Nigerian celebrity Photographer, publisher of fashion website thefancyhub.com and voiceover for Mavin Records shows even more talent with her venture into acting. The talented creative professional makes her acting debut in the drama series called ‘Gidi Culture.’
The drama series has been described as a representative of the Nigerian Youth, and draws from many of their experiences. In the series, it shows the lives of several young people from different walks of life as they relate to each other under various climates of prosperity and privation often associated with life in Gidi (Nigeria).
Toni Tones plays The show’s protagonist, Halima Dan-Ladi Adebayo, who is a naïve upper class Nigerian attending graduate school in New York City. When a grave accident occurs in her apartment, Halima’s divorced Mother, Mariam Dan-Ladi, coerces her daughter to return to Nigeria indefinitely and attend the Lagos Business School. Life in Gidi exposes Halima to a whole new world she never knew existed.
Will she ultimately succeed in this challenge of familiarizing herself with Gidi Culture and come to terms with her new reality? Or will she plummet into bad company and fall prey to the enmity amassed by some of Nigeria’s frustrated youth? Only time will tell as life unfolds in “Gidi Culture.”
