The comic story is also billed to infuse strong moral lessons. Confirming the new project at a press conference, Viki Liu, Content Director, StarTimes Nigeria said: “With Okirika series, StarTimes is demonstrating its commitment to satisfying the growing demands of viewers for local content.

I was attracted to the Okirika story the first time I read the pitch. People have every reason why they buy luxurious stuff but might have all kinds of reasons why they choose to buy Okirika. The story about Okirika is very interesting and it’s what everyone should look out for.”

" Even though we are going to be entertaining you, taking out the stress, making you laugh and catching fun, Okirika will also be educative,” actress Iyabo Ojo added.

'Okirika' will also star Real Warri Pikin, Mercy Eke, Ini Edo, Korede Bello, Woli Agba, Broda Shaggi, Pricillia Ojo and many more.
