‘Amina,’ a new film by Izu Ojukwu, has set a new Netflix record.
The film, which debuted exclusively on the streaming site, is the first Nigerian film to reach the top 10 worldwide.
Director Izu Ojukwu confirmed the achievement by sharing a video of Netflix Director of Content for Africa, Ben Amadasun, making the news at a press conference.
The film, which stars Lucy Ameh as Amina, examines the rise to prominence of the 16th century warrior and queen.
“Netflix confirms that ‘Amina’ has become the first Nigerian film to hit the Top Ten list globally on its platform,” Ojukwu wrote on Instagram.
“This stunning record-setting accomplishment was made possible by the sacrifices of both cast and crew, whom one can never thank enough”.
Clarion Chukwurah and Ali Nuhu feature in the film, which is co-produced by Okey Ogunjiofor, the producer of “Living In Bondage.”
