It’s the first Netflix original film made in Nigeria, directed by Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji. She is credited as a co-writer of the film’s script in addition to playing the lead. Throughout the film, the plot and production revolve around her.
Apart from the importance of keeping a family tradition alive, Lionheart emphasizes the necessity for unity among Nigeria’s various classes and ethnic groups, as well as the wisdom of older generations, even when change is required. It’s a picture with a global outlook that’s yet reassuringly familiar.
THE WEDDING PARTY
Dunni Coker (Adesua Etomi), an art gallery owner and the sole child of her parents, prepares to marry Dozie (Banky W), an IT entrepreneur. Their first night together as husband and wife will be historic after they swore a vow of celibacy.
While there are many of universal themes and scenarios that we’ve seen in previous wedding films, this is a Nigerian film loaded with its rich culture (food, music, and clothing). In spite of this, the picture has plenty of hilarious moments, most especially in part to veteran actress Sola Sobowale’s performance.
KING OF BOYS
Sola Sobowale portrays businesswoman and philanthropist Alhaja Eniola Salami in King of Boys. As a result of her burgeoning political ambitions, she is drawn into a power struggle that threatens everything around her. The only way for her to win is to play a game of trust, without knowing who to genuinely look up to.
This is Kemi Adetiba’s second film after The Wedding Party. Adetiba is reunited alongside Adesua Etomi and Sola Sobowale in this film.
93 Days is a 2016 Nigerian film directed by Steve Gukas and based on the true storey of Patrick Sawyer, a Liberian-American lawyer who landed in Lagos on July 20, 2014. Sawyer had travelled to Nigeria to represent the Liberian government at a meeting, despite being sick. He was later recognised as the Ebola index case in Nigeria. After experiencing severe symptoms, he was rushed to First Consultants Medical Center. Despite Sawyer’s denials, one of his accompanying physicians, Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh, is afraid that he may have Ebola; however, she quarantines him and instructs her staff to be cautious when caring for him. Along with her staff, their sacrificial act saved many lives
