How she left my Brother

September 14, 2012

I am a ‘black webisode junkie’. I think it’s because there is no black representation on TV in Australia, so I resort to watching webisodes to fill that hole. This is partly the reason why I don’t sleep!

My favourites include ‘The Misadventures of an Awkward Black Girl‘ (USA), everything on the Black&Sexy.TV channel (USA), Don’t Jealous Me (UK) and recently added to my list, Brothers with no Game (UK) and How she left my Brother! (NIG). All the webisodes are fresh, engaging and quite hilarious, but How she left my brother directed by Victor Sanchez Aghahowa is just the icing on the cake for me at the moment.

When I think of Nigerian media in terms of TV and film, I think Nollywood with large doses of sensationalism which becomes a comedy to me for all the wrong reasons. How she left my Brother is nothing like that. It is funny for all the right reasons and features a great cast which includes Eku Edewor, Ivie Okujaye, Vanessa Kanu, O.C Ukeje, Victor Godfrey and Chris Attoh.

How she left my Brother is about a young girl by the name of Ejiro played by Ivie Okujaye who lives with her brother Matt and starts a vlog with the help of her geeky neighbour telling her of subscribers about the issues of her life in particular, getting rid of her brother’s girlfriend.

What I love about this show is that it is short and punchy, but it is also what I don’t like about this show. It is too short! I am always left hanging and wanting more!!! And that’s the beauty of it! They have scripted for 7 episodes, but I am hoping that there will be a couple more in the near future!!!

    Hi, this has to be the latest ‘reply’ in recorded human history, lol. But I just stumbled on this post (when randomly googling myself because let’s admit it, we all do that, right? No? It’s just me? #jusplayn), I’m really thrilled that you like our little show enough to dedicate a whole blog post to it. We are humbled and grateful. As we try our best to get Season Two off the ground. Thanks for the support! Have a great day

      hahaha Victor! I am grateful that you replied. I would love to watch the second season. I am curious to see what has unfolded after that kiss. Great twist though, I wasn’t expecting that.
