Netflix’s Nollywood film, starring veteran actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo, “Black Book” has reportedly smashed Netflix viewing records worldwide, according to a Mirror report.
The film has taken the streaming platform by storm, remaining in its top 10 English-language titles globally for three weeks, even reaching No. 3 in its second week. Just 48 hours after its release on September 22, it had already been viewed 5.6 million times. By its second week, it was among the top 10 titles in 69 countries, according to Netflix.
Producer Editi Effiong told The Associated Press (AP): “Films are made for audiences, and the bigger the audience for a film, the better the chances of your message going out. The reality for us is that we made a film, made by Nigerians, funded by Nigerian money, go global.”
