Have you seen Wives On Strike, and Wives On Strike (The Revolution)? Yes? No?? Well, if you haven’t then you totally need to as Omoni Oboli is launching Wives On Strike (The Series) and though we are not sure why, when, and where, we can only hope that the story line is well put together and not tacky.
It is true Wives On Strike tackles serious issues affecting the female gender, and so we should be all up for it, but let’s not forget that we love a great story and there shouldn’t be any compromise on that end either.
Wives On Strike told the story of a group of women who decided to deny their husbands sex in order for them to speak up against child brides. Wives On Strike (The Revolution) spoke against domestic violence when one of them was beaten to death by her husband.
The trailer of the upcoming series featuresÂ Omoni Oboli, Kenneth Okonkwo, Julius Agwu, Chioma Akpotha, Uche Jombo, Ufuoma McDermott and Kehinde Bankole. Now, we are not sure what the story line will be in the series, and we are not about to jump into conclusion.
Omoni Oboli would be the second movie producer to turn a feature film into a series, after Ebony Life’s Mo Abudu did it with Fifty. Fifty (The Series)Â has turned out to be quite a success and we can only hope same happens for Wives On Strike (The Series).Â
From the trailer we can see that the TV series also stars a new ensemble of Mercy Aigbe, Wofaifada, and Sambasa Nzeribe. Also Uche Jombo known in the movie as Madam 12:30 still running her locally famous restaurant is present, and a pregnant Kehinde Bankole who starred in the filmâ€™s first instalment. While we await the date for the premiere of the series, watch the trailer below:
