Naidne Ibrahim continues to carve a name for herself as a filmmaker to look out for in new Nollywood. Her next move has seen her latest drama series, Beyond The Veil, commissioned to exclusively debut on Prime Video in the coming weeks.
Inspired by the everyday life of liberal Northern Nigerian women, the series follows the lives of five women living in Nigeria’s capital city, Abuja as they navigate work, love, family and friendship.
Beyond The Veil is concerned with showcasing the richness and diversity of the Northern culture, the beauty of Arewa fashion, lifestyle and tradition, while also highlighting social issues such as polygamy, drug abuse, gender based violence, forbidden relationships and unstable family dynamics.
Showrunner Nadine Ibrahim says about the show:
“This show is a story about women, told by women. The ‘Beyond The Veil’ cast was carefully selected in such a way that they each perfectly embody the characters they were selected to play. They showcase the complexity of the relationship women have with one another through their dynamic personalities as well as their relationships with family, culture and faith. The storyline carries a relatable tone on the reality Arewa women living in Abuja and Nigeria as a whole, face today.”
Beyond The Veil stars Jemima Osunde, Maryam Booth, Norah Ego, Ummi Baba Ahmed, Ame Aiyejina, Norbert Young, Habiba Zock-Sock, Yakubu Mohammed, Rikadawa Rabiu, Caleb Richard, and Di’ja, to mention but a few.
It premieres on Prime Video on March 3, 2023.
