On Thursday, March 16, viewers across the country were delighted as Superstory commenced its new season, titled “Godwin”, which stars Solomon Omere, a talented 26-year-old man living with Down Syndrome.
The TV drama, which has Omere playing the titular character, also stars a number of popular artistes, including Kehinde Bankole, Zack Orji, Toyin Alausa, Bolanle Ninalowo, Chinyere Wilfred, Pa James, Cassandra Odita, Jide Kosoko, Georgina Ibeh, Victor Edogun, Scarlet Shotade, Paul Adams, Amara Uwakwe, Tunde Adeyemo, Patience Oseni, Emeka Darlington, Rex Maximus and many more.
Wale Adenuga Jnr., Managing Director, WAP, stated: “One interesting thing about this production is that it is not about a person living with Down Syndrome begging for your acceptance, rather it is about him excelling in life and fulfilling his dreams in a way that you will be the one craving his acceptance.
According to the National Down Syndrome Society, 1 in 691 babies are born with Down Syndrome in Nigeria and Godwin is set to provide enlightenment and eradicate the prevailing stigma.”
Superstory is Nigeria’s Most-Watched TV Drama, according to MPS Media Report; and the Godwin season is available to millions of viewers nationwide via wapTV (DStv 262, StarTimes 116, GOtv 102, Consat 812, StarSat 189 and MyTV).
