These Nollywood Actors Are Your Coworkers: What’s That Like?

August 31, 2022

If you walked into your office tomorrow and instead of your normal Gen Z coworkers, you met Nollywood actors instead, what would they  be like?

Ireti Doyle

She’s the general manager who doesn’t say  much but everyone respects her and calls her “Madam”. She has an accent from the time she spent in uni abroad and is always “out of the country” for something not related to work. She also knows how to mind her business, but the day you cross her ehn? Wahala will burst.

Adesua Etomi

The office sweetheart. Everyone likes her. She probably did youth service there and got retained because she’s polite and efficient. The problem is, if you don’t do your work, she’ll be the first person to snitch on you. That’s why she keeps getting promotions and pay bumps.

Timini Egbuson

Female youth corps members are in trouble around this young man. He’s pretty good at his job, that’s why he’s not been fired yet. But women? Women will be the end of him. At this point, he doesn’t even care that people know he’s always pursuing corpers and interns. 

Kehinde Bankole

She’s the very lowkey co-worker that isn’t popular but gets the work done consistently. She’s been at the company for years but she’s still underrated because she doesn’t play office politics. Obviously, she’s very religious.

Patience Ozokwor

The real office mummy. She will complain that your nails are long or your skirt is too short. Her favourite lines start with,  “when I was your age” and “when I was in the world….” She’s also been advocating for morning office morning devotion, but nobody takes her seriously. 

Beverly Naya

Office hot kek. She’s the one who walks in with Mac, iPad, iPhone and iEverything on a ₦100k salary. You can tell she doesn’t really “need” this job, but her father put her here while she runs her luxury clothing line on the side.

RMD 

The no-nonsense company CEO. He built the company from the ground up and doesn’t like drama. He has plenty connections and all the women in the office have a crush on him. 

Toyin Abraham

She’s the one who has everyone’s gist. Her second job is whyning people, and she does it well. She’s also super funny and is always trying to go on leave for one wedding or the other.

Broda Shaggi

He’s the office gateman that keeps hailing you only to stylishly ask you for “something” for the weekend. Annoying mf. 

Odunlade Adekola

He’s good at his job. Very good. Because that’s the only reason they’ve not fired him for all the risque jokes he’s made. HR is always receiving reports about him. He thinks remote work is nonsense and he’s always struggling with Google Meet and network problems.
