The TV satire sponsored by the grandmasters of data, Globacom, “Professor Johnbull” in a new episode aptly titled “Made in Nigeria” has added its voice to the clamour forpeople to buy home-made goods and services instead of exotic ones.
The episode is billed for broadcast this Sunday on DSTV Africa Magic Family and GOTV Channel 2 at 6.00 p.m. with the repeat broadcast scheduled for Thursday at 9.30 p.m. on the same TV channels.
In the new episode, members of the cast unanimously agree that made-in-Nigeria products are not of inferior quality, as most goods in the Nigerian markets carrying foreign labels are in actual fact made in Nigeria.
Professor Johnbull is also scheduled for broadcast on NTA Network, NTA International on DSTV channel 251 and NTA on StarTimes at 8.30 p.m. on Tuesday and Friday, with Anambra Broadcasting Service airing same at 8.30 p.m. on Wednesday and Saturday.
Posers to be resolved by viewers include: Can Nigerian goods compete favourably with foreign ones? Why do manufacturers put foreign labels on goods produced in Nigeria? Why does Jumoke storm out of a party in anger after donning an expensive foreign dress? Who makes Elizabeth to shine at the party?
Featuring the protagonist of the series, Professor Johnbull, acted by Kanayo O. Kanayo, Jumoke (Bidemi Kosoko), Elizabeth (Queen Nwokoye), Flash (Stephen Odimgbe), Jeroboam (Osita Iheme), Ufoma (Bimbo Akintola) and Abadnego (Martins Nebo), Made in Nigeria will depict Jumoke’s nascent character portraying her as not just pretentious but also a patriotic and amenable personality.
Jumoke’s closing remarks and her campaign for local contents as well as the concurrence of Professor Johnbull are high points viewers should not miss in the episode.
