‘The Village Headmaster’ TV series returns

TELECOMS giants Globacom has announced the return of classic television series, ‘The Village Headmaster’ after it was created for over three decades.

The drama series was rested in 1988 but has undergone ‘a reboot’ according to a statement yesterday.

“The Village Headmaster remains unmatched and unparalleled in the annals of Nigeria Television,” Glo stated enthusiastically.

“As an innovative technology company committed to excellence, Globacom is delighted to be bringing back this iconic television program, which has undergone a spectacular makeover by Wale Adenuga’s WAP TV to delight Nigerians.

“The drama series will return to television screen on April 24, 2022 and it will be broadcasted on the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) on Sundays, African Independent Television (AIT) on Wednesdays and WAP TV every Friday,” the statement read.

The popular TV drama, which was created by the Ambassador Segun Olusola and Dejumo Lewis, began as a radio program on Nigeria Broadcasting Corporation (NBC), before migrating to television in 1958.

It ran for over three decades and became a purveyor belt of acting talents. The program became one of the most important Nigeria TV soap operas until 1988.

The (late) legendary actor, Justus Esiri was the eponymous village headmaster, having taken over from another thespian Ted Mukoro, who was the first to play the role.

Ace actor Chris Iheuwa will now step into the role in the rebooted series.
