Last night, I came across a show called “Bob ❤ Abishola.” In the show, a man named Bob goes to a hospital, and while there, has a nurse who is a Nigerian immigrant named Abishola take care of him. He falls for Abishola—and that’s all I’ve watched so far 😊
This is way out of the ordinary for American TV, and I am excited to see how they portray Abishola and her Nigerian immigrant family. I wonder why they chose Nigeria; it will be interesting to find out. I pray that it actually sheds light on Nigeria and what is going on there, and that as the show portrays Nigerians, they would not just be seen as “another country from corrupt Africa.” Those in Nigeria are more than statistics—they are people, and I hope that this show allows watchers to see that.
THOSE IN NIGERIA ARE MORE THAN STATISTICS—THEY ARE PEOPLE.
Please pray with me, that this show is 1) culturally correct, 2) puts Nigerians in a good light, and 3) helps shed light on what is actually going on in Nigeria. Thank you, guys!
You can find “Bob ❤ Abishola” on CBS at 8:30pm.
(I was not sponsored or asked in any way to highlight this show. I’m just excited about it!!!)
