Do You Know This Classic Nigerian Sitcom? by naptu2: 1:41pm On Apr 30, 2016
Do you know

1) The screen name of the person in the red tshirt?

2) The real name of the person in the red tshirt?

3) The name of the actor who initially played the role of the person in the red tshirt?

4) The name of the sitcom?

5) The name of the person that wrote this situation comedy? (He was a famous writer and activist).


Clue: You can easily figure out the answer to questions one and four by reading what's written on the tshirt.

Bassey and company I think. The man in red is Mr B. I think there's a character called madam the madam in the show. That's pretty much everything I can recollect about it.

1) Basi

2) Zulu Adigwe (I didn't quite get used to him. I always preferred the person that acted that role before him. He didn't quite get the Mr B walk).

3) Albert Egbe (I first saw him in Jagua Nana's daughter in 1987. He acted alongside Richard Mofe-Damijo and Chinua Achebe's daughter. That was also the first time that I saw Richard Mofe Damijo [he was credited as Evans Mofe Damijo).

4) Basi And Company (8pm on NTA Network from c1988-1990).

5) It was written by Ken Saro Wiwa. He later published a couple of books that were based on the sitcom (I still have one of them). There were many clues within the sitcom that he was the one that wrote it. The most popular beer at Dandy's bar was called Saros Beer and I think there was an episode that featured a bank called Saros Bank.


Mildred Iweka was (of course) my favourite Segi.


Basi And Company (The Transistor Radio).

My favourite character was Alali. He was just one hell of a guy with his hustling spirit grin grin grin grin grin grin

I bet Alali would have achieved some success in whatever he is doing today. He was a real HUSTLER in the Sitcom.
