An African City - March 2014 - BellaNaija Movies & TV - BellaNaija 01

BellaNaija Movies & TV presents a new show titled “An African City”.

A BN reader gave us the tip on the trending new show. The Ghanaian based production tells the story of five beautiful and successful women who confide in one another about their love-lives (or lack thereof) and find new ways to deal with being a 21st century woman in Africa.

They are returnees a.k.a Johnny Just Come. The series which kicked off on Youtube in February 2014, is created by Nicole Amarteifio, while Millie Monyo is the executive producer.

It features Esosa E, Maame Adjei, MaameYaa Boafo, Nana Mensah and Marie Humbert.

    Make I no talk. All this African this, African that, no wonder any time dem mention Kenya, Ugnada or Tanzania for class, everyone dey look me because dem think say na the same country we dey. Africa is not a country, stop the labelling. If na England now or France, dem no dey write European city, the particular country is mentioned and not the city. Even the United States citizens in my class, when they are asked, where are you from, they say Texas, California, Ohio, etc. Please you guys should staaaaapit o. Make una dey try to be more specific, what is wrong with “A Ghanaian city”?

      I think they say that because the characters are from different countries and the show will probably move around quite a bit. They characters mentioned their countries of origin frequently

      Depending on who their target audience is, “a Ghanian city” may not garner much interest from non-Africans as “an African City” would. Slowly but surely we will educate the western world seeing that some of them are willing to learn. Feel free to correct them when they say Africa though. Ask them, what country in Africa?

      But for now let’s just draw them to Africa.

      You just spoke what has been on my mind forever.
      What black people dont realize is that the term ‘African’ is a synonym for a black person. They cant be bothered with where you are from. The sad thing is that black people have followed their white masters and started throwing this term everywhere. It has even become a pet peeve of mine that whenever anyone mentions “you are from Africa”…i said No! I am Nigerian.
      Another thing i have noticed is that whenever oyibo start to respect you, they stop calling you African and start calling you Nigerian. So just have that in the back of your mind the next time someone calls you African.

    Correct, controlled acting. I hope Nollywood will pick up one or two things from these ladies. I enjoyed it. Look forward to many more episodes.

      Are you serious about the acting and Nollywood?

    I loveee it. Something’s are a bit more exaggerated than others but great episodes. Keep them coming….GH babeeee 🙂

    Great series! I caught the 1st episode. I will check out 2nd. I think its beautiful to view a portrayal young women of different stages of their lives & the cultural style that meets them. Each of the ladies bring their own jazz. However, I’m more familiar with several of Esosa & Nana Mensah projects.

    I think the cast lacks chemistry. They say their lines like they’re at some recital. Quite stiff I’d say. Cinematography is good so is the styling and make up but the girls I don’t think can act all that well. Perhaps they’ll get better as we see more episodes? Beautiful women though for sure.

      I started from the second video because people seemed to think the first was a waste of time, but I just watched it now and I have to say that african women are fine like fire. Kilode!

    LOL … I know this is double standards as I’ve probably made similar comments like these to friends once or twice in the past. However, with the accents, the high-pitched questioning tone at the end of each sentence, the comment about Starbucks (typical American behaviour *rolls eyes*), and the patronising line about fried plantain, all I’m thinking is “so because they gave you passport to go abroad for 10 years we won’t hear.” The picture quality is good but it sounds like one very long whining session. Also, there are many vegetarian diets in East Africa.

    So wait, just hold up one hot damn minute. I was about to stan for this video till I jeard the runs girl’s name was SADE. We in Nigeria are LEARNERS compared to Ghanaian girls when it comes to aristo work oh. Spent four years in Accra so trust me I know this. So the producer of this thing can kindly take a seat in the middle of Third mainland Bridge. I will be having none of this attempted SHADE thankyouverymuch

    • sigh

      March 18, 2014 at 1:54 am

      I swear. I hope she isn’t a runs girl because GH babes are very very loose compared to Naija ones.

    • sigh

      March 18, 2014 at 1:59 am

      Ok saw Ep 2, Sade is a runs girl. This is BS>

      You must know a lot of ‘GH babes’ to make this absolutely brilliant generalization. SMH

      U spent 4 years in Ghana so all of a sudden you know all Ghanaian women? What a senseless basis for judgement. So because the girls name is Sade it immediately means shots were taken at Nigerians? Does every topic have to be nsrrowed down to a gh/naija battle

    Horrible acting, horrible scenario, very cheaply made! Though I like the concept

    Love this series. I couldn’t stop laughing. It could have been in any African country. The experiences coming from the West are the same. I’ve bookmarked the page and look forward to seeing more episodes.

      Hello, the MTV Shuga series does not run in perpetuity. All the episodes in the season were published by us.

      Thank you for visiting BN.

      loool. “Does not run in perpetuity”… I LOVE IT!! (the use of the word perpetuity here ie) Its been too long since I used it in a sentence, and you just gave me a “worgasm”. Thank you 🙂 Yes, I am posting a long comment raving about the use of a word 😛

    wait……are they trying to teach us ‘African’ manners here?……or are they building up on “African’ stereotypes or dispelling them?…. or are they rubbing their ‘oyinbo-ness’ in our faces?….i am seriously confused, or mayb it is the first episode…..they were over acting sef…..annoying…

  31. Bev

    March 18, 2014 at 2:38 am

    It could be better, a bit cliché , but I like the series. One thing I find extremely lazy is the pronunciation of the Nigerian names and especially in Episode 3. All they needed to do do was to make ONE phone call.
    Jason Nwoga and Haile Owusu are yummy.

    Episode 1 gave me chills and I said “ewww stop it” a couple of times. But Since I no get work, I watched episode 2 and 3, and the ladies certainly got better and deliver their lines better. Also the “african bashing” kinda stopped and now the girls are settling in the typical “single girl” role. Lines are delivered better and story line is intriguing. I am certainly looking forward to more. New episodes on Sundays I hear? Already subscribed.
    Looks like the African version of “Girlfriends” or “Single Ladies”… I am excited.

    #stopthestereotype

    Those that come home (African countries): Reason – ‘No Place Like Home’…. after their longgggg job search…or not getting their ‘needful’ jobs.

    Those that can’t come home (Remain in the supposed Developed Countries): Reason – ‘There is no security in African countries’…. Meanwhile they are fully aware that they cannot fit into the fast developing economy of the African countries ie they are not well equiped for the available HOT jobs in the fast developing African countries…lol…OR…if they dear come home, they can never go back ie illegal status in the supposed countries.

    Oh Lord Thank You for the mature inds who can live in or at literally any part of the world BECAUSE their formative life-years in Nigeria esp Lasgidi have made them Survivors aka ‘Street Smart’…

    LoL

    too much talk talk and no action. dem try. i still prefer lekki wives. very real and down to earth. looks like sex and the city mixed with friends copy. if you want to learn how to speak african american accent, then you can watch it but if you want pure fun, then lekki wives is the way to go

    Lekki wives ke??! How, when n why? I mean… lekki wives???? the most unrealistic naija story and their by force delivery. If you don’t like the acting, at least love the girls, the costume, their delivery! Lekkiwives ko isale eko babes ni! Appreciate fellow nigerian! Just appreciate, you dont need to love.
