Mosunmola Abudu, a Nigerian filmmaker and business magnate, is apparently in difficulty with Netflix.
According to Cutie Julls, Mo Abudu and Kunle Afolayan were given large sums to develop Nigerian films that would appeal to a global audience rather than just a Nigerian one.
Meanwhile, due to suspected abuse of funds on Mo Abudu’s part, Netflix is now permanently relocating the center to South Africa.
“Aunty Mo, what do you do when Netflix loses interest?” I heard you and Uncle Kunle Afolayan were given large sums to develop Nigerian films that would appeal to a global audience rather than only Nigerians. Even if not all seven continents, you could have extended beyond West Africa. I believe Kemi tried harder with Return of the King of The Boys than most of Aunty Mo’s Netflix-level-produced films.
Aunty Mo, you collected a large sum of money to produce six films, and what happened? Omo I commot cap for you o when I heard the least amount to produce one movie for Netflix. You don’t enrich yourself well. But that isn’t the issue because the company is supposed to be successful even if its profit margin is huge. But, Aunty Mo, the objective of Netflix was to promote Nigerian movies in the same way that musicians like Burna, David, Wiz, Rema, Tens, Tiwa, and others promote Nigerian music, but my aunty greedily and selfishly spoiled am. Now, Netflix wants Japa to come to South Africa, even if it means casting Nigerian actors. SA will be the hub.”
