Seeds&Harvests, a television series created and produced by Segun Adegbiji on the platform of Primestone Hidden Pearl Production Organization will premier on Africa Magic Urban, Channels 153 on Sunday, November 8. It shows at 6.30pm, with a repeat every Thursday by 5.30pm.
Seeds&Harvests is a satire, a mirror of attitudes, lifestyle and behavior, which shows the consequences of choices people all over Africa make. “The message is novel because we want to transform our society, “says Adegbiji. “We believe no one should oppress or suffocate others; we do not know who they will become tomorrow.
“If we make right choices, if we are considerate of the feelings of others, for wellness of others, we shall have an egalitarian society with mutual love and respect for one another.” In the series, Chief Tunji Gesinde is the Chief Executive Officer and founder of Overflow Advertising Agency. Married to Tundun Gesinde, a flourishing business woman, he wields a lot of influence in the society and is highly respected.
Chief Gesinde is also very fond of his wife and almost indulges their three children, Folarin, Tade and Yinka. He has an almost perfect family – money, a flourishing business, a beautiful, intelligent wife from one of the oldest families in Oyo and children that are doing well. He makes a move to ensure nothing goes wrong with the status quo.
But the lights dim in the Gesinde household as Chief’s move opens the door for afflictions that started rocking the boat of the family. Tundun and Chief gradually drift apart, and the children are affected in various ways.
Each one tries to find a way out of the darkness in the way they think is most appropriate. The Gesinde family grapples with the harvest of the seeds sown into their home.
