    • Marock January 14, 2013 at 10:10 am

  • Someone January 11, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    There is nothing wrong with copying but Nigeria is just fond of copying the wrong things.

    • Someone January 11, 2013 at 1:26 pm

      *Nigerians* are fond of copying the wrong things.

  • Chloe-Amani January 11, 2013 at 1:32 pm

    Is this a joke? Gawsh! Guys get a grip on yourselves. SMH

  • loo January 11, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    all those pple saying “must we copy everything” shhhhhh…. am sure you’re the same set of pple fighting for gay rights in nigeria, why can they not copy a show but can copy something else? pls keep quiet and enjoy it and if you don’t like it DSTV and co have a lot of other stations for you to watch

    • kunle January 11, 2013 at 3:18 pm

      With all sense of respect, I think you are inconsolably idiotic. That’s the paradox of allowing neonates access to the internet.

      • Dayo B January 11, 2013 at 3:45 pm

        And you have just made my year with your comment! Absolutely brilliant.

      • Debo January 11, 2013 at 9:33 pm

Thank God its a soap n nt a reality tv show…evrybody looking for the next big thing bt b creative don’t steal other ppl ideas..

  • Person pikin January 11, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    Mehn their make up na die shaaa

    • Dee-USA January 11, 2013 at 7:17 pm

      My sentiments exactly. Everyone is a make up artist in Nigeria now. Very few have the pedigree to back it up.

  • Drew January 11, 2013 at 2:21 pm

    hahhahahahhaha when I need a good laugh I come to BN. I know by all means something’s gonna make my day. Nigerians and your drama. Lololol Lekki what? Hmmm you people eh…..

  • Passing Stranger January 11, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    Please will this be shown on Nollywood or something in UK so those of us in UK can watch it as well? Its looks interesting if the producers/directors can deliver on the hype they’ve created.

  • Baba T aka T Baba January 11, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    O_o
    I am speechless…..

  • ruggy January 11, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    i cant wait for this series it would mad….

  • Tongue are going to wag! January 11, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    For real!

  • Shee January 11, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    lekki wives indeed, copycat is still the word. some people see something that’s wrong and they blindly say we shouldnt say anything. it is well, may God help Nigeria.

  • nich January 11, 2013 at 2:46 pm

    must nigerians keep following all americans are doing?…………….there is no originality

  • shola January 11, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    haters pleaseeeeeee stop!!! This preview is dope! Very classy and tight! I dont care if its a copy idea. Almost all the shows out there are the same but this is naija mhenn! love the chains on that dude with keira, cant wait. Welldone guys…

    • Peace January 12, 2013 at 3:18 am

      Im telling you. I think people just saw the title and bashed it. I dont think its bad at all.

  • Anon January 11, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    I bet it’s art mimicking reality based on the real stories i hear about Lekki peeps.

    • chisco January 11, 2013 at 7:00 pm

      thankfully someone here gets it

  • Shay shay January 11, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    Na wa for all the slap-slap shaaaa…lol see as dem dey troway slap anyhow

  • Joan January 11, 2013 at 3:12 pm

    I want to see what this is about lol.

    But those saying they are copying the west, I only have two things to say:
    1. The other “Real Housewives of XYZ” that show on TV in the west all copied one another. Someone started it and more sprang up.
    2. It’s okay to copy their hairstyles (which includes buying their hair too, so we can look like them), makeup, mode of dressing, accents, but it’s not okay copy their TV productions that generate laughs for the audience & and income for the producers, right?
    Okay…:)

  • Inebaby January 11, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    Lolllll… can’t wait to watch! lol

  • adenike January 11, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    Since it’s drama – I’ll watch. Though the picture quality is a bit off, I’ll be a bit encouraging. Good luck to them!

  • obi-talk January 11, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    It looks too foreign. Bring it home, as in make it more Nigerian. Have a team of talented writers like tinsel does. If you write, produce and direct u ‘ll kill it someday. U need that inflow of creativity. the concept is good but make it as Nigerian as possible and it will be a win win!

    • omada January 11, 2013 at 10:22 pm

      which Tinsel? that dead show?

    • Frances January 27, 2014 at 7:07 am

      What Tinsel…infact the main issue with Tinsel is that there is no story line…every other thing may work for the show but I cant fathom the lack of continuity in characters and plot. Its also a bit out of touch with the Nigerian reality! This show looks promising and may give us jaded people something new to watch…

  • lorenz January 11, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    mehn!! its just drama na. why so much arguments

  • MEE January 11, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    Tanx joan,dats some good point,if u are a brazillian hair user n’oyibo makeup n’dress user running ur mouth about copy copy, just take several seats behind.

