Meet The Cast of Netflix’ Shanty Town

 

Streaming giants, Netflix have released the trailer for the highly anticipated film series ‘Shanty Town’. The trailer was released on the 4th of January and is primed for global release on the 20th of January. Here is Netflix Shanty Town Cast.

 

 

Shanty Town Netflix Cast

The Cast of Netflix’ Shanty Town boats of an ensemble of Ini Edo, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Uche Jombo, Nancy Isime, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Shaffy Bello, Zubby Michael, Mercy Eke, Ali Nuhu, Toyin Abraham, Shaffy Bello, Chidi Mokeme, and singer/performer Peter Okoye– one half of the legendary P-Square.

 

About Shanty Town Cast

The Cast of Shanty Town Netflix Series have been matched with the perfect characterization that makes it easy for us to decipher how Shanty Town Cast are going to interact with each other in the movie and how the power play works.

 

Chidi Mokeme Scar- as The Ruthless Kingpin

Shanty Town Netflix Cast

Shanty Town Netflix Cast has Chidi Mokeme playing the character of Scar- The Ruthless Kingpin who is somewhere at the top of the food chain but he is not the one that commands everything. True, he has some power but he still takes orders from someone.

He is some sort of instrument in the hands of the real power people and he has his own chain of people he commands. However, he is important enough to not be just another piece on the chess board.

Ali Nuhu as the Uninquiring Accountant

Shanty Town Cast has Ali Nuhu playing the role of the uninquiring accountant who knows of all the shady things being done by the lords of Shanty Town, but decides to turn a blind eye to it all and count the dirty money while managing all the operations financially.

He is a perfect example of someone who pretends as if they don’t know what’s going on because it’s safer that way. 

Also, he represents the class of people who are actually skillful at what they do but the circumstance of the economy i.e. unemployment, has made them succumb to doing jobs like working for a drug kingpin.

Meanwhile, his justification is that he doesn’t participate in their nefarious activities but just counts the money.

 

Shaffy Bello as “Her Excellency”- The Disruptor

Actors in Shanty Town

One of the major Shanty Town Cast is Shaffy Bello who plays the character of the woman running the show- popularly called “Her Excellency”. Apparently, she is at the top of the food chain and she runs everything and has a say in everything.

She is kind of like “The King of Boys” in this situation. This is because, as a woman, rising in the ranks of dangerous men is quite difficult, if not impossible.

But she is also nicknamed “The Disruptor”- someone who has the power to create a ripple anywhere she goes and get the kind of attention she wants.

Meanwhile, we get an inkling that wealth has afforded Shaffy Bello the position on top of the food chain of Shanty Town than experience has. She gets her power from her stupendous wealth, and so everyone has to do what she says because money runs the world.

Ini Edo as Inem– The Firebrand

Inem in Shanty Town

A Firebrand is someone who is very passionate about a cause, and there is no one who is as passionate as Ini Edo about getting justice for all the wrongdoing and wickedness that the lords and ladies of Shanty Town have done to one of her own- someone she cares deeply about. As a Cast of Shanty Town, She therefore seeks the help of The Mother- Dark Princess of The Zanga.

We see Inem (Ini Edo) who is the main protagonist return from a place called Zanko and we can tell that’s a cause of worry for Scar (Chidi Mokeme) who is a ruthless kingpin.

Shanty Town Netflix Series Review: Hits and Misses (7.4/10)

 

About Shanty Town Netflix Series

Shanty town is a 6-part limited series created by Xavier Ighorodje and Chichi Nworah. It was directed by Dimeli Ajibola, produced by giant creative studios and written by Xavier Ighorodje.

Shanty town tells the story of three Lagos hustlers who wage war against the biggest and most ruthless crime ring in the state. They attempt to escape the grasp of a notorious kingpin – but corruption and blood ties make freedom a near- impossible goal. 

It’s a crime thriller that’s going to get you off your feet and keep you tense. Netflix described it as violent and gritty, so you know this is something we haven’t seen before.

