“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.
