A new season of Funke Akindele’s hilarious sitcom, “Jenifa’s Diary”, will soon hit TV screens and former BBNaija star housemate, Tobi Bakre might feature it. Funke Akindele Bello will also return as Jenifa. Furthermore, the award-winning Nollywood actress will co-direct the sitcom’s new season.
The show has starred popular acts like Lolo 1, Akah Nnani, Tobi Makinde, and Wendy Ubamaka. The show has also featured Tiwa Savage, Falz, Ali Nuhu, and Alexx Ekubo among other artists.
“Jenifa’s Diary” has run for 16 seasons and the show has gotten the green light for a new season. Funke Akindele’s decision to stuff “Jenifa’s Diary” brings to light how much the show relies on the fame on the featured stars to make up for its lacklustre storyline. However, the show is full of holes and lacks continuity.
The introduction of more and more characters to “Jenifa’s Diary” seems to be a desperate attempt to garner more view, not push forward the weak storyline. Most of the acts featured even have very poor acting skills. But that does not seem to matter. Famous faces get paid more, while minor characters are treated like bottom-feeders.
Either way, the Nigerian audience is still going to tune in to “Jenifa’s Diary” when the new season starts. Entertainment in Nigeria serves as a distraction that allows you to switch off your brain when you switch it on.
Enjoy the new season of Funke Akindele’s “Jenifa’s Diary” featuring Tobi Bakre.
