Private Project

GuynMan

GUYNMAN is a witty, gripping yet humorous romantic-comedy.

Revolving around the lives of best friends since university. Lagos Journal reporter, ANAYA EKIYE has dated a string of bad guys, the modern types that make mothers hypertensive regardless of your age. Her latest boyfriend is a player/user, but NAYA doesn’t object. While her best friend and nerdy whiz kid, IKECHUKWU OBAFEMI MORDI JNR. is the good guy most mothers want to adopt as their son because he does everything right and for the good of society, not just himself. Ladies adore IKECHUKWU, but more as a brother, mentor or friend.
Together, they complement each other IKE fire and ice. Despite their close friendship, IKE has harboured a secret love for NAYA since University and finally resolves to up his game by confessing this. However, a strange twist of events lead him instead to ask NAYA for a makeover in order to transform him into a GUYNMAN. Fed up of being viewed as Mr. Nice Guy, he opts to become more like what NAYA is attracted to.
NAYA agrees to give IKE a makeover at their weekly lunch dates where she shares her five steps to becoming a GUYN MAN. This propels him from geek to player status and ‘I-Candy’ is born. She helps IKE transform IKE from kind gentleman to ultra-cold and calculating female predator but later regrets creating a monster.
