Afolayan took to Instagram to share a photograph of himself and Netflix’s Chief Content Officer, Ted Sarandos.
Nollywood-Netflix relationship has grown in leaps and bounds since acquiring rights to Genevieve Nnaji’s ‘Lion Heart’ back in 2018. The streaming platform has since then, acquired rights to at least 40 Nollywood films including box office hits like ‘King of Boys’, ‘The Wedding Party 2’, and ‘Merry Men’.
Netflix has begun developing two original Nigerian series. This follows the commissioning of two South African series ; ‘Queen Sono’ set to premiere this Thursday and ‘Blood and Series’.
We look forward to the upcoming collaboration with American streaming platform Netflix.
