Popular Nigerian filmmaker Mosunmola also known as Mo Abudu is reportedly not in good terms with Netflix.
According to a gossip blog, Cutie Julls, the movie producer and Kunle Afolayan were given huge sums to produce Nigerian movies that will attract a worldwide audience not just Nigerian audience.
However, due to alleged mismanagement of funds from Mo Abudu’s end, Netflix is now permanently moving to South Africa, where the hub would be based.
“Aunty Mo, wetin you do wey Netflix start to dey lose interest? Heard you and Uncle Kunle Afolayan were prepaid huge sums to produce Nigerian movies that will attract worldwide audience and not just Nigerian Audience. Even if not the whole 7 continents at least you could have stretched beyond West Africa. I think even Kemi tried with the Return of the King of The Boys than most of Aunty Mo’s Netflix standard produced movie.
Aunty Mo, so you collected this huge amount of money to produce 6 movies, and what happened? Like when I heard the least amount to produce one movie for Netflix, Omo I commot cap for you o. You don enrich yourself well well. But that’s not the point cuz business is meant to be profitable even if your profit margin huuuuuuuuge. But Aunty Mo, the goal of Netflix was to push Nigerian movies out there just like how the musicians like Burna, David, Wiz, Rema, Tems, Tiwa etc are pushing Nigerian music out there but my aunty greedily and selfishly spoil am. Now Netflix wan Japa to SA even if to cast Nigerian actors. The hub will be SA”.
