The show is produced by Great Light Entertainment in association with Activator Pictures for PANA TV, and will premiere globally in August 2014.

"The Diary of a Nigerian Wife" explores the lifestyles of six upper class Nigerian women, who are recognized figures in Houston’s beau monde, as they live the big life in Texas, the Nigerian way.
Weddings, parties, birthdays, all the trimmings and glitz of African hospitality and fashion, including the highly revered art of tying Gele (a traditional head-wrap brought to life by the one and only Segun Gele), lend a distinct cultural ambience to the show.
