Behind The Scenes: GIDI CULTURE

Hi dolls!
 Today I won't be doing my usual makeup or hair talk (actually, a little of hair). I'm sure a few of you have heard about Gidi Culture or seen the pilot. Not to worry if you haven't, this post gives you all the juicy details on the soon to come tv show.

"Gidi Culture" is representative of the Nigerian Youth, and draws from many of their experiences. The show follows several young people from different walks of life as they relate to each other under various climates of prosperity and privation often associated with life in Gidi (Nigeria). The show’s protagonist, Halima Dan-Ladi Adebayo, is a na├»ve upper class Nigerian frequenting graduate school abroad. When a critical accident occurs in her New York City apartment, Halima’s divorced Mother, Mariam Dan-Ladi, coerces her daughter to return to Nigeria indefinitely and attend the Lagos Business School. Life in Gidi exposes Halima to characters and practices that she once ignored and often never knew existed. Will she ultimately succeed in this challenge of familiarizing herself with Gidi Culture and come to terms with her new reality? Or will she plummet into bad company and fall prey to the enmity amassed by some of Nigeria’s frustrated youth? Only time will tell as life unfolds in “Gidi Culture.”

 I particularly love the story line and can't wait for it to drop! it kinda reminds me of "The Hills" Below are some behind the scenes photos. Guess who plays Fatima?

 P.S Some of the female casts are rocking Dorranne weaves in the actual show! *coolface*

Lead character- Halima
