One thing that can never be taken away from the American-based Nigerian Filmmaker and Cinematographer, Oluyinka Davids, is passion and eye for details, which is evident in his work.
He is set to premiere his new reality series ‘Prim and Proper’, on July 1, 2022 on MoodBox TV.
According to Davids, the series is basically the reality of living in America from an immigrant point of view. Especially Nigerians, everybody wants to ‘Japa’ (leave the country) but are they really ready for the hurdles?
The director, who is the creative head, iFocus Pictures, is of the view that telling African stories that inform and enlighten viewers, reveals It’s an online reality series.
Davids said: “We are premiering the Pilot Episode on July 1 on YouTube (MoodBox TV). There are two main characters: Yemi Balz and Nkem Mbamalu. Yemi is the guy extroverted prim and proper chic; has a good grasp of the Nigerian culture, English speaking, yet very fluent in Yoruba and Pidgin slangs, works with the U.S. Army but has dreams to become a TV show host.
Nkem is the introverted Prim and Proper best friend to Yemi. She’s an IT professional, extremely supportive of Yemi’s dreams and aspirations in life, kind hearted, considerate to a fault such that she is being taken advantage of over wanting to help others. Yemi of course is the voice of reason/Shine ya eye.
Segun Ajayi is Yemi’s friend and Edo Charles is Nkem’s friend. The series which is Created, Produced and Directed by Oluyinka Davids promises to be revealing and interesting.
