Storyline

Running a company can be challenging, especially if you are a female in a male-dominated industry. Looking to prove her worth, Adaeze steps up to the challenge when her father, Chief Ernest Obiagu is forced to take a step back due to health issues. Ironically, he appoints his crude and eccentric brother, Godswill, instead to run the company with his young daughter. Complications arise when they discover that the family business is in dire financial straits and both Adaeze and Godswill try to save the company in their own way to crazy and often hilarious results.

Wrote better stories at 6years
24 July 2019 | by komiyiSee all my reviews

The storyline is very shallow, i mean she basically ended all her problems by falling in love with a man after selling the narrative of an independent strong woman. I have a feeling Netflix only bought this to paint Nollywood as shallow to the rest of the world.
