Nollywood actor, Bobby Obodo, has berated the quality of movies being put on foremost streaming service, Netflix, by Nigerian film producers.
Obodo shared his opinion via his Twitter handle and urged his colleagues not to ridicule the Nigerian Movie Industry with the rate at which movies with predictable storylines are being placed on the streaming service.
He tweeted: “Most of the movies we’re putting out on #Netflix are becoming painful to see. Such great opportunity to literally reach most parts of the world to showcase #Nollywood via the platform, & we f******g up. Errbody wants their “s**t” on Netflix- I suspect for $$$ & bragging rights.
“I hope creative producers/directors/writers start putting out good movies on there to save us the shame & ridicule that cld befall #Nollywood, before it’s too late. Lazy/predictable storylines, horrible extras, disastrous costumes, etc. Come on, mehn. This opporutnity is golden!”
Some of the Nigerian movies available for streaming on Netflix include Merry Men, Mokalik, The Island, Banana Island Ghost, Wives on Strike, A trip to Jamaica, Chief Daddy and a host of others.
