NETFLIX TEAMS UP WITH JOHN BOYEGA TO PRODUCE AFRICAN-BASED CONTENT

 

Nigerian-British actor, John Boyega is set to take up production on a slate of non-English speaking feature films in partnership with Netflix. The Star Wars Alumni will be carrying out this project through his production company, ‘Upper Room Productions’.

The multiyear deal comes as not much of a surprise since the streaming company has made recent moves in the continent – the release of Queen Sono, its first original African content and launching in Nigeria. The African continent is one with an untapped wealth of original content, Netflix will be exploring part of this as the deal is set to focus on production from west and east Africa.
