    Top 10 Most Watched TV Programs In Nigeria

    10. Dear Mother:

    This is a drama series that has been on TV for at least nine years and the producers have improved its picture quality, added new cast and given each character on the show a well-rounded part to play. Since it began showing, it has won a couple of awards and does not appear to be relenting.

    Some viewers value the fact that regardless of the conflict that face the family, all ends well at the end of the day with the characters unchanging. A notable case is the continuous effort of the Mother (Teju Phillips) to get married again. Some viewers think that if she gets married to any of the suitors who seek her attention, it would end her relevance and prominence in the television series. Other viewers dislike the show for that very reason. The latter group is of the opinion that the show should advance to the next level with the Dear Mother married to a good man and that if this does not pan out as expected, they would consider it boring since it has kept on the same theme for the majority of the years it has been on television. Whatever the case might be, the series is generating some debate that reflects the views of Nigerians on single motherhood and spinsterhood. What majority of Nigerians cannot deny about their love for the show is

    the fact that the family stands together in all things no matter how tough the different conflicts arising might be.


    9. Nigerian Idol:
