The Smart Money Woman series is a show about five friends with different financial habits — Zuri, Ladun, Tami, Lara and Adesuwa — based on the book “The Smart Money Woman” by Arese Ugwu. The film stars Osas Ighodaro, Lala Akindoju, Eby Eno, Ini-Dima Okojie, and Toni Tones, amongst others.

In a nutshell, the show is a breath of fresh air. I loved everything about it. Just like the book, the show is focused on teaching young women how to maximize their finances — an African girl’s guide to financial freedom.

I loved the cast and the different stories they…

That seed happens to be a 30 year old man now. Akeem then travels to Queens to bring his heir home, and of course he agrees because who doesn’t want to…


Georgia Miller has two kids from two different fathers and she moves from city to city to hide from her disturbing past. The 10 episode series tells the story of Georgia and her daughter, Ginny, as they settle into a new life in Massachusetts.

Although Ginny and Georgia had a great mother-daughter relationship, I think Ginny was extremely wild! She was always very rude to her mother and she really had no business digging into her mother’s past. I really can’t stand kids talking back to their parents, for no reason! She was a selfish brat!

Can you believe the…

In order of preference, here are the 5 Nigerian shows I’m currently watching. These are all available on YouTube and free to watch.

  1. Game On S1: Ndani TV are experts in giving viewers heart palpitations with their plots and Game On is no exception.

Mayowa wants a ring and Osaze….well…doesn’t want to spend her money. But I won’t give too much away. Kudos to Abimbola Craig for…
