The African Woman
Tales of Eve is an entirely new form of expression for the African woman, offering her with a distinct voice with which she can finally speak of the place in which she finds herself in the society. In each story, you will meet her in different stages of life - childhood, adolescence, maturity, old age. She is constantly reborn with different backgrounds: wealth, poverty, education and illiteracy. You will discover her struggles, her triumphs; her failures, her victories; her mistakes and her restitutions; her wisdom, her folly; the depth of her hatred and the breadth of her love. Each story intimately explores social, psychological, cultural and even moral issues and the manner in which they are presented to our women.
Season One of Tales of Eve is titled “SIMI” after the lead character Simi. SIMI stars a stellar cast that includes Belinda Effah portraying the lead role of Simi, Tina Mba and Kayode Odumosu (a.k.a. Pa Kasumu) as her mother and father respectively, and other prominent stars in the Nigerian movie industry like Jide Kosoko, Nobert Young, Kate Adepegba, Ireti Osayomi-Bakare and Gloria Young. Most notable, however, is the performance of the emerging stars of Nigerian film and television with the likes of Frankincense Eche-Ben, portraying the mean and unrepentant Efe, Opeyemi Oloni as the jealous and scheming Lillian, 'Zikky Alloy' as Simi’s faithful, yet over-indulgent high school sweetheart, Henry and Gab Liberty as the London trained lawyer Deji, who fights to get justice for Simi.
