Meg Otanwa and Patience Ozokwor will share the screen for the first time, “In love and Ashes”, a compelling eight-part drama series set to debut on the 1st of April. The story is about about loss, regret, forgiveness, and the incredible human spirit and its capacity for healing.
Set in Maiduguri, the series showcases a cast that accentuates love over hate and draws the moral conclusion that to overcome extremism, all stakeholders must rise above ethnic and religious differences and jointly fight back the menace.
It is a narrative of hope in the face of disaster, a bitter-sweet tale that highlights the social, humanitarian and moral challenges that bedevil communities and their inhabitants that have experienced violent extremism in north eastern Nigeria.
The series features Patience Ozokwor, Charles Etubiebi, Nafisat Abdullahi, Sani Danja, Tijjani Usman Faraga, Anita Pam and Meg Otanwa.
Watershed Entertainment, creators of the “In Love and Ashes” series, hope the series will address the challenges of the insurgency that has ravaged parts of the North East in Nigeria using television as a medium of communication.
Nigerian Artist 2Baba has recorded a soundtrack for the series titled “IN LOVE AND ASHES”. The corresponding music video directed by Unlimited LA will be launched at the series premiere event scheduled to take place in Lagos at the end of the month.
In Love and Ashes will be aired weekly, beginning from on April 1 on NTA and Ebonylife Tv (DSTV channel 165). Viewers can also catch up with the episodes and behind the scenes content a week after broadcast on the ‘In Love and Ashes YouTube’ page.
