Taste of Love revolves around three major families: the Musa-Phillips’, Pepples’ and Rhodes’ families. It dates back to the military era of the 90s in Nigeria, depicting friendship, betrayal and hatred amongst rival Sugarcane plantation families. While bad blood reigns between these families, Kelechi and Hadiza fall head over heels in love and must ride the tides of opposition to allow their love blossom.

Will Kelechi and Hadiza’s love withstand their families’ complications or will they give up amidst the family battles?

Chukwujekwu is one of Nollywood’s newest quintessential and bankable leading men. He was profiled on AfricaMagic’s Jara, as one of the top five actors to watch out for in 2013.

Moka came into limelight in 2009, when she emerged the Face of Sleek, at the maiden edition of the competition. And since then, her profile has been on the rise. Moka, who also has a passion for acting, featured recently in the ongoing hit web series “Gidi-Up” Season one and two.
