This 7th episode, titled “Baby and Bomboi”, addresses yet another germane socio-cultural issue in the Nigerian society.
The episode chronicles the sundry discriminatory acts against the girl-child and the widespread predilection for boys in a patriarchal society like Nigeria.
How does Athan, acted by Stan Kamandi, receive the news of the birth of his fifth consecutive girl? How will the prescient, voluble and magisterial Professor Johnbull react to this societal bane? What will be the reactions of the regular members of the cast to the plight of the girl-child?
Does the sex of a child determine how far the child will go in life? Is a male child more important than the female child? Given the same affection and care, will the girl-child thrive like her male counterpart?