Shanty Town Cast

Meanwhile, if something is obvious, there is a class divide in Shanty Town Netflix Series and this divide is what creates the conflict between  Lagos Hustlers and the Lords and Ladies of Shanty Town. It is like a society ladder where some people are at the top of the food chain.

Those at the top of the food chain do not only leave crumbs for those at the bottom of the ladder to eat, but also determine their lives and what happens in their town.

Shanty Town is going to delve into the spiritual and political aspects of the underworld in Nigeria’s society.

The series producer, Chichi Nworah said

 “Shanty Town is a unique show in that it is at once different as it is familiar. The tale of redemption will especially resonate with audiences familiar with the grit and hustle mentality of Lagos, and indeed other fast-paced and vibrant cities around the world. We are spotlighting the underbelly of the city, and bringing to life the various character dynamics that exist beneath the cover of everyday “normal life,” thus telling a truly fresh and compelling story. I cannot wait for the entire world to see Shanty Town!”

The crime genre has definitely been on the rise lately with movies like Rising: City of Dreams and Brotherhood doing well in cinemas.

 

Shanty Town Netflix Trailer

The trailer doesn’t reveal much of the story but it does get you excited enough to watch it.

We see Inem (Ini Edo) who is the main protagonist return from a place called Zanko and we can tell that’s a cause of worry for Scar (Chidi Mokeme) who is a ruthless kingpin.

Inem’s mission is to rid Shanty town of Scar, all though she’s a little handicapped as Scar runs an organized crime empire.

We also see explosions, fight scenes and a somersaulting vehicle. All the ingredients needed for a cliché action flick.

BNXN People Cover Lyrics

{Chorus}
I’ve been drinking more alcohol
for the past five days
Did you check on me?
Now did you look for me?
I walked in the room, eyes are red
And I don’t smoke banga
Did you check on me?
Now did you notice me

{Verse 1}
This is glass number 3,
If you’re looking for me
I’ll be somewhere far from sober
Hiding under the tree
Looking for serenity
If you looking for me
I got nobody but me

Alcohol and some weed
And my thoughts from yesterday
That’s always messing with me
And I can’t tell nobody
Cause nobody dey for me

It’s been a lot on my plate
If it showed on my face
Shey you for cry for me
Cos nobody dey for me
So I keep it all
In my safe, locked away for like days
Since I don’t have you
In my space
What else can I say?

{Chorus}
I’ve been drinking more alcohol
for the past five days
Did you check on me?
Now did you look for me?
I walked in the room, eyes are red
And I don’t smoke banga
Did you check on me?
Now did you notice me

About

BNXN People cover lyrics speak to the fact that people don’t really know you and the kind of things you are going through. You might put up a smile and pretend like everything is fine and people still pretend like everything is fine with you also without actually asking if you are doing alright.

It is therefore not surprising that I’ve been drinking more alcohol for the past five days by BNXN talks about how he is almost sinking into depression and acute sadness because he has been drinking alcohol for the past five days to keep his mind off things. But did the people he supposedly calls friends call to find out what’s up with her or check on him.

Or even notice that there are many things going wrong with him.

BNXN People cover  lyrics emphasize that people won’t and don’t know you despite claiming to do so because there are just so many gaps in between and void in a person’s life that people don’t know about.

Buju people cover

It is commendable that this is like a breakout song for BNXN  and it’s already trending and everyone is talking about it.

Infact, Nigeria is getting into that phase of appreciating songs like “People” by BNXN  because it is so Alte/R&B. Meanwhile, the fact that they love songs like this, is just so amazing. This is a deep song that actually talks about people’s mental health and what they are going through.

People cover lyrics by BNXN  is what makes the song so relatable.

Even for those that do not drink alcohol, there are so many things going wrong in their lives and no one will know nothing because once you put on a smile on your face and look good, people assume that you have next to no problems. But, like BNXN  said “People don’t really know you”
