EbonyLife Films, creators and producers of Fifty, The Wedding Party movies, The Royal Hibiscus Hotel and Chief Daddy, is pleased to announce that Your Excellency, one of Nollywood’s highest-grossing movies, is now exclusively streaming on Netflix. The announcement follows recent news of a groundbreaking deal between Nigeria’s most successful studio and the world’s largest video-streaming service.
Mo Abudu, founder and CEO of EbonyLife, is excited about their deepening relationship with Netflix. “Your Excellency did very well in Nigeria because of its funny but earnest look at a Trump-like, political underdog trying to become president – it’s sure to strike a chord with viewers around the world.” she said.
Your Excellency tells the story of a bumbling, billionaire businessman and failed presidential candidate, who becomes a credible contender when his dance moves and gaffes ignite social media. Helmed by Funke Akindele-Bello, making her directorial debut, the movie boasts a star-studded cast of Nollywood favourites, including: Funke Akindele-Bello, Akin Lewis, Kemi ‘Lala’ Akindoju, Shaffy Bello, Kunle Coker, Eku Edewor, Emmanuel ‘EmmaOMG’ Edunjobi, Alexx Ekubo, Oreka Godis, Osas Ighodaro, Mike Iheuwa, Aletile ‘Seyi Law’ Lawrence, Bimbo Manuel, Deyemi Okanlawon, Ini Dima-Okojie, Chioma ‘Chigul’ Omeruah, Ikechukwu Onunaku, Helen Paul and Toni Tones.
