If all you know of Nollywood is AfricaMagic and AfricaMagic Yoruba, you are missing out on the best of Nigerian movies. You should have a look at the Nollywood movies on Netflix.
Nollywood is the 3rd largest movie industry in the world. While it has taken a lot of flak over the years for churning out half-baked movies, it is beginning to produce solid movies with global appeal. And some of those movies have made it to Netflix.
Yes; you will find Nollywood titles on Netflix. Some of them include: The Duplex, a horror flick; The Arbitration; The Department; and Fifty, among others.
Dayo is an avowed hater of Nollywood movies. Yesterday, he stumbled on The Arbitration and has repented of his sinful ways. He had been gushing about how good the movie is. I have seen quite a few too and thoroughly enjoyed them. There was one that went south quite a bit, but we can forgive that.
What is cause for celebration is that Nollywood has finally come of age in recent years with movies that have very solid plots and are of good production quality.
My own experience with Nollywood movies on iROKOtv has been good too. In a number of cases, the movie plots and executions have been mind-blowing.

Kudos to the writers, producers, musicians, actors and others who are behind this new crop of movies. It is great to see Nollywood titles taking their place among the best that the world has to offer.
