In furtherance of the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led government’s drive to boost the state’s creative industry, a new television series, Enakhe, shot in Edo State with 90 per cent indigenous act, is set to premiere on DSTV showcase from September 28.
The project is a product of the Edo Creative Hub, a space created by the Obaseki-led administration to streamline engagements with the state’s booming creative industry. The hub had organised a meet-up with stakeholders in the industry, who had asked for more robust and constructive engagement to boost the state’s status in the industry.
Executive Director of Edo State Skills Development Agency (EdoJobs), Mrs Ukinebo Dare, speaking to journalists, said: “Africa Magic’s new series, Enakhe, is actually shot in Edo, with a cast and crew that is approximately 90 per cent indigenous. This project is being supported by EdoJobs and is introducing creative talent in Edo to the world as well as telling the world that Edo is poised to host first class productions.”
She added, “The showrunner, Mr. Victor Aghahowa is an Edo son, who was one of those hosted by His Excellency, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, on International Youth Day in 2018. The interaction was held with various illustrious sons and daughters of Edo in Nigeria’s creative industry. His Excellency’s message to them was one of encouragement to join hands in building the new Edo and take the state to its pride of place in the world, something they were all passionate about.”
The Primetime series will Premiere on Africa Magic Showcase on the 28th of September along with another new show.
