Hear “In Love And Ashes”, an original soundtrack by 2Baba for an upcoming TV series

On insurgency and moving forward.

Watershed Entertainment, has released the first look at their upcoming TV series “In Love And Ashes”, to be aired via NTA and EbonyTV starting at the end of the week.

“In Love And Ashes” focuses on the insurgency that has plagued North Eastern Nigeria for almost a decade. According to the statement released by the production company, “It is a tale that highlights the social, humanitarian and moral challenges that bedevil communities and their inhabitants that have experienced violent extremism in northeastern Nigeria”. 

Set in Maiduguri, the eight-part series will attempt to depict how different ethnic groups can work together to fight terrorism and it’s root causes. The show stars Patience Ozokwor, Charles Etubiebi, Nafisat Abdullahi, Sani Danja, and other notable Nollywood stars. The producers are also “confident that [the] drama series will further raise the level of awareness and moral consciousness of all Nigerians to participate in the recovery and rebuilding process underway in northeast Nigeria”.


To offer more perspective on the show’s message and perhaps help raise awareness, the producers have released the show’s soundtrack by 2Baba with the same title. Produced by Kelly Handsome, 2Baba’s “In Love And Ashes” begins with Xalam strings that situates the song firmly in its context for North Eastern Nigeria, the region the song focuses on. Like the show, the general crux of 2Baba’s song is tolerance and togetherness.
