Popular actors, Lanre Balogun and Jaye Kuti who starred in the just completed first season of a family soap opera entitled: “Family First”, produced by the Rare Edge Media, have assured their fans that the production would not only entertain, but also correct vices and ills in the families and society at large.
According to Kuti, “I was excited to take this script because I discovered that it is a good one and will impact the society. It is full of lessons and also entertaining. We need to remind people that we need to make things right from the four corners of our homes and this is one of the ways we can spread the message.”
Balogun, who played the lead role of a retired military officer, noted that he was impressed about the production as it will foster family values, love, good parenting, patriotism, loyalty and contribute to nation building.
The comic-like drama series, which is set to be premiered on August 16 in five cities will be used to address general family issues, adoption or self-procreation, mothers and their relationship with their children and husbands; their sexuality and social commentary issues as they affect the family.
The excutive producer, Mr Leye Fabusoro, told R that the movie is unique and will educate a wide range of audience, while he also noted that the initiative was not to compete with others, but to add value to society.
“This sitcom will explore the role of the family unit in opinion formation, individual education, example pool and behavioural model from its place as the initial contact point for every member of the society,” he added.
The Line Producer, Tolu Fagbure, also stated that ‘Family First’ is about a family of five with different individual traits, but must still come together to share common goals and appreciate special moments.
