“Trust Funke Akindele as an embodiment of poignant role interpretation, she commands the spotlight as SHE – Siyanbola Adewale, a thriving artist whose public humility conceals a realm of avarice, hubris, and machiavellian schemes,” it added.


“A captivating five-part mini-series delving into the intriguing world of stardom & secrets, the series will premiere exclusively on Prime Video from Friday September 29, 2023.

“The series offers a window into the lives of three successful music stars, unveiling the cut-throat rivalries and backstabbing activities they engage in, all in an effort to outshine one another.

“Thinking about high drama, unyielding ambition, and unbridled passion fueling the obsession with fame, SHE Must Be Obeyed is your front-row ticket.”

Speaking about the series, Akindele said ‘SHE Must Be Obeyed’ explores Afrobeats and the challenges of up-and-coming artistes in the music industry.


“So in ’SHE Must Be Obeyed’ you get to see competition, you get to see drama, you get to see fashion, you get to see music, all put into one,” she said.

“And also we had to showcase what young talents go through. They are very hungry to be seen. They want to showcase their talents, unfortunately they do not study their contract, they do not get a lawyer, families that are experienced to educate them.”
