The Billionaire’s Wife

Flag ghMade in Ghana

A woman from the slums marries a rich, older man, only to find that being a billionaire’s wife in glamorous Accra can be lethal. Only on Showmax.

The Billionaire’s Wife is Showmax’s third Ghanaian Original series, a 10-part drama that will have fans of Dede and ENO hooked from the first episode.

Adepa is a 19-year-old woman from the slums of Ashaiman who marries an old billionaire with the aim of turning her fortunes around, only to find out that being a billionaire’s wife is the toughest thing she’s ever done.

The 45-minute episodes are set in the glamorous, chaotic, unpredictable and scandalous world of the rich and powerful in Accra. Adepa finds herself locked in an endless battle for survival, where backstabbers, schemers and faceless enemies will stop at nothing to prove she is a fraud and a gold digger.

The Billionaire’s Wife stars newcomer Andriana Akua Amegbor as Adepa, with Kingsley Yamoah, alongside Roselyn Ngissah, Ken Fiati, Pascaline Edwards, Selassie Ibrahim, Helen Lois, Ophelia Walker and Godwin Kwesi Blay Ekra Jnr, comedian Foster Romanus, and newcomer Florence Nana Ama Agyei.
