The new star-studded satire on television, Professor Johnbull, sponsored by data grand masters, Globacom, will pay attention to the phenomenon of male-child preference in African Culture.
In the seventh episode titled Baby Bomboi, the drama exposes the various discriminatory acts against baby girls and the prevalent absorption with male children in the Nigerian society.
The drama series explores and addresses emotional and social questions like the chances of a girl child to thrive in life, compared to the chances of her male counterpart. Creatively and expertly weaving humour, drama with expository dialogue, the episode will pose the question of whether the sex of a baby determines how far the child will go in life and whether a male child is more important in the family than the female child?
Who is Athan, (Stan Kamandi)? How does he receive the news of the birth of his fifth consecutive girl? What will be the reactions of Professor Johnbull to the birth of the girl-child? And how will the erudite, verbose and magisterial Professor Johnbull respond to the whole hullabaloo?
According to sponsors of the program, Globacom, viewers will find out the answers to the posers on Baby Bomboi broadcasting on Tuesday at 8.30p.m. on NTA Network, NTA International on DSTV Channel 251 and NTA on StarTimes. The repeat broadcast comes on air on the same channels on Friday and at the same time.
“Baby Bomboi promises to be both hilarious and thought provoking,” Globacom concluded.
