Akin Omotoso’s Brave Ones set for Netflix
The Brave Ones, a South African fantasy film created by Nigerian film director Akin Omotoso, will debut on global streamer Netflix on September 16.
The film follows the story of a goddess who is reborn and has to learn how to harness her superpowers to avenge her sister’s death and protect her family from destruction. The cast includes Sthandile Nkosi, Nomalanga Nkosi, Bonko Khoza, Zamani Mbatha and Keke Mphuthi.
“The show is entertaining, enchanting, packed with lots of drama and a labour of love with swinging tears and I can’t wait for you to see it,” said Omotoso.
“In 2019, a few months after I joined Netflix, I met Akin Omotoso and he had a great story to tell,” said Dorothy Ghettuba, director of original series for Africa at Netflix.
“This became the first show I signed. It has been three years in the making and I cannot wait for you all to watch it! My biggest lesson has been that some things just take time.”
