VoD: New Nigerian satire show reached over 160,000 views
Launched just a month ago on leading African VOD platform Buni.tv and on YouTube, the new Nigerian puppet satire show OGAS AT THE TOP has already gone viral, reaching more than 160,000 views.
The most popular clip features President Goodluck Jonathan and First Lady Patience Jonathan in a cheeky remix of Beyonce and Jay-Z's 'Drunk in Love'... titled instead 'Drunk in Power'. The clip received more than 30,000 views in just a week and has been shared widely on social media, including on high-trafficked blogs Bella Naija and Africa Is A Country.
Produced by Buni Media, the production company behind hit Kenyan satire program THE XYZ SHOW and written by Tolu Ogunlesi, Niyi Ademoye and Numero Unoma, OGAS AT THE TOP takes an unflinching and hilarious look at Nigeria's political elite and the other ogas ruling contemporary naija society.
"Nigerians love to laugh. Nigerians need to demystify leadership and the whole concept of BigManism', said writer Tolu Ogunlesi. 'It's great and exciting to be part of a team combining the love and the need. Maybe somehow, just maybe, it will make our country a little less dysfunctional."For more information, contact press(at)bunimedia.com.
