Revisiting Lagos Big Boy: The quintessential millennial Nollywood show

Frank Ugo and Edwin Okolo revisit Lagos Big Boy: the Ndani TV show that tried to depict the Lagos hustle using a cast that on paper understood the hustle best. A lot has happened since the show was released, one of its leads was accused of sexual assault, another has transitioned to become one of the country’s most in-demand MC’s and Dare Olaitan, its director has started shooting his third feature film. It seems a good time as any to ask the important questions of why the show worked and why it eventually failed to capture the zeitgeist.
