Nollywood actress Meg Otanwa is questioning and challenging the stereotypical gender-specific roles of the African woman as she begins shooting new series “Sisterly Speaking.”
The series will be her first as a producer and content creator, and is directed by the celebrated filmmaker Umar Turaki.
“Sisterly Speaking” is a comedy-drama series that follows the eventful life of Ajoke Williams, an ambitious young Nigerian businesswoman. As she juggles business and love, she must learn to navigate the daily pressures of living in a patriarchal society that can be as ridiculous as it is vicious in its prejudice.
Sisterly Speaking features a blend of award winning actors and fresh talent: Meg Otanwa, Tunbosun Aiyedehin, Jimmy Odukoya, Ijeoma Aniebo, Rita Edward, Brutus Nfom Richard, Uche Nwaefuna and Sandra Iroegbu.
