Gangs of Lagos, directed by Osiberu, is Prime Video’s first African Original that went directly to streaming upon release.

The crime thriller follows three friends pursuing their aspirations and fate on Isale Eko’s perilous streets. Tobi Bakre stars as Obalola, with Adesua Etomi-Wellington (Gift) and Chike-Ezekpeazu Osebuka (Ify) supporting.

The film brings the spectator into a realistic, multifaceted criminal world of corruption, drug dealing, protection rackets, human trafficking, theft, and murder, with these three heading the cast.
