Bunmi Davis will reprise his role as owner of the popular UNILAG restaurant and hangout spot Jeka Play.
Named after popular UNILAG restaurant and hangout spot “Jeka Play’, the sitcom will have Davis reprising his role as the owner of the popular hangout spot.
Set to premiere on May 31, the sitcom is based on the interesting everyday events and happenings at Jeka Play, which is considered the centre of the UNILAG social scene.
“My experience of running Jeka Play at UNILAG has been a very interesting one because by nature of the kind of venue it is and the campus environment around, we get some really interesting characters coming in all the time and there is never a dull moment with them around,” Davies said on the inspiration behind the show.
“From the genuinely beautiful girls and guys to the “I must belong by force” students, right down to the aristos, not forgetting the student politicians with good, bad and funny motives, and of course a few randy lecturers. It occurred to me that these everyday comedic experiences at Jeka Play should be promoted to a wider audience thus the idea for the sitcom was born,” he added.
The show also features appearances from Hafeez Oyetoro, Wazobia FM Presenter Nedu amongst others.
Davis is popular for his comedy show "Stand Up Nigeria," a platform for upcoming stand-up comedians to showcase their talents.
Jeka Play premieres on TV Continental, Star Times Channel 115, at 6:30PM.
