Africa Magic has debuted a brand new drama series titled ‘Dilemma’ and if its recently premiered first episode is anything to go by, fans are in for another year-round thrill.

‘Dilemma’ follows the love story of two estranged lovers who reunite after years apart and are forced to confront a past they would both rather forget.

Speaking of stories, the show’s writers recently unveiled their writer’s room and the amazing personalities behind the new television delight, an applaudable move seeing as writers do not get as much attention as they deserve in Nigeria’s film industry.
