Glo's Professor Johnbull Stresses Side Effects of Hard Drugs in new episode

Patience Ozokwo

The next episode of the famed and highly humourous television sitcom Professor Johnbull is titled High People and the drama, which is also a satire, will satirize the effects of hard drugs on the abusers and society at large.

The interesting and exciting drama is sponsored by Globacom and broadcast everyTuesday and Friday on NTA Network, NTA International on DSTV Channel 251 and NTA on StarTimes at 8.30 p.m.

Kanayo O. Kanayo (KOK) plays the role of the retired Professor Johnbull, who remains cerebral and verbose.  He, in the drama, organises a seminar on the adverse effects of drug abuse following certain untoward happenings among his ‘proximate people’.

In this week’s episode, Nollywood star Patience Ozokwor, a.k.a. Mama G, will again make a guest appearance and she will team up with KOK, who acts as Professor Johnbull, to lampoon the use of hard drugs and abuse of over the counter medications by some people.

Viewers in tonight’s show will have a lot to learn from the erudite professor on the effect of  drug abuse. According to Globacom, viewers  need to hear how the professor will describe those who abuse substances. Will he wax philosophical, religious or medical in his  analyses of the social malady. His unique and customised solution  to the problem is a must-hear.

Cavs, Celtics make blockbuster trade involving Kyrie Irving, Isaiah Thomas official


Cleveland gets an All-Star point guard and a bevvy of assets in return for Irving, including a first-rounder


The Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics have agreed to a trade that will sendKyrie Irving to Boston in exchange for Isaiah Thomas. Cleveland will also receive Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and Brooklyn's 2018 first-round pick in the deal. The Celtics announced the deal Tuesday night.
Irving reportedly requested a trade from Cleveland last month, but the Cavs new front office -- at least up until Tuesday -- had yet to find a deal that would satisfy what they were looking to gain in exchange for the All-Star point guard in the prime of his career.
Last season, Thomas averaged 28.9 points and 5.9 assists in leading the Celtics to the top seed in the Eastern Conference. Irving, only 25, averaged 25.2 points and 5.8 assists while playing second fiddle to LeBron James -- one of the main reasons he reportedly requested to be traded in the first place.
