One word comes to mind when I think ofproducer/director Blessing Egbe. Infact two words. Unstoppable. And Innovator. Yes, those two words precisely. Why because she is! Unstoppable because if you know the story of her journey in Nollywood, you will know that no matter what is thrown her way, Blessing Egbe will not back down and be stopped. Then Blessing is an innovator; do you know she was actually the one that started the trend of selling Nigerian films on DVDs? Yes, when everyone was selling films then on then stepped down video cds (vcds), Blessing (who I have always known to be a stickler for quality) insisted on selling her then hugely popular franchise ‘Lekki Wives’ on original DVDs and guess what? Everybody then started selling on DVD! I say that to say this… she is out with something new and innovative. A teen webseries titled ‘Fancy Teens’.
I feel a trend in the air. Blessing through her BConcepts production company has released a teen series on her youtube channel on the antics of some teenagers & (and their families) that attend an exclusive boarding school. I must give her a round applause for shining the spotlight on this often neglected section of the Nigerian society as so much is going on with them. Check out some photos of the series.
Find a teaser on the series below. You can always go to BConcepts channel on Youtube to watch the whole series .
