‘Citation’, a movie by Kunle Afolayan, a Nigerian film producer and director, is now available for viewing on Netflix.


The new film debuted via the US-owned streaming platform on Friday as scheduled — days after its premiere.

‘Citation’ tells the story of a 21-year-old female student on a Nigerian campus who takes the case of a trendy university don to the institution’s senate body on account of the latter’s treatment of her.

Subsequent events that unfold eventually pit her world against that of the respected academic, baring the realities that frequently play out in many male-dominated educational environments.


Among those who starred in the movie are Ibukun Awosika, chairman of First Bank of Nigeria (FBN); Temi Otedola, Joke Silvia, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Ini Edo, Yomi Fash-Lanso, Adjetey Anang, Gabriel Afolayan, Bienvenu Neba, and Sadiq Daba.

Speaking on the movie’s theme, Afolayan said: “Citation will create awareness on the violence against women in the public and private sphere. It’ll educate society on enforcing women’s rights.

“The movie will encourage and embolden women to stand up against mistreatment and abuse by a patriarchal society. It has been designed to propel women to aspire to become successful leaders.”

TheCable Lifestyle had earlier reported how the movie’s premiere had united showbiz stakeholders like Clarence Peters and Adedayo Thomas, director-general of Nigeria Film And Video Censor Board (NFVCB).


Other prominent personalities who were present are Ajoritsedere Awosika, the chairman of Access bank; Emeka Mba, former DG of NFVCB; Chioma Chukwuka Akpotha; Sola Sobowale; and Mike Dada, the executive producer of All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA).
