Gifted, an Oakfil production for IROKOtv and directed by Filmboy Adeyemi Morafa, is a Cinderella story of Ebele, a young orphan girl who is raised by her paternal uncle and his wife.
They stopped her education to fund their children’s while she becomes their slave and serves them wholeheartedly.
Her only support is her paternal grandmother but she too is unable to save Ebele from the wickedness of her uncle’s family. Ebele’s passion is sewing and this is a gift passed on from her late mother. When Lolo comes to the village, there’s the hope of light at the end of Ebele’s tunnel.
Fast forward to season three, Ebele’s return from the States seems to be a blessing as she becomes the pioneer of the village’s Fashion Academy but old enemies still lurk and old wounds have failed to heal. With the help of a few good friends, Ebele navigates through village life, this time as a woman with a voice and a mission to accomplish.
