‘The Johnsons Finally Taking A Bow’ After 13 Years on Screen

In a poignant farewell, veteran Nollywood actor Charles Inojie has announced the end of the beloved Nigerian comedy series “The Johnsons” after an impressive 13-year run. The show, which captured the hearts of viewers across Africa, will soon bid adieu to the small screen.

“The Johnsons”, a delightful portrayal of an average Nigerian family navigating life’s ups and downs in bustling Lagos, has been a staple in households since its inception. Charles Inojie, known for his role as Lucky Johnson, took to his Instagram page to share the bittersweet news.

In a heartfelt post, Inojie expressed his gratitude to the dedicated crew and talented cast who breathed life into the show. He wrote:

“THANK YOU, AFRICA. After 13 years of absolute magic, 13 years of awesomeness, 13 years of being Africa’s most watched show on television, 13 years of being every family’s favorite, THE JOHNSONS is finally taking a bow. I want to use this medium to say a big thank you to @rogers.ofime, @officialthejohnsonsfamily, @nativemediatv__, and @africamagic for the privilege of being #luckyjohnson**.**

The show’s impact extended beyond entertainment, resonating with families across the continent. While it marks the end of an era, it also heralds new beginnings for the talented individuals who contributed to its success.

As we bid farewell to “The Johnsons”, we celebrate the laughter, tears, and relatable moments that made it a household favourite. The legacy of Lucky Johnson and his quirky family will forever remain etched in our memories.

The Johnsons debuted on Africa Magic in 2012 and featured a cast including Charles Inojie, the late Ade Ameh, Chinedu Ikedieze, Olumide Oworu, Susan Pwajok, Seun Adebajo Osigbesan, Samuel Ajibola, Kunle Bamtefa, and others. The series faced challenges after the departure of Samuel Ajibola and the unfortunate passing of Ada Ameh, known for her role as Emu in the family comedy.

Spanning ten seasons and 1830 episodes, The Johnsons effectively conveyed messages of family, friendship, and community, and addressed various societal issues with a touch of humor. The series became a favorite among Nigerians of all ages, offering relatability as it was set in Lagos, portraying situations familiar to many.

The final curtain call for “The Johnsons” is a poignant reminder that all good things must come to an end. We eagerly await the next chapter in the remarkable journey of Charles Inojie and his fellow creatives.

The Nigerian TV landscape will undoubtedly miss the Johnsons’ antics, but their legacy lives on. Thank you for 13 years of laughter, love, and unforgettable moments.
