A few weeks ago, a new web series premiered on Ndani TV to the enthusiasm of many Nigerians. The series, OGA! Pastor, focused the camera lenses on a young and married pastor who confesses to having an affair with a church member. The subject of the film, actors, creators and the series runners all inspired confidence in fans across the continent. This is as a result of the previous works by the same crop of people.
However, OGA! Pastor only aired for three episodes before vanishing into thin air without any explanation whatsoever. Already aired episodes were deleted from Ndani TV’s channel on YouTube and radio silence has been the case on the subject.
Fans and non-fans became enraged and they took their disappointment on social media. As is expected with every situation without an official statement or explanation, there have been insinuations as to what might have transpired.
Besides that, it is irresponsible and insensitive to cancel a series thousands of people are interested and invested in without a gesture of acknowledgment through a press release or statement announcing and explaining the cancellation.
