20 years After: PALACE Returns With A Bang! *Why Location Was Moved To Abuja + Exclusive Location Shots


Rested, Popular must watch Soap opera, Palace, has returned to the screen after 20 years,but with new features.

The Soap which has veterans Tunji Bamishigbin and Ralph Nwadike as producers has however moved location from its original base in Lagos to the Nigeria capital city of Abuja, this is however, not without a huge price.

According to Barrister Bamishigbin who is also reputed for his record breaking Soaps and  movie productions, the recording of the revived Soap was moved to the Federal Capital Territory for class, panache and convenience.

Informing that the story line continues from where it was suspended 20  years ago, Bamishigbin said though moving the recording to Abuja has been very challenging financially, he added however that the sacrifice is worth it, considering that Abuja is not as congested as Lagos while recording time is easily met as against Lagos where it’s almost difficult to meet up with schedules as a result of the ever congested vehicular traffic.

” Recording in Abuja is very challenging, especially when we consider the areas of cost of flying casts from Lagos, accommodation  and other logistics that have shot up considerably ,our cost of recording per episode from the initial budget of N3m.”

Currently showing on AIT by 9.00pm every Sunday, Bamishigbin declared that if there was anything called Palace in the past, what is being showcased now is Super Palace. This he said, is as a result of the improvement in the technology, quality of picture and the glamour which he described as super.

Though some of the acts who were part of the set up over 20 years ago like Funsho Adeolu and  Jide Kosoko, are still involved in the recording, other acts like Sola Shobowale, Lara Owoeye-Wise, Desmond Elliot and Akin Lewis among others are new entrants.
