According to NEW, Netflix has allegedly spent about 9 Billion Naira on Nigerian film Makers from 2016 to 2022.
9 Billion! It leads one to wonder how many filmmakers and producers from Northern Nigeria had access to this opportunity or how many films currently on Netflix are produced and directed by professionals domiciled in Northern Nigeria.
