This festive season promises to be a stellar one as today, Netflix announced their first Nigerian Christmas original, A Naija Christmas.
Launching on December 16th 2021, the hilarious film follows the lives of three brothers, Ugo, Chike and Obi and their mother, whose one wish is for her sons to bring home a bride.
Their mother, who is ill, practically drags her single sons about their lifestyle choices until they promise to bring home their partners on Christmas Day. The only issue is that these partners don’t exist and they have to scramble to fulfill their dying mother’s wishes…
Set in Lagos, Nigeria, and directed by Kunle Afolayan, A Naija Christmas features a host of all your Nollywood faves including Mercy Johnson, Kunle Remi, Efa Iwara, Ade Laoye, Abayomi Alvin and the late Rachael Oniga who plays the loving, but relentless mother. Expect appearances from Carol King, Lateef Adedimeji and Linda Osifo.
