Zeb Ejiro’s Ripples Returns After 30 Years For A Sequel
‘Ripples: The New Generation’ is a sequel to the original show, which aired 30 years ago.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
After kicking off his return with Domitilla: The Reboot, the industry veteran’s next project is a sequel to his successful series, Ripples, followed by a remake of Sakobi.
Ejiro, the original show’s creator and producer, has produced an updated version called Ripples: New Generation.
The 2023 series follows up years after the 1990s program, which was initially broadcast on NTA in 1988 and ran for five years.
Ripples: New Generation picks up 30 years after the first program. The 13-part series begins with the death of the erstwhile matriarch, Leslie Dehinde-Philip.
The sequel, like the first, is on the lives of the Dehinde-Phillips family and their allies, with a focus on Doris, Leslie’s granddaughter, who finds herself on the verge of inheriting the Dehinde-Phillips wealth and a whopping 75% stake in DP Oil.
After being raised to take over as CEO, Doris seemed to be bound for greatness. However, underlying her flawless existence, she longs for something more elusive – freedom. Her grandmother’s death will influence her freedom choices and makes her reconsider everything.
Ripples: New Generation boasts a varied ensemble of performers and is intended to address the challenging problems of oil leakage and the environmental effects, the war for independence, and the urge to prevail despite all obstacles.
Tope Olowoniyan plays Doris Dehinde-Philips, who is assisted by Daniel Abua, Vine Olugu, Ian Wordi, Debby Felix, Lexan Peters, Francis Onwochei, and Mena Sodje.
Veteran performers Alex Usifo, Barbara Soky, Emeka Ossai, and Keppy Ekpeyong-Bassey reprise their roles as Talab Abass, Daphne Wellington-Cole, Wale Okoya, and Admiral (previously Captain) Hassan, respectively.
On recreating his hit series, the founding father of Nollywood said, “I feel so happy that we have been able to create Ripples: The New Generation because today we have made history. Ripples is the only TV series or soap opera that was done thirty years ago and is back again. No other program has been able to achieve this. Yet, we are doing a mix of the old and new generation.”
Ripples: New Generation airs every Wednesday at 9 p.m. on Africa Magic Showcase (DStv channel 151).
