Just when you thought comedy has vanished from television, the much-awaited Funke Akindele Jenifa’s Diary debuts on African Independent Television (AIT) tonight at 7:30PM.
Set to captivate Nigerian TV audience,  Jenifa’s  Diary  is a comedy television series that depicts the hilarious and amazing adventures of Suliat,  a.k.a Jenifa. A secondary school dropout turned hairdresser who lives in a backwater town called Aiyetoro. Jenifa is loud, over-bearing and very opinionated. She nurses the ambition of leaving her community and making something of herself. She is always trying to prove her worth and wants to be recognized and ‘feel among’.
Her competitive spirit with her peers comes to the forefront when she realizes many of her friends in Aiyetoro are in higher institutions.  Jenifa is motivated to leave her community and pursue her dream of attending a higher institution and becoming a huge success and to enhance her status in Aiyetoro.
Jenifa manages to borrow and even swindles one of her illiterate Aiyetoro ‘toasters’ to raise enough money for her exodus to Lagos. Jenifa’s Diary follows this epic, comedic journey as she arrives in Lagos and lets all hell loose!
Jenifa’s diary will be another innovative, ground breaking Nigerian comedy concept. Jenifa is particularly attached to her diary in which she writes down her daily experiences and uses the medium to involve the audience in her thoughts and actions! Everything that is written in the diary including the grammatical errors is transcribed unto the screen and the medium of Jenifa’s voice-over sharing her thoughts further magnifies her quirks and eccentricities!
Directed by Edmund Eraibe, it is funny, educative, entertaining with pristine performances and a rich  flavor set to change the face of drama comedy on Nigerian TV.
It is a perfect set with  robust  cast and  cameo appearances from Banky W,  Beverly Osu, songstress, Waje, Wunmi Obe, DJ Spinall, Amaechi Muonagor, Ali Nuhu and Alex Ekubo , each with their charm and delivery make for an amazingly rich comedy experience.  Other talents in the TV series showing on Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), African Independent Television, (AIT),
And Silverbird TV on DSTV include Lota Chukwu, Kunle Afod, Juliana Olayode Tope Adebayo, Pa Ojoge, Olaniyi Afonja (Sanyeri), Bash and a lot of fresh faces with promising talents.
Tune-in tonight for the premiere of Jenifa’s Diary at 7: 30pm on AIT.
