Months after the announcement that the Nigerian Television Authority and Wale Adenuga Productions had set out on a ground-breaking partnership to revive the iconic TV drama series, ‘The Village Headmaster’, it was as of late made known that the recording stage of the first season had been successfully brought to an end, and the promotional trailer had kicked off with airing across Nigeria.
The recording began in November 2020 and was brought to an end in December 2020. While the project is at the moment, undergoing the post-production process which include video editing, graphics, special effects, colour grading, music scoring, subtitling— in accordance with the producers’ promise to deliver a project of global standards, the trailer has been in heavy rotation on NTA, AIT, WapTV, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and other platforms.
