•The drama is a little too thick for Pierra Makena
• The four-part limited series follows the friends’ attempts to escape being caught.
Netflix's first-ever Nigerian original series Blood Sisters has everyone talking including DJ Pierra Makena. The mother of one took to Instagram to share how captivated she is.
"So glued to #BloodSistersNetflix that I forgot I was helping Ricca do her homework," she wrote about the crime thriller.
"The show 'Blood Sisters' made me realize friendship is more than all these emojis we add to names and hypes we give each other.
No matter what you do in life money shouldn’t be the cause of you choosing a life partner… What was your favourite lesson?" DJ Pierra asked.
The show has generated good reviews for its plot of murder, betrayal, and tests of friendship.
The cast members include award-winning Nollywood actors Kate Henshaw, Ramsey Nouah, Tope Tedela, and Wale Ojo. The series premiered on May 5.
Written by Craig Freimond, ‘Blood Sisters’ follows best friends on the run after one accidentally murders the other’s abusive fiancé hours before their wedding.
The four-part limited series is directed by Biyi Bandele and Kenneth Gyang with creator credits going to Temidayo Makanjuola.
Set in Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city, “Blood Sisters” follows best friends Sarah (Ini Dima Okojie) and Kemi (Nancy Isime) as they prepare for the former’s grand wedding. What should be a happy day, however, is spoiled by groom Kola’s (Deyemi Okanlawon) abusive tendencies towards Sarah, and when she tries to call off the wedding, her family pressures her to stay in order to support their business.
The big day becomes a bigger nightmare, however, when Kemi discovers Kola beating her up and accidentally kills him while trying to defend her friend — all mere minutes before the wedding.
The series stars Ini Dima-Okojie and Nancy Isime in the lead with Kate Henshaw, Kehinde Bankole, Gabriel Afolayan, Daniel Etim-Effiong, Wale Ojo and Genoveva Umeh in supporting roles.
