Ogas At The Top ” is a quirky political satire web series from Nigeria with puppets. Created by the same team who launched the popular THE XYZ SHOW in Kenya, the web series turns the country’s leaders into comical punching bags.
Some of the puppet personas of Nigerian society to make appearances on the show so far include President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife, former leaders Olusegun Obasanjo and Sani Abacha, Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, comedian Basketmouth and Nollywood actress Patience “Mama G” Ozokwor.
Season two, which has a strong focus on the upcoming elections, kicked off at the beginning of February with new episodes — each running around five minutes long — releasing each Friday. And producers are hoping to see the same success season one brought — the show went viral (with many episodes reaching over 100,000 views) and has been nominated for Best Online Video at this year’s Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice awards in March.
