Nigeria’s film and TV industries have now gotten Netflix’s attention. And now have produced a series, a potboiler called Blood Sisters. Kola Ademola (Deyemi Okanlawon) heads an influential pharmaceutical company in Nigeria, and right after he closes a big deal, he tells the people gathered that he’s off to his wedding. He’s getting married to Sarah Duru (Ini Dima Okojie) at a lavish hotel. Usually, the engagement party is paid for by the bride’s parents, something Sarah’s working-class dad Ifeyani (Keppy Bassey) is chagrined about, but her mom Olayinka (Kehinde Bankole) is ecstatic about joining such an influential family. Sarah’s best friend Kemi Sanya (Nancy Isime) still thinks Sarah holds a candle for her ex. And Kola’s brother Femi (Gabriel Afolayan) and mother Uduak (Kate Nuttal) aren’t exactly in Sarah’s camp, either. It also turns out that Kola is a controlling douchebag, demanding that Sarah go change her dress she’s wearing to the rehearsal dinner. When Sarah’s ex shows up at the rehearsal dinner unexpectedly, Kola confronts her privately and slugs her in the gut; while Kemi wants her to call the wedding off, Olayinka doesn’t want Sarah to throw away this influential connection over ‘one slap’. Sarah decides to tell Kola that the wedding is off, on the day of the engagement party.
