In a new, humour-loaded episode of the TV drama series, Professor Johnbull, three of the characters, Mai Doya (Funky Mallam), Etuk (Imeh Bishop) and Olaniyi (Yomi Fash-Lanso), are worried that Professor Johnbull (Kanayo O Kanayo) is still single, years after he lost his wife and proceeded to arrange a wife for the erudite professor.
The bride to be happens to be Etuk’s sister, who resides in the country’s capital territory. In another plot of the episode titled Arranged Marriage, the mother of Abadnego (Martins Nebo) arranges a countryside girl for her son and goes further to pay the bride price before bringing her to Enugu for him. According to promoters of the series and telecoms firm, Globacom, viewers will have a good laugh as Etuk’s sister arrives Enugu to discover that Professor Johnbull is unaware of the arrangement and Abadnego rejects the “rural” girl brought to him by his mother.
The company, in a press release, urges television viewers to find out what happens next to the arranged “babes” and what the bombastic Professor Johnbull has to say about the whole venture.
The show teaches a lot of lessons for viewers on the subject of matchmaking in African traditional society and its advantages or otherwise in contemporary settings.
According to Globacom, the age-long tradition where parents or relations arrange partners for their children or relations, thought to be ripe for marriage but have refused to settle down, subsists in modern times, prompting the series to examine the practice. Can two complete strangers make good marriage partners? Is matchmaking old fashioned or still relevant in contemporary society? What is the place of compatibility in matchmaking? These are some of the questions the new episode entitled Arranged Marriage tries to answer.
