AccelerateTV.com which is inspired by Access Bank is an online platform which focuses on entertaining, educating and empowering the youth. This show was created to shine a light on teamwork and empowered youths from differing ethnic groups coming together to try and make a difference.
Directed by Tunde Olaoye (of the successful Jenifa’s Diaries) and produced by Accelerate’s Bolanle Olosunde, Corper Shun is set around Nigeria’s National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). The show heralds the experiences of five corps members who were thrown in a service year mix with an over-zealous Zonal Coordinator and a huge government task.
Their entire service year depends on the fulfillment of this task, but with Mr A.A.A as Zonal Coordinator, it is left to chance, whether they will complete their service year or not.
Get ready to reminisce about the best moments from your service year and laugh your head off at the same time.
