Leo's story

Leo is BACK!!! Five seasons strong and Leo’s life doesn’t seem to be getting any easier. Leo’s time in Nigeria has turned sour, and all the hopes he had at first are fading away. A bad encounter with his previous girlfriend Sophie has scarred our Nairobi boy, and Naija no longer feels like home. Escaping the familiar faces of Lagos is an absolute priority. Lucky for him, his boy Femi has moved Down South, providing the perfect opportunity for Leo to escape his woes. Quick fixes rarely do the trick though, and visiting Femi is only a short-term solution. Eventually, your past will catch up with you, and Leo has to figure out what he really wants out of life.
