Dear Diary is a new urban family sitcom, created by the very creative content maker Sola Fajobi.
Dear Diary is set to air by 7.30pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays on AIT, starting from February 16, 2016.
Targeting a demographic age of 10 to 55, comprising the young, elitist, upwardly mobile audience, the sitcom is developed with the audience trends and expectations in mind.
The content was well researched and thus gave birth to both the kind of story to tell and the characterisation.
Dear Diary is funny, consistent in characterisation, hilarious, realistic and educative and with a strong positive message.
Kayode Kings left Nigeria to acquire a higher degree in the US 18 years ago and eventually got married to Helen, his London girlfriend, a Nigerian, who had a permanent stay in the US.
Kay finally returned home to serve motherland. His kinsman, a gubernatorial candidate, was sworn in as State Governor.
Kay Kings was appointed as Special Adviser on Culture and Tourism to His Excellency.
Within six months of assumption of duty, he had owned a duplex at a choice location and other luxury items and thus, he makes plans to relocate his family to Nigeria.
