Arese Ugwu‘s dream of turning her best selling book “The Smart Money Woman” into a TV series is taking form and she is completely over the moon.
“The Smart Money Woman” was published in August 2016, and it tackles debt, spending, the consumerist culture of the African middle class, the fear and misconceptions surrounding money and the lack of it. Love, friendships, cultural and societal pressures and the roles they play in success.
Arese Ugwu shared a group photo of the five main characters from the forthcoming series. The Nollywood actors, Osas Ighodaro, Lala Akindoju, Toni Tones, Ebenezer Eno and Ini Dima-Okojie looked stunning and ready to bring the characters in the book to life.
Now the trailer is here!
Arese, the author of the #SmartMoneyWoman took to her instagram and said ” Finally!!!!! @thesmartmoneywomantv The TV series is here! It’s been such a long road but we made magic!
