Yaw premieres comedy series, Sparadise

Sarcastic, amusing and commotions are the best term to define Sparadise, a new comedy series that mimics the intrigues that happen in a spa.

The sitcom, produced by Steve ‘Yaw’ Onu and another original production by StarTimes, premiered in Lagos.

On StarTimes, fans will be treated to a laughter as Sparadise parades casts like Buchi, Yaw, Senator, Tomama, and Tony Akposheri, among others. The series is directed by John Njamah and Patrick Nkamiang; and written by Steve Yaw Onu, Buchi, Senator and I Go Save, among others.

A cross-section of corporate bigwigs including Cash Token’s management team, Nollywood actors, comedians and the press had a foretaste of the series. The sitcom had started showing from August 4, and will be shown every week days from Mondays to Fridays on ST Nollywood Plus Channel on StarTimes as well as the StarTimes-ON mobile app.

Sparadise captures the intrigues and happenings that play out in a spa, from the gossip to all the madness, banters and quarrels that ensue, comically told using notable comedians.

“It’s comedy and whether you like it or not, you can never have enough of laughter; and with the situation of things in the country, we need more of it. So Sparadise is an educational, interesting, interactive, and real-life situation that you just bring in to bear.

“Don’t forget that 90 per cent of the sitcom that you see on TV is our day-to-day reality. It is what is happening to everybody. So, this everyday reality is delivered differently using comics,” Yaw said.
