Since announcing its decision to invest in African content, Netflix has on a roll by constantly acquiring Nigerian movies.

The latest acquisition was revealed back in August 2019 by FilmOne, a major Nigerian distributor, via their Instagram page. 

According to the independent distributor, “The Wedding Party 2,” “ King Of Boys” and “Merry Men” will soon be available on Netflix.

Two of these movies have been added to the American streaming platform just in time for the weekend.

They are:

This 2017 Nigerian film is currently the highest-grossing Nigerian film of all time. It earned a total of N512 million.

Directed by Niyi Akinmolayan, the sequel to The Wedding Party follows characters as one of them accidentally proposes marriage by accident. Viewers will also see a disastrous traditional engagement ceremony and finally a wedding in Dubai.

Set in Abuja, it follows four rich men (the Merry Men) who seduce powerful women, steal from the rich, get contracts from the political elite and give to the poor.

With N230 million, it is the fifth highest-grossing Nigerian film.
