Professor Johnbull Reviews Characteristics of Slay Queens

Published

on

Professor Johunbull, Globacom‘s sponsored TV drama series, this week x-rays the antics of slay queens, a tag given to ladies who have a penchant for frivolities rather than substance.

 

And Veteran TV drama personnel, Chief Chika Okpala, aka, Zebrudayah, makes a cameo appearance in the episode.

Titled Pepper Dem Gang, the new episode is scheduled for broadcast on Tuesday on NTA Network, NTA International on DSTV Channel 251 and NTA on StarTimes at 8.30 p.m. with a repeat broadcast on Friday at same time on the same channels.

 

Pepper Dem Gang is replete with jokes, hilarity and lessons as the lead character of the sitcom, Professor Johnbull, acted by Nollywood legend, Kanayo O. Kanayo (KOK), dissects the concept of slay queen, throwing up issues as to why most ladies adopt more than one birthday dates in a year; why most dress-to-kill ladies lack basic idea of the image they portray and why slay queens adopt appellations different from the names given to them at birth.

 

As the episode builds up to its climax, suspense snowballs and viewers will try to unravel what Flash (Stephen Odimgbe) does when duty calls for him to defend Jumoke (Bidemi Kosoko) against one of the biggest slay queens acted by Ese Eriata, one of the fake housemates in the last episode of the reality TV show, Big Brother Nigeria (BBN).

 

Lovers of Professor Johnbull should not miss this week’s episode in order to find out why there is unhealthy rivalry among ladies.

 

They will also find out if the concept of slay queen is reflective of the Nigerian culture or not, whether the fake life styles of slay queens tally with their intelligence and what the connotative and denotative meanings of slay queens are.

NBC Closes Reach FM Linked to Okorocha, Imo Gov.

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state

National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has closed down indefinitely Reach FM, a newly established radio station allegedly owned by Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state for operating without licence.

 

Alhaji Bugudu Almalik, director, Media Operation Unit of NBC, said in Owerri, the capital of Imo state, that neither the name of Rochas Okorocha nor any member of his family was issued with radio operating license.

He wondered why individual could resume operation of a radio station when neither his name nor his agent reflected in the board of trustees of the firm that applied for Reach FM.

 

According to him, having failed to secure a radio license, the owner connived with some NBC workers to locate owners of approved licenses that were not in operation, saying that when NBC found one that was not in use, the owners bought over their license in the form of partnership, describing it as an action that is not allowed by NBC laws.

 

Furthering, he added that following their lack of regard for due process, the owners in connivance with one Mr. Kennedy Zanders commenced broadcasting in the station without NBC visitation, confirmation nor approval

 

The NBC director expressed bitterness that the act drew the anger of the NBC which since ordered the immediate closure of the station with an ongoing probe on how he obtained Reach FM license.
