The Nigerian film industry is no doubt expanding and making moves to break into the international market. Movie streaming platforms like Netflix has given some films a chance to gain recognition in many parts of the world.
There is no doubt that some movies on Netflix are good while others leave others wondering why they are on the platform.
Nigerian actor, Bobby Obodo, recently took to the microblogging site, Twitter, to say some of our movies on the site are actually painful to watch.
He added that Netflix is a great opportunity for Nigerians to showcase their movies but they are not making good use of it and are only putting it there for bragging rights.
Bobby wrote: “Most of the movies we're putting out on #Netflix are becoming painful to see. Such great opportunity to literally reach most parts of the world to showcase #Nollywood via the platform, & we fuc*king up. Errbody wants their "sh*it" on Netflix- I suspect for $$$ & bragging rights."
In a subsequent tweet, Bobby said he hopes people involved in the creative process of movie making in Nigeria would start putting out good films to save the country the shame.
