A Nigerian Adaptation of Cinderella “Dérè” is Here with Shaffy Bello as the Wicked Stepmother



To be honest, what’s more Nollywood than a wicked stepmother story?

Baffling that no one’s ever thought about it, but thanks to EbonyLife Films, a Nigerian adaptation of the famous Cinderella, “Dérè” is finally here.

The 6-part series, showing on Netflix, stars “I May Destroy You“‘s Weruche Opia as Cinderella and Shaffy Bello as the wicked stepmother.

There’s also Gbenro Ajibade as the charming prince and Ekpenyong Bassey Inyang is Cinderella’s father.

See the trailer, and know that you’re in for a classic Nollywood tale. Can’t believe no one’s ever thought of it!

    This is awesome! Too bad we are so biased towards our people across the pool! Our People are so powerful but there are so many TROLLS that are busy pulling BLACK PEOPLE apart! These are MY people, I am proud to be apart of A Great People! A Brilliant People! People who are like stolen from their land & made to hurt & humiliate each other while the OPPRESSORS make their move! But like at the end of CINDERELLA, EVERYONE LIVES HAPPILY EVER AFTER!