  • Gidi Girl January 11, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    I’m sorrry but this looks like a BAD Nigerian movie…..the concept of reality TV for some reason is a flop in Naija and I think thats because we Nigerians know ourselves, once we know the camera is rolling we start acting! LOL

  • majo January 11, 2013 at 4:39 pm

    this thing is supreme razzness. is it meant to be a comedy??

  • zoomzoomzoom January 11, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    I just love Catherine Edoho(Obiang),she is absolutely gorgeous!

  • shola January 11, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    why do we have so many angry people on this site, why dont you wait and see what its all about before u start cursing. Beg Bella when are we expecting the real deal now

  • Cindylee January 11, 2013 at 5:25 pm

    Abeg it looks interesting. will look out for it most def

  • Someone January 11, 2013 at 5:39 pm

    And you wonder why moral values in Naija is decaying; seriously..

  • Dee Lami January 11, 2013 at 6:01 pm

    You call the sho w ” Lekki Wives”…..and you now put kwekwe looking women on the show, is the producer trying to say that lekki wives are ugly looking babes dressed in cheap clothes.. cos i dont get it.. Loud makeup.. Mscheeeewwwww.! The Producer no try at all….

  • Temilola January 11, 2013 at 6:11 pm

    Very interesting looking indeed, can’t wait to watch. Very well done, I’m loving keir,s character

  • www.thebanquethall.blogspot.com January 11, 2013 at 6:22 pm

    It seems like some girls are now tired of all them artificial hair. Good. Nothing like rocking your lovely Kinky African hair. Wish you the best on the show.

  • Kemi January 11, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    pls Bella Naija…always put the link for us abroad to watch the show…am already a fan of Lekki Wives…No shaaking! I will watch :=) It looks classy from what I am seeing.

    • Response January 13, 2013 at 1:34 am

      Sorry lav, if they put a link for watching the show then what’s the essence of dstv market? It means you’re telling the people who pay to subscribe to dstv they are fools. Too bad, that’s how they’ll make their money, by your subscribing and not free view *wink

  • Lekki co January 11, 2013 at 6:47 pm

    I live abroad but looking forward to this.

  • Bolanle January 11, 2013 at 6:49 pm

    The show hasnt even started airing & see all the controversy its already generating. I agree with the person that said all them american “wives” franchise started by copying each other. If you have a problem with it, then by all means stop watching ‘idol’, ‘naija’s got talent’, ‘who wants to be a millionaire’ and others. Even Omotola’s started her own version of the ‘kadashians’..still laughing on that one. Abegi, can’t wait to watch this Lekki wives. For me, Kiki’s the one to watch. Saw one of her movies. Girl was on fire!

  • chisco January 11, 2013 at 6:59 pm

    Again, I marvel at how people hurriedly comment without reading, even more worrisome is the possibility that you read the article but didnt understand that this is a scripted sitcom, not reality tv… So yes, you can bet your bottom dollar that they will be acting, thats what they are hired to do in a sitcom.

    • LOLS January 12, 2013 at 12:03 am

      God bless you Chisco! I’ve just been shaking my head at their uninformed comments. Its stated above SCRIPTED series..,. na wa!!!

      • i no send January 12, 2013 at 7:19 pm

        yes chisco is the only one that realises that THIS IS A SITCOM NOT A REALITY SHOW..PLS READ AND WATCH PROPERLY

  • Evilicious January 11, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    I think the only thing here that is being copied is the title. Everything else is wack, but I’ll watch sha lol

  • poshilla! January 11, 2013 at 8:36 pm

    HAHAHAHH ! NAIJA WE CAN COPY AND OVER PASTE OO,PLS WATCH MA NEW TRAILER -NNEWI HUSBANDS AND LAGOS HUSBANDS CLASH!!

  • FP January 11, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    Lol at copy..
    Who cares if it’s copied?!
    The bottom line is – DO IT WELL!
    Not sure about this show sha..
    The trailer certainly didn’t do it for me..
    POOR!

  • Love January 11, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    Thank you o my people!i tire for all these copy copy!cant naija be original?i love my country,I support my people,I love progress but I won’t be watching !till all u copycats be original,I will keep watching E!

  • CEO January 11, 2013 at 8:50 pm

    Im sorry but who are these low lives? Nonsense!

  • Winny January 11, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    Copy, copy you all commented, the English language you all used to leave these comments is it a Nigerian language. Enemies of progress, misery loves company. Losers will always tear others down to find joy yet it eludes them.

  • omada January 11, 2013 at 10:24 pm

    the only person i’m interested in watching is Keira.

  • HABBA January 11, 2013 at 11:16 pm

    can they find betta actresses? no self respecting lekki woman would have this Arikobey hair cut that these women have. these ladies look like housewives of Iyaba!

