BET Africa (DStv129) has just announced that fast rising Nigerian actress, Chioma Umeala will be returning to the BET original daily drama ISONO, in her role as Ayo, Pastor Abiola’s strong-willed daughter. Playing the role of Ayo, Pastor Abiola’s daughter, Chioma embodies the grace and grit of a determined young woman who has been dealt many wrong hands, but fights to rise above unfair circumstances. 

“I am excited for the opportunity to get back into this role again. Ayo’s character is one I connect with deeply and mirrors my personal journey in many ways. Like me, Ayo is a strong-willed woman who always stands up for what she believes is right, even if it means creating tension. I am glad that through this character, I get to inspire many young black women and artists, like myself, to rise above life’s challenges, focus on their craft and go for their dreams wholeheartedly.” – Chioma

“Chioma brought a burst of energy and colour to Isono’s drama during her debut. We are over the moon on her return to screen, and can’t wait to see the magic she will create with her fellow uber-talented Isono cast members. African culture is so rich and diverse, and Nigeria certainly lives up to this, Chioma’s brilliance in this role elevates black girl magic.” – Senior Vice President and GM ViacomCBS Networks Africa, Monde Twala

Viewers should expect to see the palpable tension between Ayo (Chioma) and Gabriel as they reunite after a long time apart. Lies, deceit and a baby seems to be the major factor in their relationship and a dear friend feels left out. The drama is on full blast as the vivacious Ayo comes back to this tumultuous scene. Chioma Umeala will be returning on the 30th of November as Ayo, Pastor Abiola and Titi’s headstrong daughter, a rebel who constantly challenges her parents, especially when it comes to Abiola’s reliance on faith to heal all ills. She is romantically involved with Gabriel Ndlovu and fans should expect to see a lot on this relationship as she rejoins the show.
