Kiddwaya, DJ Cuppy get acting debut in British ‘docuality’ series
Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Kiddwaya and popular disc jockey Ifeoluwa Otedola aka DJ Cuppy have gotten their acting debut in a British docu-reality series ‘Highlife.’
Kiddwaya made the announcement in a post on his verified Instagram page on Friday expressing excitement at being part of the project.
It would be the first acting role for both Kiddwaya and DJ Cuppy in a movie.
The reality star revealed that the docu-series would begin airing on prime time Channel 4 on Friday, September 10. He noted that the show is the first of its kind in British history.
‘Highlife’ follows the lives and loves of a group of ambitious, glamourous young Nigerian Brits all chasing their own idea of success.
The movie highlights a community where high family expectations often impact career choices, relationships and friendship groups.
It is said to be an aspirational but utterly relatable authentic portrayal of British life.
Channel 4 commissioning editor Vivienne Molokwu, who is one of the forces behind Black To Front said: “This four-part series represents an exciting opportunity to portray young Black Britain without a gun or gang insight.”
