A Nollywood film, Chief Daddy, will now be available on Netflix worldwide from March 15, 2019.
The Niyi Akinmolayan film, which enjoyed critical acclaim in Nigeria and Ghana, emerged the third highest grossing movie in Nollywood box office history.
Chief Daddy is the third from the stable of EbonyLife Films to be acquired by Netflix – coming after Fifty (2015) and The Wedding Party (2016).
To celebrate this feat, top acts including Funke Akindele, Ini Edo, Dakore Akande, Uti Nwachukwu, Kate Henshaw and other top stars recently stepped out in dashing white outfits for a party at RSVP Lounge, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Expressing her excitement, the film’s executive producer, Mo Abudu, is elated that the African diaspora will finally be able to access Chief Daddy on Netflix.
“We are extremely thrilled by this wonderful opportunity to bring another great movie to the global audience, even while it continues its spectacular run at the cinema.
“We are pleased by the opportunity that this Netflix partnership provides to meet the huge interest in the diasporan community in Chief Daddy,” she said.
