Since gaining popularity in Nigeria in the 90s with "The Rich Also Cry" and "Maria The Los Angeles," novelas have launched themselves fully into Nigeria.

Telenovelas are popular for their dramatics, comedy and suspense, and Telemundo Africa has become a major source.

We have put together three telenovelas worth binge-watching.

1. "If Only I were You"

A drama series about  identical twins, Leonardo and Perico, the show focuses on a self-made millionaire, Leonardo, who decides to forgo his wealthy lifestyle to take on the life of his twin, Perico, who is an honest, cheerful ladies’ man engaged to be married.

Things take a different turn when Leonardo falls for Perico's fiancée,  and suddenly, his wealth doesn’t mean anything to him. While Perico has to choose between his twin's wealth or giving up his fiancée.

2. "All Roads Lead to Love"

A drama series about Eva, who inherits her father’s trucking empire, finds love, settles down to start a family and is fulfilled.
 

Years later, things take a different turn. Between her two troubled daughters, issues ranging from Asperger’s to substance abuse, a sister who envies her deeply, and a best friend who is also her worst enemy, Eva has enough to contend with. Then the serial infidelity of her husband, Armando, sets off a chain reaction leading to intrigue, murder, conspiracy and potentially even Eva’s imprisonment.

Thrown into the mix is her growing attraction for the steamy Pablo. He’s a handsome and noble ex-cop who is ten years her junior. But with a tragedy in his past, Pablo has his own secrets, and it’s no coincidence that his path has crossed with the Soler family.
