Netflix acquires One Lagos Night
Global streaming platform Netflix has acquired the exclusive rights to Ekene Som Mekwunye’s film One Lagos Night, which will be released on May 29.
One Lagos Night tells the story of a desperate man who attempts to burgle the home of a wealthy woman but finds himself face-to-face with a crew of armed robbers who have the same idea. It stars Nollywood actors Ikponmwosa Gold, Frank Donga, Ali Nuhu, Eniola Badmus, Gbubemi Ejeye and Genoveva Umeh.
Producer and director Mekwunye revealed the news on Instagram, saying: “Happy to announce that Netflix has acquired the exclusive rights to my film One Lagos Night. We launch in a few days. Can’t wait for you to see this.”
This news comes soon after the movie was selected to be the closing film at Nollywood Week Film Festival, which was held in Paris earlier this month.
