Movie Review: Growing Old


This 12-episode series was produced by C&C Screen Productions and written by Chris Eneaji, Blessing Patrice Alom, Jide Okeke, Andrew Elabor, and Crey Ahanonu.

This show features some Nollywood faves like Ebele Okaru, Jibola Dabo, Joseph Benjamin, Kalu Ikeagwu, and Ken Erics.

Growing Old tells the story of 3 Children, Osas (Katherine Obiang), Ben (Kalu Ikeagwu), and Rex (Joseph Benjamin) and their families, who were invited to their parents (Jibola Dabo and Ebele Okaru) home for the Christmas holiday. Like a typical family reunion, there were unending disagreements, secrets revealed, and love reborn.

So I started watching this show last night, and I just finished it! To say I enjoyed this show is an understatement. Every actor executed his/her roles well (besides the reporter, her acting was too forced), grammar was excellent, and the story line was awesome!

I would have loved it as a movie rather than a series but in any case, I’m looking out for season two!

On a scale of 1-10, Growing old gets an 8.5!

Again, this is available on irokoTV, so go and watch it and tell me what you think!
