In what is certainly an amazing feat, M-Net’s drama series, Tinsel, will be airing its 2000th episode on the 23rd of March, 2017.
The soap opera, produced by Darien Amos, began airing in 2008, and follows two rival film companies: Reel Studios, founded by Fred Ade-Williams (Victor Olaitan), and Odyssey Pictures, headed by Brenda “Nana” Mensah (Funmilola Aofiyebi-Raimi).
The show crossed the 1000-mark point in May, 2013.
Some of its major cast include: Taiwo Ajai-Lycett, Ireti Doyle, Gideon Okeke, Linda Ejiofor, Gbenro Ajibade, and Bimbo Manuel.
It’s no surprise that special relationships have been born from such a long-running show, with cast members Gbenro AJibade and Osas Ighodaro, Chris Attoh and Damilola Adegbite, Iyke Okechukwu and Florence Uwaleke all getting married after meeting on the show.
