halima 2

And the captivating web series premiere, one after the other.

Gidi Culture is here. BellaNaija Movies & TV was first to give you the scoop on the exciting new series starring celebrity photographer turned musician and actress Toni Tones as well as Seun Kentebe, Kiki Omeili and Seun Ajayi.


The show’s protagonist, Halima Dan-Ladi Adebayo, is a naïve upper class Nigerian attending graduate school in New York City. When a grave accident occurs in her apartment, Halima’s divorced Mother, Mariam Dan-Ladi, coerces her daughter to return to Nigeria indefinitely and attend the Lagos Business School. Life in Gidi exposes Halima to a whole new world she never knew existed.

Will she ultimately succeed in this challenge of familiarizing herself with Gidi Culture and come to terms with her new reality? Or will she plummet into bad company and fall prey to the enmity amassed by some of Nigeria’s frustrated youth? Only time will tell as life unfolds in “Gidi Culture.”

The series, it shows the lives of several young people from different walks of life as they relate to each other under various climates of prosperity and privation often associated with life in Gidi (Nigeria).

Check it out!

    I’m sorry this is stupid, no story line

      How did you not get the story line? It’s a series, not a movie, so you are not supposed to get the entire story in one episode. Besides, the story is that she’s now trapped in Nigeria as her passport has been seized. Such high density is uncalled for darling.

    Nene, I see you gurrl with your back-handed compliment – ToniT for MercyJ.. oh really?!? Anyway, this was nice to watch. Not bad at all and might I say ToniT was good and believable as an actress.

    Oh my!! I am hooked on this!!! and I may have a crush on Hakim (insert real name here). The Toni chick is a good actress. Her acting is so fluid … or perhaps the role she’s playing isn’t so different from her reality. Either way, I love her character.

    Some scenes dragged, some of the dialogue gave me Nollywood tees. Since there was no credit, the Kazeem guy has a beautiful smile. That hair aged the Halima girl, especially if she is playing a 24 year old.
    I’m glad this is longer than the standard less than 10 min videos.
    I find that Nigerian acts and directors struggle with club scenes. If it in not overly focused on some girl’s ass, it is people who do not know how to NOT bloody look at the camera.

    BN! Y do I feel like the comments are being censored or maybe I watched something different cos toni’s acting seemed very bland and the story line looks weak the other characters did alot better in my opinion….. I am not a hater just merely stating my opinion

    Toni Tones is a great actress! Have to give it to her. She should accept that music is not her calling and act instead

    • Sura

      March 23, 2014 at 5:09 pm

    1st time ive watched a nigerian drama and forgot they were acting. Kudos! Splendid job by all, the lead actress is a much needed find in the nigerian movie industry i think. The tunde guy had me laughing all through. Is this a weekly show?

  50. Boma BM

    March 26, 2014 at 11:57 am

    May 30, 2014 at 5:32 pm

    I totally enjoyed watching the episode. I’m in love with Toni Tones no doubt! Maybe some scenes dragged and were badly edited but in all, the plot is a true representation of this generation. The Gidi Culture generation. Thumbs up!
