Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Kiddwaya and popular disc jockey Ifeoluwa Otedola aka DJ Cuppy have gotten their acting debut in a British docu-reality series ‘Highlife.’
Kiddwaya made the announcement in a post on his verified Instagram page on Friday expressing excitement at being part of the project.
It would be the first acting role for both Kiddwaya and DJ Cuppy in a movie.
The reality star revealed that the docu-series would begin airing on prime time Channel 4 on Friday, September 10. He noted that the show is the first of its kind in British history.
‘Highlife’ follows the lives and loves of a group of ambitious, glamourous young Nigerian Brits all chasing their own idea of success.
The movie highlights a community where high family expectations often impact career choices, relationships and friendship groups.
It is said to be an aspirational but utterly relatable authentic portrayal of British life.
Channel 4 commissioning editor Vivienne Molokwu, who is one of the forces behind Black To Front said: “This four-part series represents an exciting opportunity to portray young Black Britain without a gun or gang insight.”

‘Highlife’ follows the lives and loves of a group of ambitious, glamourous young Nigerian Brits all chasing their own idea of success.The British enjoy exploiting minority groups in ways to depict caricatures while teaching their people how these minorities’ thought processes function. Every other day the BBC releases a Wealthy Lives of British Persians/ Indians/ Pakistanis/ Polish/ Nigerians and what-have-you. Never for once do we learn of the indigenous British Caucasian side. Hmm.
Since BBNaija’s Pepper Dem season, it seems being a reality show personality is now a career. Esther and Tacha made it to an American reality competition. Mercy, Ike and Lekan got second breaks in self-themed reality series. Teddy A, Anto and #UltimateLoveRosie decided to compete in another Nigerian reality show. Now Kiddwaya has moved on to something similar. Impressive. Our entertainment sector keeps growing meanwhile politicians hold the semi illiterate masses hostage through punishing policies.
