“The show cuts across family, romance, friends, people can relate to a story, a romantic partner, business partner, there’s a story each person can relate to. Nigerians will have things to pinpoint as what gets them most.”

The first episode on MTV Base Ghosted deals with the case of Chinwendu and Michael, with him ghosting his woman twice.

Ilo said:

“They are the first Ghosted situation we had to deal with, and we felt how hurt Chinwendu was from being ghosted twice by the same person. First one made her feel guilty and the second one made her feel confused. It's a situation where someone’s mental health is on the line. As Nigerians we care more about what people say and how they feel. It's important they watch to understand that how they feel is so important.
Communicating helps, so they need closure because they don't know what they did wrong, just that their person decided to disappear. When they find out, the void is filled and they now understand what happened and they fix it if it can be fixed.”
