Storyline

Jaja of Opobo was a nineteenth century slave who rose up to become a legendary King, before being kidnapped by the British. 140 years later Jaja's great-grandson, and heir to the throne, returns to Lagos - and becomes the voice of Big Brother Nigeria. The burgeoning media world is Walter's new playground, and he joins a colourful cast of characters in an energetic romp through its screens, sets, and socials. But Walter increasingly identifies with the spirit of the swelling numbers of Nigerians he sees hustling on the street outside his window. Back on the set of The Apprentice Africa, Walter is faced with a dilemma: are the values of ruthless materialism really what he, or his country, wants to embrace? Walter's idea of 'King' and 'country' are changing by the day. When he lands a job on 'Football talent hunt', Walter encounters a spirited young boy in the slums. Giving this young boy the opportunity he so craves - to have a chance in life - makes Walter feel 'kingly' in the most ... Written by Stopford, Elizabeth
