Netflix has announced a new partnership with owner of Ebony Life TV, Mo Abudu, to bring two of Nigeria’s literary classics from book to screen.
The deal will see both partners bringing a series-adaptation of Lola Shoneyin’s “The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives” and a film-adaptation of Prof. Wole Soyinka’s “Death And The King’s Horseman”, to screen.
Netflix announced this on its Twitter handle @NetflixNaija on Friday morning.
In addition, Mo Abudu’s Ebony Life TV will also produce “two new Nigerian Originals plus licensed films AND a series for Netflix!”, the tweet read.
Mo Abudu first became popular in 2006 with her daytime talk show, Moments With Mo, but she has since then risen to become a brand in Nigerian entertainment.
She launched EbonyLife TV in 2012, the first fully Nigerian-owned entertainment channel to be carried on South African pay-TV platform DStv, and later ventured into feature film production, producing successful titles like The Wedding Party.
EbonyLife productions is credited with having the three highest-grossing Nigerian movies in the box office.
