Presenter AJ Odudu and her mum Florence take a road trip in a series which explores the national traditions and culture of Florence’s native Nigeria in a far more accessible and light-hearted format than anything that has come before. The two Odudu women make the incredible journey with the aim of finding AJ a husband drawing on a Nigerian tradition of parents finding partners for their children.
As she approaches her 30th birthday without a husband or any means of providing her parents with any grandchildren, AJ Odudu and her mother, Florence, make the journey to Nigeria where they embark on a mission to find AJ a husband. In the Badagry, AJ meets Prince Joshua who quickly becomes besotted with her. Moving on to Lagos, the Odudus meet devout clergyman KC and, later, a confident aspiring musician, Isaac. Will AJ have her head turned though when she meets Nollywood star Timini?
