Shanty Town Recap and Review
The show is set in a small town in Lagos called Shanty Town and follows the lives of s*x workers led by a tyrannical handler named Scar. The episode opens with some backstory a couple of family fleeing the invaders after losing everything they had.
However, two of the members of the family are killed, and one of the girls is kidnapped by a drug gang that also operates as a prostitution ring.
In the modern-day, some in the circus wish to be free. They want to leave the connection of Shanty Town with the trade s * xu to start their own life someplace.
The story should have come by now, but it still has to. The first two episodes will be spent in extensive explanation as viewers try to understand the world and its rules. There is little reason for us to keep watching this show.
Instead, the show devolves into horrific violence and gore for no apparent reason. It has no value in creating an impact or a positive character trait.

Unfortunately, the show devolves into horrific violence and gore for no apparent reason. It has no value in creating an impact or a positive character trait.
In addition to widespread smoking, drinking, and drug use, the show also promotes an easy, unremarkable style of filmmaking.
Even the latter looks like a dangling papier-mâché construction. There are loose branches, random action sequences, and absurd supernatural aspects that don’t have anything to do with the plot.
However, the acting of Chidi Mokeme and Ini Edo is the only thing that makes this show acceptable. They showed an extraordinary ability to express many emotions during the episodes.
Shanty Town Ending explained: Who is to blame for Scar’s death?
Chief Fernandez snaps his finger at Scar for failing to close down the illegal companies. Scar, furious, reveals Shalewa’s identity to Femi. Then he seduces Femi with a charmed necklace and commands him to bring him his father’s ring.
Before being kidnapped, Shalewa leaves a message to Amanda, acting as Inem, appealing for help. Meanwhile, Chief Fernandez is called unarmed to save Femi and his ring. But, unfortunately, Scar and Dame intend to kill him there.
Scar gets into a fight with Chief Fernandez’s bodyguard. They kill him but he suffers serious injuries. Scar, injured, visits his office to seek medical help. Instead, a scar rots into the ground of his office, freeing the courtiers.
What happens to the various characters?
Chief Fernandez is sentenced to life in jail for raping a law enforcement officer, but his attorneys are appealing the decision. In his absence, his accountant oversees his business.
Dame Dabota won’t ever be tried for kidnapping Femi because there’s not enough evidence against her. She is still the governor of Lagos state.
Scar’s body and his right hand man haven’t been found. Finally, the ladies of Shanty Town get their freedom, but according to the show, it’s temporary.
The last scene shows a ceremony with drums, dancing, and fire; young ladies are implored not to betray the members. An odd figure dressed in a silk robe then appears, but the identity of the individual is unknown.
