VIDEO: Actor, Chidi Mokeme, seen speaking fluent Yoruba in Omotara Johnson movie as Nigerians are shocked in Shanty Town Netflix

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Actor, Chidi Mokeme, seen speaking fluent Yoruba in Omotara Johnson movie as Nigerians are shocked in Shanty Town Netflix.

The much-anticipated series by Nollywood actress Ini Edo, ‘Shanty Town, made its debut on Netflix on Friday, as fans hailed their favourite actors in the series.

Fans took to their Twitter pages to hail reality TV star, Mercy Eke, who made her Netflix debut with the series, alongside other top actors like Chidi Mokeme, Richard Mofe Damijo, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Sola Shobowale, Shaffy Bello, nancy Isime and a plethora of A-list stars.

Created by Xavier Ighorodje and Chichi Nworah, ‘Shanty Town’ is a six-part series that follows the story of three Lagos-based hustlers who unite to wage war against the biggest and most ruthless crime ring in the state.

Hailing Mercy for her role, @SteveChuks_ tweeted, “Mercy Eke is ‘finishing’ this acting in this Shanty Town series.”

Another fan, @Thedeluxejojo, said, “Mercy Eke tried for someone who is new to acting, especially that scene when she got teary when Scar was about to kill her. all she needs is some coaching and she is good to go.”

Sunrise. “Shangisha Community, 2004.” The Gist: A woman wakes up her twin teenage daughters, but before they can even get a morning prayer out, gangsters invade the neighborhood with automatic weapons. A man busts into the women’s shack and demands that the mom show her “contraband.” We’re not sure if that means something she trades or her body itself. As the family tries to escape the chaos and bloodshed, one of the sisters is shot, as is the man who helped them escape.

Eighteen years later, we see a group of shirtless men and women mixing and packaging drugs for the local kingpin, Scar (Chidi Mokeme). His business in Lagos’ Shanty Town isn’t just limited to drugs, though; he has many women working for him as sex workers, paying off debts that have been incurred by either themselves or their parents. Meanwhile, Inem (Ini Edo), the twin that didn’t get shot in 2004, is about to be released from prison. She tells the head corrections officer that she’s going to go right back to being a prostitute when she gets out. One of Scar’s women, Jackie (Mercy Eke), has paid off her debt to Scar and comes to him for her freedom. She celebrates with the other women that night, led by Ene (Nse Ikpe Etim), who acts as sort of a den mother to Scar’s prostitutes. During the party, Jackie encourages her friend Shalewa (Nancy Isime) to pay Scar off early by borrowing money from her. But when she brings an early payoff to Scar, all he does is get angry, threatens to kill her, and shows her that, with all the expenses she incurs (rent, food, payment for abortions and STI treatments), she actually owes him much more than she thinks.
Ene gets a call from Inem, asking her to pick her up from prison. Ene is shocked to hear from Inem, because Scar had told her years ago that Inem is dead. She tries to pay Inem to lay low, but Inem insists that she’s going to get back at Scar in Shanty Town, where she belongs.

Perhaps there will be shafts of light on the show, like the kind of new life Jackie will begin now that she is free of Scar’s clutches. And perhaps it’s illustrative of how bleak things are in shanty towns like the one we see in Lagos. But what we’re seeing is a world that’s relentlessly violent, where it seems no one, especially women, has their own say about how their lives are conducted. There may be a little more to Inem’s return to Shanty Town than we realize. The CO at the prison calls her “Amanda,” and we wonder if Inem isn’t really who she says she is. Then again, that’s not made very clear, and the fact that Ene recognizes her means that the whole “Amanda” thing is about something completely different than what we’re thinking. And it may look like Inem’s twin got killed in 2004, but even that’s not certain. There are a lot of holes in the story that need to be filled, but we’re not willing to work through all the violence and grimness to find those answers.
Sex and Skin: Topless women help package drugs for Scar, and we see one of his minions give him a blowjob when he’s on the phone. Parting Shot: Inem arrives in Shanty Town after Scar and his crew drive out. Sleeper Star: We liked Nancy Isime as Shalewa, who shows lots of fear in the deference she has to Scar. Most Pilot-y Line: Scar wears a knockoff Texas Rangers jersey through the first half of the episode. It’s so completely random it’s almost silly. Our Call: SKIP IT. Shanty Town is relentlessly bleak, with lots of violence. Hard pass. Joel Keller (@joelkeller) writes about food, entertainment, parenting and tech, but he doesn’t kid himself: he’s a TV junkie.
