Naija Wives is a reality show that follows the lives of Nigerian women as they navigate their home away from home. From the extravagant parties to the diversity of food, here is a glimpse into Nigerian culture and all the beauty it has to offer. Throughout the series, the women face cultural barriers that come with raising a family in a different country. However, they still manage to remain true to their heritage.
The NW series provides viewers a glimpse into Nigerian culture and all the beauty and diversity it has to offer. The most important part of this series is that it allows Nigerians in the diaspora to feel heard and represented.
The Naija Wives Reality Show came about in 2019 in Toronto when Abby Ayoola and Rachael Omobude saw that there was little to no Nigerian representation on mainstream media. So they decided to come out with Naija Wives to showcase Nigerians living in the diaspora, her culture, food and the way they interact with families and friends.
One of the major challenges that the reality tv show is facing is limited funding. The creators haven’t really been able to make Naija Wives the way that they really want to make it. The Reality TV show is self-funded by Abby Ayoola, Rachael Omobude and Emilians Andrew for 3 seasons In Toronto. Now they are looking for investors to expand into Hollywood, Dallas and Atlanta. With the help of investors, sponsors etc they will be able to bring Naija Wives to the masses and highlight Nigerian culture, food and people.
