Award-winning drama series, Superstory, has premiered a new season titled Godwin.
The new offering is unique in the sense that it stars a multi-talented 26-year-old man who is actually living with Down Syndrome – Solomon Omere.
The TV drama, which has Omere playing the titular character, also stars a number of popular artistes including Kehinde Bankole, Zack Orji, Toyin Alausa, Bolanle Ninalowo, Chinyere Wilfred, Pa James, Cassandra Odita, Jide Kosoko, Georgina Ibeh, Victor Edogun, Scarlet Shotade, Paul Adams, Amara Uwakwe, Tunde Adeyemo, Patience Oseni, Emeka Darlington and Rex Maximus.
The Managing Director WAP, Wale Adenuga Jnr., explains that the production is not about a person living with Down Syndrome begging for anybody’s acceptance.
“Rather, it is about him excelling in life and fulfilling his dreams in a way that you will be the one craving his acceptance. According to the National Down Syndrome Society, one in 691 babies are born with Down Syndrome in Nigeria and Godwin is set to provide enlightenment and eradicate the prevailing stigma.”
