Wura, the Nigerian adaptation of the international Emmy-winning South African television series The River.
Set against the backdrop of the gold mining industry in the Iperindo community of Osun state, Wura tells the story of Wura-Amoo Adeleke, a perfect wife, a loving mother of two, and the ruthless Chief Executive Officer of the fictional Frontline Gold Mine. In the eyes of her family, Wura is faultless and a saint, but when it comes to running her business empire, she is the ultimate iron lady who doesn’t care whose ox is gored in her path to get what she wants.
Showmax describes Wura as the “first and longest-running Nigerian telenovela” with more than 200 episodes. The show stars all-star Nollywood actors, including rising star Scarlet Gomez in the title role, Yomi Fash-Lanso, Carol King, Ray Adeka, Iremide Adeoye, Ego Iheanacho, Martha Ehinome, and Lanre Adediwura.
