The Best 10 Nollywood Movies Streaming on Netflix Right Now

The business relationship between Nollywood and Netflix is still new, but growing stronger. In 2015, the streaming platform obtained Kunle Afolayan’s October 1 and Biyi Bandele’s Fifty. The relationship bloomed to a more current level in 2018 with the acquisition of Genevieve Nnaji’s dramedy, Lionheart, in front of its reality debut at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), making it the principal Netflix unique film from Nigeria.

From that point forward, Netflix has obtained more than 40 Nollywood films, from blockbusters like King of Boys, Chief Daddy, and Isoken to less mainstream pictures like Kasala! and Taxi Driver (Oko Ashewo). With the expanded number of Nigerian movies on Netflix, it very well may be an overwhelming assignment to choose the best ones to watch.
