The Smart Money Tribe is coming to your TV screens soon! The buzz has been building this week regarding the release of the first trailer for an acclaimed adaptation of ‘ The Smart Money Woman’. Zuri, Ladun, Tami, Adesuwa, and Lara of The Smart Money Woman book are being brought to life for the first time. Set to premiere sometime in September, the new series will have all the joie de vivre and #SmartMoneyLessons we came to know and love from the first book, but with some surprise twists.
And from the look of the trailer, it’s shaping up to be a super fun and super stylish first season. There are also some specially developed characters in the mix— and we cannot wait to meet them!
The half-hour series, executive produced by the author, and starring a strong ensemble cast debuts on Africa Magic, this September. The thought provoking 13 episode adaptation explores the relationships of African millennials to personal finance in contemporary Nigeria and how it affects the landscape of their dating and relationships.

The cast also includes Toni Tones (“ King Of Boys”), Ini Dima-Okojie (“Sylvia, Who’s the Boss”), Lala Akindoju (“Your Excellency, Fine”), Eby Eno (“Last Days”), Eso Okolocha (“Forbidden Fruit”), Timini Egbuson (“Elevator Baby”), Karibi Fubara (“God Calling , Ratnik”), Tope Tedela (“Ratnik, The Ghost and the House of Truth”), Seun Ajayi (“God Calling, The Lost Okoroshi”) and Temisan Emmanuel.
