Business Day (Nigeria) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Wild­flower is back on Star­times. The sec­ond sea­son of the ac­claimed Filipino te­len­ov­e­las will be aired from Jan­uary 20th ex­clu­sive on ST Novela E Plus.

Wild­flower is one of the most watched se­ries on prime­time in Philippines and was a real suc­cess in Africa when pre­miered by Star­times last spring.

“We knew Wild­flower had a lot of po­ten­tial but we did not ex­pect it to be­come our most pop­u­lar drama. Fans have been crav­ing for sea­son 2 since the end of the first sea­son” ex­plains Echo Zhao, man­ager, ST Novela E Plus Chan­nel. “We are very happy to start 2019 by broad­cast­ing this amaz­ing show. And be­lieve me, if you liked the first sea­son, you will love the sec­ond one.”

Lead ac­tress Maja Sal­vador is grate­ful for the sup- port view­ers have given the pro­gram.

“We would like thank our view­ers for the love and sup­port they have given us in our first sea­son. This sec­ond sea­son, we prom­ise to give your wilder rev­e­la­tions and wilder plot twists. We hope you con­tinue lov­ing and supporting us,” Maja said in an interview.

Wild­flower, pro­duced by ABS- CBN, is a story of a woman’s courage, de­ter­mi­na­tion, and re­silience to find jus­tice for her fam­ily and for the peo­ple of one town. Driven by hope and love, main pro­tag­o­nist Lily/ivy fights for what is right with­out putting the law in her hands.

Things will def­i­nitely get wilder as ten­sion rises even higher. With Nay Car­lota’s death, Ivy is fur­ther mo­ti­vated to put the Ar­di­entes down. What will Ivy do to give jus­tice to Car­lota? There is also no stop­ping Diego from run­ning for gov­er­nor of Pobla­cionar­di­ente against his brother Ar­naldo. Will he win this bat­tle or will he get played by his own fam­ily? When it comes to love, will Ar­naldo fi­nally fall into Ivy’s bait? Will Diego set aside his feel­ing for Ivy to heed the call of ser­vice?

All these ques­tions will get an­swers on ST Novela E Plus from Fri­day to Sun­day19:50 CAT, two episodes per day start­ing from Jan­uary 20th.

Faithia Wil­liams, Nollywood ac­tor and pro­ducer, has re­cently re­leased new pictures to the pub­lic just af­ter pre­mier­ing her new short movie, which also co­in­cides with the launch of her new web­site.

The pri­vate screen­ing of the short movie, ‘Con­nec­tion’ held at Radis­son Ho­tel on De­cem­ber 29, 2018 was graced by top en­ter­tain­ers. Celebri­ties like Toyin Abra­ham, Eti­nosa Ide­mu­dia, Muyiwa Ade­mola, Kemi Afo­labi, Dayo Amusa, Yomi Fash, Bimbo Thomas, Chin­neylove, Ayo Ade­sanya, Tayo Odueke, Bimbo Ogun­nowo- Afo­layan and more were present just to name a few.

The short movie was writ­ten by Faithia Wil­liams and di­rected by Des­mond El­liot. It stars award-winning ac­tors such as Odun­lade Adekola, Toyin Abra­ham, Kate Hen­shaw, Muyiwa Ade­mola, Iyabo Ojo, Priscil­lia Ojo and more.

The event also co­in­cided with the launch of the ac­tress’ per­sonal web­site, www.faithi­aw­illiams.com where her fans can catch a full glimpse of her life, what she stands for, her works and how to reach her for more work. The ac­tress plans to use the plat­form as a tool to reach thou­sands of her fans glob­ally.

She also used the op­por­tu­nity to re­ac­ti­vate her foun­da­tion for the girl-child. The foun­da­tion will seek to ad­dress is­sues sur­round­ing the girl-child in Nige­ria and in Africa. Some of the is­sues will be brought to bear through ad­vo­cacy, strate­gic movies, give­aways and coun­sel­ing to the girl-child and their guardians.

Faithia Wil­liams has been in the movie in­dus­try for over one decade and has made mul­ti­ple movies. De­spite her longevity in the in­dus­try, her in­flu­ence still stands strong as shown in some of the cin­ema block­busters of 2018 she starred in – Yoruba De­mon, Seven and a Half Dates to name a few.

The ac­tress re­vealed that she does not just want to be all about act­ing but all about mak­ing a last­ing im­pact.

“Many peo­ple have been ask­ing why I am mak­ing the kind of moves I have been mak­ing lately. I want to make a last­ing im­pact in the world. I do not just want to be a fine face in front of the cam­era ev­ery day, I am in­ter­ested in be­ing a fine face that im­pacts peo­ple and act­ing is just one of the ways I can do that. The movie ‘Con­nec­tion’ is about the girl child and so is my foun­da­tion as well. I will be telling more of these sto­ries and do­ing more in this re­gard. It is also why I have my per­sonal web­site set up. I want to be able to in­ter­act and share with my di­rect con­stituency reg­u­larly. More an­nounce­ments are com­ing and as you hear them, please bear in mind that the new Faithia Wil­liams is do­ing all these to make a last­ing im­pact in the world”, she said.
