  1. I am not fan of Nollywood stuff and i gave up watching “english movies” as we used to call them by 90% long time ago. I rarely watch them now. I watch just yoruba version lately.

    However, as Joyful Amaka rightly said, this is really peanut payout for Netflix. But it makes sense from Nigerian perspective. It is huge money to her. But if she is American, she would most likely reject the offer. Recall that many of these big actors such as “Rambo” Sylvester Stallone and John Travolta, before they made big screen. they suffered on the streets of New York picking cans and garbage to survive until they could think of something creative. Both of them ventured into acting and wrote scripts which netflix offered them huge some for but they rejected the offers. That money at that time is most likely equivalent to or more than what Nnaji was offered now.

    I am not saying she should have rejected their offer. She made good choice but i am just saying this offer is a peanut. Also recall Netflix paid out huge sum to stand up comedian actors. It is crazy. She could easily make times 3 of this offer later like Rambo and Travolta did.

    Anyways, congratulations.

    • Hian…. See me see wahala!
      Were you there when they bargained for the movie?
      Were you one of the parties present in the boardroom that day?
      Why not congratulate her first for achieving what has never before been done in nollywood before bringing your “offer rejection” tirade?
      Some of you Nigerians are simply impossible!!!

      Sometimes out of sheer hatred or overt jealousy, you make senseless comments and useless suggestions.

      Why not produce your own movie,write your own script and then wait for Netflix to buy it at $2 Billion ?

      Rubbish!
