Still basking in the euphoria of its success of capturing Nigerian viewers, AK MediaÂ Concepts has now made its three productions Face-2-Face, Family Ties and Nowhere To Be FoundÂ available for foreign viewers on United Kingdomâ€™s Ben TV.
The Chief Executive Officer of the award-winning production outfit, Benson Akindeju,Â disclosed that he took that decision because fans from other parts of the world haveÂ persistently demanded for the productions.
â€œThe pressure was just too much on us because a lot of people were calling and sending usÂ mails that there is a need for our Super Three to be on international stations. In a coupleÂ of weeks now, the programmes will start showing on Ben TV.Â I also want to assure ourÂ viewers that before the year runs out, it will be on other international TV stations,â€ saidÂ Akindeju who just returned from a foreign tour.
Face-2-Face, as the name implies, is a drama that highlights the happenings in the face me IÂ face you housing system in Nigeria. It is a grassroots drama comedy that appeals to everyoneÂ in the society because of the manner in which serious issues in the society are treated.
In Family Ties, Christy and Brume Akpede are enjoying a happy marriage until troubleÂ strikes. Brume loses his job and Christy is being tried in court for an oil bunkering deal.Â She has to go to jail and Sade, her blossom friend, steps in to take care of her three-monthÂ old baby. The presiding judge, who sentences Christy, has a son who has committed a heinousÂ crime that Sade knows about.
Justice Olayanjuâ€™s son too must face the music. Meanwhile, a romance is developing betweenÂ Sade and Brume.
This drama parades actors like Alex Usifo, Femi Brainard, Thelma Okoduwa and Princess DupeÂ Adetuwo among others.
Meanwhile, Nowhere To Be Found centres on Chibudem Davies, a senior partner with a grandÂ consulting firm dominated by men.
Chibudem returns from America and takes his children to the beach for a special treat. HeÂ grants the childrenâ€™s request of allowing two of their friends to come with them. Hell isÂ let loose as one of the children gets missing. All attempts to know the little girlâ€™sÂ whereabouts prove abortive.
This mars Chibudemâ€™s reputation, as he is being accused of using the child for rituals. AÂ Samaritan eventually finds the girl and handed her over to her parents, but this developmentÂ is being conceal from Chibudem as they (the girlâ€™s parents) keep exploiting him.
Nowhere To Be Found parades stars like Tony Umez, Sola Asedeko, Moji Olaiya, Eniola OlaniyanÂ and Sunday Afolabi among others.
