Ace Nollywood actor, producer cum director, Kunle Afolayan, in collaboration with Netflix, has released the first Nigerian Christmas movie, titled — “A Naija Christmas”.
Following the announcement of the film produced and directed by Kunle Afolayan, the global streaming giant, Netflix, has released the exciting trailer for this hilarious comedy.
A Naija Christmas follows three sons on their quest to make their mother’s Christmas wish for daughters-in-law come true. Of course nothing screams disaster like trying to find the love of your life, with a ticking clock in Lagos!
Speaking on why A Naija Christmas is the must see film this season, prolific filmmaker Kunle Afolayan, said: “A Naija Christmas movie is real, original, funny and the first Christmas movie of its kind. Working with the late, great Rachel Oniga was massive honor, and her heartwarming performance is typical of her flawless artistry. All roads definitely lead to Netflix on December 16th, for a quintessentially Naija Christmas!”
A Naija Christmas will be launched globally and exclusive to Netflix on December 16, 2021.
The movie tells of a Nigerian mother (Racheal Oniga) who is unimpressed by her sons (Kunle Remi, Efa Iwara & Abayomi Alvin) refusal to get married and give her grandchildren, demands that they bring home their partners on Christmas Day. It is an easy enough request to fulfil as her sons will do everything to make their mother happy. There is one small problem, these partners do not exist.
Key casts are Rachel Oniga, Kunle Remi, Efa Iwara, Abayomi Alvin, Linda Osifo, Ade Laoye, Carol King, Mercy Johnson-Okojie, Uzoamaka Aniuhoh, Segilola Ogidan, Lateef Adedeimeji, Jude Chukwuka and Joseph Jaiyeoba.
