Here’s What Fans Are Saying About ‘Shanty Town’

Shanty Town on Netflix

Shanty Town has kicked off Netflix’s 2023 plans for Nigeria, and fans have a lot to say about it. The 6-episode series about a group of courtesans’ attempts to escape the grasp of a notorious kingpin, but political corruption and blood ties make freedom a near-impossible goal has seen fans embrace the return of veteran actor Chidi Mokeme to the screen, among other elements that appeal to them. It’s not all sunshine and rainbows, though, as the series also has its lapses.

Here are what fans are saying about Shanty Town, now streaming on Netflix.
