Dating in Lagos is a whole mess for women, given the kinds of men living in the city. From the married men who downplay their marital status to the scummy young men who have misogynistic tendencies, it’s hard out here for ladies looking for love.
This is what Nengi Adoki seeks to portray in her new series, The Most Toasted Girl In Lagos. On the confessional style show, we see hilarious re-enactments of different Lagos dating scenarios from a single woman’s perspective. As expected, the men do the most to get the woman’s attention – from the Igbo man who threw money at her to the married man who claimed to ‘receive a spiritual revelation about making her his wife’.
The Most Toasted Girl In Lagos highlights a different type of man in each episode and we can’t wait to see the rest of it. Starring and executive-produced by Nengi Adoki, the show joins other popular female-led series like Skinny Girl In Transit and Rumour Has It which all focus on millennial women’s struggles. With only three episodes in, the hilarious show already has us hooked and hopefully, we will get more episodes soon.
