The curtains have fallen on Season 7 of Skinny Girl in Transit ten episodes later. Having tuned in faithfully, we can’t help but feel a tinge of disappointment. Whether the show’s quality took a nosedive, or we outgrew it, remains uncertain. Nonetheless, let’s delve into our observations.

Episode 9 Recap

In this episode, Didi, Shalewa, Derin, and Tiwa gather for a girls’ night, a setup reminiscent of The Men’s Club, where key story points are revealed as the ladies share personal updates. Derin reveals her change of heart about single motherhood, leading to a rift with Dewunmi. Shalewa recounts Elijah’s attempted kiss amid his possible departure from Lagos. Didi also discusses her clashes with Editi over parenthood and her fallout with Ene. However, the episode lacks progression, with no significant story advancements.

Episode 10 Recap

The episode unfolds with Didi leaving Editi, sparking confrontations and reconciliations. Meanwhile, Tiwa and Mide contemplate relocation while dealing with a medical emergency involving Tide. Aunty Dupe and Charles reconcile thanks to Ayo’s intervention. Shalewa makes her move with Elijah, while Editi attempts to win Didi back. However, the storyline takes an unexpected turn as Mide engages in infidelity.

Final Thoughts

The comedic moments featuring Mummy Tiwa and Woli consistently fail to land, while even emotionally charged scenes such as Tide’s hospitalization lack impact. The sudden narrative turn with Mide’s infidelity feels jarring after seven seasons of character development; while infidelity is not uncommon in Nigerian narratives, the introduction of Grace feels like a lazy writing choice. Nonetheless, amidst the mediocrity, Didi and Editi’s storyline shines.


Disappointingly, the season of “Skinny Girl in Transit” fails to deliver the anticipated intrigue, concluding on a lackluster note. Despite attempts to evoke anticipation with Mide’s betrayal, it feels forced and unsatisfying. With a rating of 2 out of 5, it’s evident that the series may have overstayed its welcome, leaving us questioning if it should have ended sooner, perhaps with season 6.

Rating: 2/5

Rating: 2 out of 5.
