What If The Office Was a Nigerian TV Show?

December 9, 2021

Anyone who’s ever watched The Office knows it’s one of the funniest tv shows that has ever been made. We’ve been wondering what a Nigerian version of The Office would look like and so we took some time out to create the perfect The Office (Nigeria) cast. 

Here’s who would be on Dunder Mifflin Nigeria’s payroll

Michael Scott – Nkem Owoh

There’s actually no one better to play a Nigerian version of Micheal Scott than Nkem Owoh. He has the wit, the charisma to pull off the perfect Manager of a Paper company. 

Jim – Ramsey Nouah

If you look hard enough, you’ll see a strong resemblance between Jim and Ramsey. Ramsey already has the lover boy personality, we can’t say so much about humour, nonetheless, we know he’ll make a perfect Jim. 

Dwight Schrute – Odunlade Adekola

That’s no one half as chaotic as Odunlade Adekola who can properly deliver Dwight Schrute. Odunlade is sure going to deliver the role of an annoying co-worker who’s always going to annoy the hell out of Ramsey Nouah. 

Ryan – Femi Adebayo

Femi Adebayo is so great at playing an annoying person, we are almost tempted to believe art is imitating life (just kidding). If Femi Adebayo isn’t your first choice of Ryan, then you need to re-evaluate your taste. 

Kelly- Ini Edo

Ini Edo already has the beauty on lock and the attitude too. We’ve never seen Ini Edo and Femi Adebayo as love interests, but we already know it would be worth the watch. 

Pam- Stella Damasus

Pam is a TV sweetheart and which other Nigerian TV sweetheart would you rather play Pam if not Stella Damasus? 

Kevin- Segun Arinze 

Can you see Segun Arinze’s face in this picture? He hasn’t even played Kevin yet and he’s already giving Kevin energy. 

Erin- Anee Icha

Anee Icha has never taken on a role and not bodied it. Now, imagine Tony Umez calling Anee “dorrrlinggg” and trying to get her to date him? 

Stanley- Amaechi Muonagor

Another instance where the image is already embodying the energy of the character. Hey, Netflix, pick up your phone and cast Amaechi as Stanley right now. 

Phyllis- Ngozi Ezeonu

We don’t really know why Phyllis is still at the job even though she has a rich husband who’s more than willing to fund her lifestyle. 

Darryl- Deyemi Okanlawon

We know you are thinking we made this choice solely on looks and the answer is yes.

Angela- Oge Okoye

If you have an issue with this casting, feel free to catch us outside.

Andy- Tony Umez

In an office full of clowns, Andy is the office clown/loverboy. We all know there’s no better Nigerian Andy than Tony Umez.

Charles Miner- Jim Iyke

Of course, he’s the drop-dead gorgeous oga who is very wicked and likes firing people anyhow. 

Jan Levinson- Omotola 

Jan is the fine AF boss you want to sleep with. Omotola’s performance in Alter Ego already seals her as the perfect person for this role. 

Jo Bennett- Sola Sobowale 

Need we say more?

Karen- Tonto Dikeh

Is there a chance all of Tonto’s career leads up to her playing this role? Yes, there is. It’s Tonto’s niche to date the most beautiful man in the office and makes his partner’s life miserable.
