DStv viewers will get a first-peek at Rok’s drama series ‘Single Ladies’, starring Nollywood royalty including Annie Idibia, Mercy Aigbe-Gentry and Mary Njoku.
Rok Studios, the award-winning Nigerian film studio, is set to air their latest original series Single Ladies on Sunday 12 February at 20:00 on channel 168. The launch of Rok’s 13th TV series further reinforces the production company’s offering to provide TV viewers with thousand of hours of Rok Studios-produced content.
Directed by actor-turned-director Desmond Elliot, the all-star series follows the lives of five single young women - Mara (Mercy Aigbe-Gentry), Tochi (Mary Njoku), Bidemi (Grace Amah) and Maimuna (Padita Agu) - as they navigate the scary, exciting world of dating in Nigeria to find "Mr Right". The search for such a man has so far been unsuccessful for these five young women from traditional Nigerian families. It is a race against time to snag one for keeps. We follow their friendships, the men they meet, their relationships, their break-ups, their highs and their lows; their successes and failures; their laughter and tears as they search for "The One".
Speaking on the launch, Rok CEO Mary Njoku said: "After a long wait, Single Ladies is finally coming to DStv, in time for Valentine’s Day. For me, Single Ladies is very relatable. Whether you are male or female; single, in a relationship or married; old or young; you will be able to connect with the characters of Single Ladies.This series really explores the types of single women that exist in Nigeria; we have the single lady that is searching for a rich Mr. Right, the side-chick, the lady that is waiting on God for her man and more. Whatever you do, don’t miss out on Single Ladies."
Since its launch in 2013, Rok - headed up by actress and producer May Njoku - has produced over 150 films and 13 original TV series, including blockbusters such as Husbands of Lagos, Desperate Housegirls, Losing Control and Cougars. Rok viewers are the first across Africa to watch new and exclusive homegrown Rok content, such as Single Ladies, before it goes anywhere else.
