If you have read ‘The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives’ by Lola Shoneyin, then an on-screen adaptation might excite you. If you haven’t read the book, but wouldn’t mind watching the movie, you should equally be excited.
What this means for literary enthusiasts is that there would be on-screen adaptations of books by Lola Shoneyin and Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka. The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives would be adapted into a series while Soyinka’s play, Death and the King’s Horseman, into a film.
This partnership is a big deal because apparently, EbonyLife TV is the first African media production company to seal a multiple deal with Netflix.
Way to go!
A lot of movie buffs are already expectant. What are your thoughts?
