Mo Abudu, a Nigerian business tycoon and filmmaker, is apparently having issues with Netflix.
Mo Abudu and Kunle Afolayan, according to blogger Cutie Julls, received sizable payments to make Nigerian films that would appeal to audiences around the world rather than only those in their home country.
The center would be headquartered in South Africa, but Netflix is now going there permanently due to alleged financial mismanagement on Mo Abudu’s part.
“AUNTY MO, WETIN YOU DO WEY NETFLIX START TO DEY LOSE INTEREST? HEARD YOU AND UNCLE KUNLE AFOLAYAN WERE PREPAID HUGE SUMS TO PRODUCE NIGERIAN MOVIES THAT WILL ATTRACT WORLDWIDE AUDIENCE AND NOT JUST NIGERIAN AUDIENCE. EVEN IF NOT THE WHOLE 7 CONTINENTS AT LEAST YOU COULD HAVE STRETCHED BEYOND WEST AFRICA. I THINK EVEN KEMI TRIED WITH THE RETURN OF THE KING OF THE BOYS THAN MOST OF AUNTY MO’S NETFLIX STANDARD PRODUCED MOVIE.
AUNTY MO, SO YOU COLLECT THIS HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY TO PRODUCE 6 MOVIES, AND WHAT HAPPENED? LIKE WHEN I HEARD THE LEAST AMOUNT TO PRODUCE ONE MOVIE FOR NETFLIX, OMO I COMMOT CAP FOR YOU O. YOU DON ENRICH YOURSELF WELL WELL. BUT THAT’S NOT THE POINT CUZ BUSINESS IS MEANT TO BE PROFITABLE EVEN IF YOUR PROFIT MARGIN HUUUUUUUUGE. BUT AUNTY MO, THE GOAL OF NETFLIX WAS TO PUSH NIGERIAN MOVIES OUT THERE JUST LIKE HOW THE MUSICIANS LIKE BURNA, DAVID, WIZ, REMA, TENS, TIWA ETC ARE PUSHING NIGERIAN MUSIC OUT THERE BUT MY AUNTY GREEDILY AND SELFISHLY SPOIL AM. NOW NETFLIX WAN JAPA TO SA EVEN IF TO CAST NIGERIAN ACTORS. THE HUB WILL BE SA”.
