Netflix’s interest in Nollywood has continued to increase ever since it acquired global rights to ‘Lionheart’, Genevieve Nnaji’s directorial debut and critically acclaimed movie, for $3.8 million back in 2018.

Nnaji had explained that the company’s investments in Nollywood would help budding artists in Nigeria while also promoting Africa’s rich culture in the international landscape.

We have amazing talents but we have not had adequate platforms to showcase them. Partnership with Netflix is a good thing, especially for upcoming artists who want a chance,” she had said.

“We have more stories to tell. I’ve been fortunate to experience how African content can travel and this investment is going to help grow the African creative industry and get our stories out there.”
