Nigeria’s History Written in ‘Ink, Blood & Piss’ | Watch the 3rd Part of Daniel Effiong’s Web Series – Crimson



The first two episodes of Crimson by Daniel Effiong’s were very intriguing and we waited with bated breath to see how the third one will play out. We’re very glad that it’s been released. If you missed the them, check them out here: {Episode 1 and Episode 2}

Crimson is a 3-part series which was inspired by the need to shed light on the dark parts of Nigeria’s history ‘the need to celebrate freedom of information and strengthen investigative journalism‘. Comprising of ‘Amazing Grace’, ‘Your Cup of Tea‘ and lastly, ‘Ink, Piss & Blood‘, the series is centred on the story of Akin.

According to the producers of the series, ‘Akin is an A-list detective and henchman of a notorious dictator who realises that dedication to his duty may cause him more than he bargained. He encounters three political prisoners and in his bid to crack them he comes face to face with his own demons’.

CRIMSON is loosely based on several events in Nigeria’s recent history including the “Obasanjo phantom coup, the mysterious deaths of Gloria Okon and Dele Giwa”. It is riddled with several metaphors and expressionist in approach.

In this episode, Detective Akin (played by Seun Ajayi) interrogates Dele Giwa (played by O.C Ukeje).
