Showmax has released the official trailer for the second season of their hit telenovela “Wura.”
In the trailer, “Fola seeks forgiveness from Dimeji and Paulina, but Paulina is not willing to forgive him, even though Dimeji is trying to see reason. Meanwhile, Kanyin’s obsession with ending Wura has forced her into even more desperate actions. This time around, it’s something she can’t recover from, as Wura has evidence that can keep her away for good.”
Wura is the Nigerian adaptation of the hit South African 1Magic telenovela “The River,” which scooped an International Emmy nomination for Best Telenovela.
