naptu2: The "fryover" girl was the village wife of (gosh I've forgotten his name), who was married to Mildred Iweka. His mother wanted a grandchild and since Mildred Iweka hadn't conceived, she brought the village wife as an alternative.


First saw RMD in Jagua Nana's Daughter circa 1987 on NTA 2 Ch 5.
His name on set was Nduka.

Had a HUGE black and white tv set (I think it was Grundig), then in 1981/82 came the Orion coloured tv (there was another coloured tv set, but I've forgotten the name), then in 1985, after dad's trip to Japan, came the beloved Panasonic (I LOVED that Panasonic).


We also had a HUGE radiogram (how many people remember those), then one other sound system that played cartridges, then finally, my beloved JVC.

tpia@:
seriously though, i've been wondering why it seems nigerian television started in the 80s.

what programs did people watch in the seventies?

i know the 60s probably had no indigenous tv so no need to mention it i suppose.


UKONU'S CLUB (1964)
When television came to Eastern Nigeria in 1964, the breakout hit on the programming schedule of Enugu's ENTV was "Ukonu's Club," the raucous variety show hosted by "Mazi" Anyaogu Elekwachi Ukonu. (left)

Mazi Ukonu had travelled to the United States in the 1950s but instead ended up becoming an actor, playing bit parts in Hollywood movies. Returning to Nigeria in the early sixties, he would reign for two decades as the premier broadcaster and comedian in Eastern Nigeria, producing a broad spectrum of television programmes, founding NTV 6 in Aba, and discovering, nurturing and showcasing a host of talents including Chika "Zebrudaya" Okpala, James "Gringory" Iroha, Pete Edochie, and an array of popular musical artistes. Over the course of his twenty-year television career, Mazi A.E. Ukonu was praised in proletarian and intellectual circles alike—he has been cited as Chief Obafemi Awolowo's favourite comedian—and hailed as the consummate Nigerian entertainer.

(Photo by Peter Obe)

Quite a few of the programmes that have been mentioned here actually started in the 1970s. For example, Village Headmaster was aired in the 1970s, while New Village Headmaster was aired in the 1980s and 90s. I'm trying to remember the cast of the original Village Headmaster, I don't know if somebody out there can help me out.

Dr Bassey Okon (1970s, played by Jab Adu), Fatia Okon (1970s, played by Rosaline Birch), Okoro (1970s & 80s, played by the great Jimmy Johnson), Amebo (1970s, 80s & 90s, played by Ibidun Allison), Sisi Clara (1970s & 80s, played by Elsie Olusola, Segun Olusola's wife), Village Headmaster (Femi Robinson [1970s], Justus Esiri [1980s], it was played by another actor in the 70s, but I can't remember his name), The Oloja of Oja (1970s, 80s & 90s, Dejumo Lewis), Boniface (1980s, ?)

@ naptu, it's quite intersting that you remember a lot of tv shows from back then.

All these just remind me of the good old days, when Nigeria was still nice sad. Too bad all they show on tv in Nigeria these days is 'prime time jamz', sound city and the likes. Na wa ooooo.