  • Bola January 12, 2013 at 12:03 am

    How can you tell if the show is original if you haven’t watched it??? There are several American movies and series that make use of the caption ‘wife’, ‘wives’ or ‘housewives’, yet you don’t hear dem screaming blue murder!!! Have u guys not heard of ‘Desperate housewives’ or Football Wives or Army wives, all successful american series??? The synopsis of the show is as original as it gets, unless you guys can’t read and that is a crying shame. all the best tho. It sounds promising.

  • Titi January 12, 2013 at 12:21 am

    Is it just me or was there a lesbian theme? The two ladies in bed together? We’re really opening our minds sha

  • wiklo January 12, 2013 at 1:57 am

    any viewer discretion warning because i think i heard/saw some curse words / raunchy sexual acts going on – moral of the story, hope parents would not lazily let their kids gather round to watch it like it’s village headmaster o!. just like the franchise here in the states some love Housewives’ series (me) while others think it’s crappy – bottom line, two sides to a coin.

  • GEJ January 12, 2013 at 2:31 am

    Interesting…can’t wait…

  • ant January 12, 2013 at 3:13 am

    very wack looking! don’t mind too much that it’s copy copy but please add some class to it. haba! the make up and clothes are hurtful to my eyes.

  • Rider January 12, 2013 at 4:18 am

    There’s nothing wrong with copying. And there is nothing wrong with wanting your country to create an original show. Chill out. Everyone is due to their own opinions, right? Creative people seek to be originators not immitators.

  • Diaspora Chic January 12, 2013 at 6:24 am

    I hear you can watch it on http://www.dobox.tv

  • esin January 12, 2013 at 7:17 am

    the peron who called those actors lowlife is himself/herself an angry lowlife being…it takes one to know one..such rudeness emanating from lowlife faceless people themselves. get a grip. if you dont like it, dont watch it…i will…for those who say its a copy, blessingegbe has tweeted somethings about the copy issue, she also said it will be available online next week, cant wait.

  • esin January 12, 2013 at 7:18 am

  • ZM January 12, 2013 at 9:30 am

    I am so gonna be watching it!!!! so excited :)

  • Lynn January 12, 2013 at 1:29 pm

    hhmm…why do we always like to bash our own? We never appreciate our own. Little wonder the Nazerites did not recieve much from esus cos to them he was just that carpenter’s son they have always known. I particularly would love to watch this series; I love what I have just seen. When people say Nigerians copy the West, ehen…what is wrong with that? Fake it till you make it. Even the Western world still copied from others; and don’t forget it took them a veryyyyyyyy (notice how many “y”s in the very) long time for them to get to where they are. The difference between us and them is just a matter of time. Have a lil faith in your country jor…Army wives, despereate housewives, LEKKI WIVES. Naija rocks

  • Bamie January 12, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    Lol….she’s talking about her EX and stupid toasters

  • Adeola January 12, 2013 at 10:26 pm

    We as Nigerians maybe fond of copying, but hey…..if it looks good, it’s worth watching compared to some others that are just waste of time. Anything for entertainment nowadays.

  • anon January 12, 2013 at 11:18 pm

    Why now…. Nigerians copy copy everything sotey you copy suicide bombing i dont know what is next

  • Renny Vonne January 13, 2013 at 6:08 am

    Nigerians oooo, It is okay for each of us to disagree without resorting to name calling. Personally, I find it more humorous than pathetic. But to each his own, so no need for insults

  • Sophia January 13, 2013 at 9:42 pm

    Habaaaaa!!! una wey be kings and queens of criticizing… its not like its a reality Tv show nahh.. lets calm down.. How many of u have ever had an ORIGINAL idea in ur life… In our world of today, ideas are gotten from things that have been done before or things that are currently in existence.. What makes it a great idea its ur ability to take it, clean it up, make it better (add new stuffs) and make it YOURS… From the clip i saw i think its gonna be fun to watch… CAN”T WAIT…. ***wink wink***

  • Desire January 14, 2013 at 10:00 am

    Easy people. Its only the name that is a copy. Give the drama a chance. I will watch it if i catch it on air. Am glad they didnt use ur regular, over-used, no acting skillsx actors.

  • OLA January 14, 2013 at 10:03 am

    Woah! Ecstatic!!! But, i hope the series will be as captivating as the Trailer. :D

  • Uche January 22, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    This is OBVIOUSLY scripted (and NOT a relaity tv show) but only a few took the time to note. The rest of you immediately began to criticize. With incomplete information at that! Please be productive with your own lives and stop forever trying to knock down other people’s hustle! Kai. Bad belle no go finish una

    • ekundayo January 27, 2013 at 1:34 am

      You have said it all! People are quick to jump to conclusion without full knowledge. I just finished watching all the episodes! Fantastic work done! Kudos to the crew!
