We are falling in love with web tv because it’s just so handy. You can watch from your laptop or the internet and it means you don’t have to miss a show; you can take it everywhere with you or come back later to watch it…that’s the beauty of the web.
So we were on twitter the other day and got this tweet that a new episode of Gidi Up was out. This made us curious and we decided to go investigate, and wow! We’ll tell you why we were blown away by Gidi Up in a moment.
Gidi Up is a web series by Ndani TV. It follows the lives of young people who are in Lagos, chasing their dreams and the price they pay to get those dreams.
Why we Love Gidi Up
It’s REAL! Do you know how frustrating it is to watch a drama that is supposed to be Nigerian and hear Anglo-American-French accents all over the place? It is killing! We are just grateful that the actors and actresses in this drama were real, down to earth and spoke in good old Nigerian accents. It is possible to speak in cultured tones and speak good English without borrowing a foreign accent, so we’re grateful for that.
We also love that the issues are those we can all identify with. A lot of us have had to hustle at one time or the other or we are just beginning our hustle, trying to get our businesses where we dream they should be. So this touches the heart of the matter.
Gidi Up Season ONE
Season 2 is out already, but if you have some spare time and you’re looking for something nice to cuddle up with beneath your covers, then watch the entire Season ONE below. We’ll post the episodes that are out in Season Two for you next week. If you can’t wait, just go to ndani tv on Youtube.com. *Hint: the gorgeous OC Ukeje is in Season 2
