Roses and Daggers S1Watch full episodes
Dreams set the drama in motion in Roses and Daggers, the new Ghanaian drama series from Akwaaba Magic that is now streaming on Showmax. Winifred and Sesi are two very different young women; both come from poor backgrounds and dream of better lives.
Winifred (played by singer-actress Zakia Kunge) is a young hairdresser struggling to make ends meet as she takes care of her whole family. Talented and ambitious, Winifred wants out of her poor life, and luckily for her, this becomes a possibility when one of her wealthy clients suggests that she moves her business to the city.
Sesi (played by Esi Hammond, Nina’s Mahogany), is a young fishmonger fighting to escape her grandmother’s plans of marrying her off to an old man. Like Winifred, Sesi wants a better life, but unlike Winifred, she’s ready to work hard for it. Leaving everything behind, Sesi heads to the city in search of newer opportunities but whether her dreams will come true remains to be seen.
Roses and Daggers also stars bestselling author and renowned motivational speaker Michelle McKinney Hammond as Marjorie, a doting mother and an insecure wife who grapples with her husband’s infidelity.
Ghanaian A-list actor Adjetey Anang plays Marjorie’s son Joshua, making Roses and Daggers the seventh title on Showmax that the award-winning actor has starred in. Anang’s slate on Showmax includes titles like popular telenovela Dede, action thriller film Cartel: The Genesis, Leila Djansi’s feature Like Cotton Twines starring Insecure’s Jay Ellis, the drama series Table of Men, and more.
Created by Mustapha Adam and Linda Okyere and directed by Richard Danklu, Roses and Daggers also stars Daisy Little Amankwah, Lucinda Ribeiro, Lydia Wilson, Paul Wilson, Benedict Yeboah and more.
