An African City is a new web series that follows five successful African females as they return to their home continent. Pegged as Africa’s answer to ‘Sex and the City’, the show will cover topics of love, life and soul-searching. The show’s creators, Ghanaian filmmakers Nicole Amarteifio and Millie Monyo are hoping that the series will push boundaries and help to change public perceptions of how the world views African and the continent. The show stars Esosa Edosomwan, Maame Adjei, MaameYaa Boafo, Nana Mensah, and Marie Humbert.
