According to news site, Newsweek, here are the 10 must-see films from Nollywood.
Part of the article reads: “Behind its better-known competitors in the U.S. and India, Nigeria has the world’s third-largest movie industry. Nigerian films, made under the banner of Nollywood, are ubiquitous across Africa and the industry is prolific, pumping out around 50 full-length movies per week. Many outside of Africa have never had the chance to experience Nollywood’s charms. But now that streaming service Netflix has launched in Nigeria, the country’s cinematic offerings are becoming more widely available.“
Three yet-to-be-released films make their list. Izu Ojukwu‘s ’76, Couple of Days and currently under-fire Ebola film, 93 Days. The over a decade old movie featuring two of Nollywood’s biggest exports, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Genevieve Nnaji, Blood Sister makes a surprise appearance on the list.
Kunle Afolayan‘s October 1 and Nigerian box-office all-time record holder, 30 Days in Atlanta are also included.
