American streaming platform, Netflix Inc. has acquired the movie “Mokalik,” a film by award-winning director and producer, Kunle Afolayan.
In an interview with the media, Afolayan revealed.
“I wish to inform you that Netflix has acquired Mokalik and some other films I’ve made.” He said.
However, Afolayan did not make the amount paid by Netflix to acquire his movies known to the entire public, nor the date of release of the movie on their platform.
The acquisition represents Netflix’s ongoing aggressive interest for Africa motion picture sector in recent times where there is still relatively untapped source of talents and contents.
The company had reportedly signaled that it planned to get serious about ordering/acquiring original series and films from the African continent, created by Africans.
“Mokalik” is a Drama-Comedy movie which features Nigerian Songstress, Simi and Tobi Bakre, of Big Brother Naija fame.
