So, to commemorate the 10th year of the debut of the sitcom, Egbe is on a location somewhere in Africa with a band of notable cast and crewmembers, helming the tenth anniversary edition of the sitcom, which she has titled Lekki Wives The Reunion.

Starring some of Nollywood’s best including Rita Dominic, Kiki Omeili, Joselyn Dumas, Seun Akindele and Kathrine Obiang, the shoot for the comeback series entered day 23 by this Friday and there are indications that the shoot will last many more weeks more.

The University of Calabar graduate of theatre arts who also hold a Master in Film With Practice from the University of Kent had weeks ago teased fans on her Instagram handle with a poster for this follow-up diet. Most members of the cast of the series took to the comment section to drop glowing comments minutes after Egbe, a member of the Academy of Motion Picture hit the sent button.

The original series, Lekki Wives, debuted between 2013 and 2015 and it starred notable actors such as Kiki Omeili (Loveth), Keira Hewatch (Peace), Adaora Ukoh (Miranda), Chinonso Young (Cleopatra), and Katherine Obiang (Uju). The series chronicles the struggles of five women who reside in the affluent section of Lagos.
