Big Stars for a Big TV Show! Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde Joins Eku Edewor, Toolz, DJ Xclusive, Venita Akpofure, Tracy Nwapa in the Teaser for “The Island”



The Island Poster PIn February 2013, we told you guys there was a TV show of all TV shows that was going to blow your mind. {HERE} Well! It’s almost here and we’re very excited.

After creating a media frenzy with the release of the first ‘The Island’ teaser a few months ago, Urban Vision Productions teases the African audience yet again with another trailer – this time with just enough detail to wet appetites and leave us gasping for more. This 2nd trailer shows us more about the intrigues and alliances, emotions that we can expect to see on the show. We are also introduced to a new character of Mrs Tokunbo Bowen-Cole, who is played by none other than the successful screen goddess; Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, who was recently rated by Time Magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the world and is the first Nigerian celebrity to reach the 1 million-fan mark on Facebook.

The much buzzed-about drama series is directed by veteran director/filmmaker Tola Odunsi, from a script by Bayo Lambo, Motunrayo Elais and Ada Iwugo .

“The Island” stars Demola Adedoyin as Femi Bowen-Cole,Tolu ‘Toolz’ Oniru as Yemisi Balogun, Seun O as Segun Alaba, Eku Edewor as Sade Coker, Derin ‘DJ Caise’ Philips as Jide Ademola, Somkele Iyamah as Ada Agu, Rotimi ‘DJ Xclusive’ Alakija as Ahmed Bako, Zainab Balogun as Teni Bowen-Cole, Venita Akpofure as Fola, Jimmie as Lanre Jegede, Stephanie Coker as Tayo Sowande, Tracy Nwapa as Nike Oregun, and Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde as Mrs Tokunbo Bowen-Cole.

    LOL @ “a new ORIGINAL series” when it’s essentially a Lagos version of Gossip Girl.
    And the acting looks wack. Smh.

    I am slowly giving up on Nigeria films. To think the elites of our society gather to make this? Hian!!!!!

    • hayzey

      May 22, 2013 at 11:53 am

      That’s the whole point. They’re “elite”. That’s all we’re supposed to see and be wowed by. We’re supposed to be blinded by the glitz and glam and not notice how shoddy it all is.

    omotola is looking good. toolz seems like a good actor. and somkele iyamah should consider joining nollywood. the production seems amateurish, but if the content and acting are good, i’ll watch, if not…

    These BN folk and the way they throw words around. How is Tola Odunsi a ‘veteran’ now? Is he now in the same league as Olu Jacobs, Joke Silva, Taiwo Ajayi-Lycet and co? I just tire!

    All you razz wannabe”s that have never entered a Hermes store and are calling the bag fake … if you had brains or even knew anything about Hermes you would know that the birkin bag comes in different leathers, togo, fjord , clemence etc.. Now the bag Omotola who i must say looks like “a bag of money” has on is Clemence leather 40cm translation for you razz wannabe”s especially the mumu saying its creased, its soft leather so it collapses after use and is not as structured as the Togo leather (google is your friend) as for the acting how are you going to judge their acting skills from a trailer .. Instead of y’all to promote and commend the effort you are beefing while this actors are counting checks .. All i see here is fabulousity young hot aspiring actors .. This is going to be a HOT show don’t be a hater join the movement and get that money.. PS i am surprised y’all didn’t say the G wagon was fake …

    D trailer isn’t bad. If they have good directors it could be a hit show. D casting people are smart; they weren’t lookin for typical ‘Nollywood’ actors, they’re tryin t get closer to the real thing .
