February is the month of love, and this year, it's also a month of must-watch television shows. If you're looking for something to add to your watchlist, look no further than these two captivating shows that are sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.
First up, there's Nwaanyi Ike, a powerful drama that tells the story of the tragic death of Chief Nnanyelugo Okeke, and the family reunion that follows. His three grown-up children return to the family home, but the tension between his two wives threatens to tear the family apart. Tempers are further frayed when the first daughter Nnenna, supported by her Mother Adaugo, attempts to take charge, to the chagrin of her stepmother Ijeoma, who feels that this is an attempt to take over the duties of her son Nnamdi, the only son of the family.
Chaos ensues when the will is read and is mostly in favour of Nnamdi, whom everyone knows to be the family loafer, thanks to his mother’s entanglement with the family lawyer, Boniface Ikpeazu. Nnenna refuses to accept it and sets out to contest the will while holding everyone to ransom and stalling their father’s burial in the process. As the will is contested and family secrets are unearthed; betrayal, blackmail, manipulations and lies reign supreme in the Okeke home, with each individual pursuing a separate agenda. Nwaanyi Ike premieres on the 1st of February on Africa Magic Igbo channel 159 (DStv) and channel 11 (GOtv) at 19:00 WAT.
