Professor Johnbull Slams Notoriety of Slay Queens


Popular TV drama series, Professor Johnbull, sponsored by Globacom, will Tuesday, present another episode with focus on the concept of slay queens, a tag given to ladies who go after frivolities instead of substance.

The new episode entitled Pepper Dem Gang shows on NTA Network, NTA International on DSV Channel 251 and NTA on StarTimes at 8.30 p.m on Tuesday with a repeat broadcast on Friday at 8.30p.m on the same channels. Veteran TV drama personnel, Chief Chika Okpala, aka, Zebrudayah, makes a cameo appearance in the episode.

A statement from Glo said, “Viewers of the satiric drama will find Pepper Dem Gang not only hilarious but equally educating as the  lead character of the sitcom, Professor Johnbull, acted by Nollywood legend, Kanayo O. Kanayo (KOK), dissects the concept of slay queen, throwing up issues as to why most ladies adopt more than one birthday dates in a year; why most dress-to-kill ladies lack basic idea of the image they portray and why slay queens adopt appellations different from the names given to them at birth.

“As Pepper Dem Gang builds to its climax, viewers’ adrenalin pumps up as they try to unravel what Flash (Stephen Odimgbe) does when duty calls for him to defend Jumoke (Bidemi Kosoko) against one of the biggest slay queens acted by Ese Eriata, one of the fake housemates in the last episode of the reality TV show, Big Brother Nigeria (BBN).

“Viewers should not miss this week’s episode in order to find out why there is unhealthy rivalry among ladies. They will also find out if the concept of slay queen is reflective of the Nigerian culture or not, whether the fake life styles of slay queens tally with their intelligence and what the connotative and denotative meanings of slay queens is.”
