The suspense filled soap opera sees Toju Aisha Peters (TAP) and Adeola Remilekun Coker decide to start their own advertising agency in a small apartment after both losing their jobs when they failed to land The Walnut Incorporated account.
They start the agency ARC & TAP right there in Adeola’s small apartment much to his girlfriend’s dismay and go through a series of clashing ideas, constant struggle to land accounts (big or small), making a mark in the industry and their never ending story of who actually is boss.
Every year Walnut Incorporation gives AD agencies a chance to pitch to them why they think they should handle their accounts and how they can move the brand forward. Toju and Adeola are determined to get that chance. They do. And the big question of who becomes boss comes to play.
The soap opera is being aired on various TV stations such as MITV, STV and satellite platforms like: DStv, Startimes, CONSAT and GOTV.
