3 Nollywood recommendations for this weekend

From streaming platforms to the cinemas there is something for everyone this week.
After a long week’s work, everyone definitely deserves a break to unwind and refuel.
So, here are three titles for your delight:

First on the list is Netflix’s newly acquired series Ololade, which makes its debut, November 24, 2023, after several weeks of anticipation.

The writing, led by Lani Aisida, tells the story of two friends, one named Shina (Frank Donga), an unhappy high school teacher, and the other Lateef (Femi Adebayo-Salami), a loud, dishonest, auto-mechanic.

They mysteriously become wealthy after going through various challenges, and now they have a new business, which takes tremendous flight in a short while. But must come face-to-face with the negative consequences that befall them.

Directed by Adeniyi Joseph-Omobulejo, the cast includes Mercy Aigbe, Mide Martins, Liz Da-Silva, Jaiye Kuti, Damilola Oni, Frank Donga, Mr. Macaroni, Oluwatobi Olubiyi, Debby Felix, and Ayanwale Olanrewaju.

If you’re interested in some suspense, laughter, and little bits of chaos, then you don’t want to miss Ololade on Netflix this weekend.


Written by Kayode Kasum and Dare Olaitan, Egun takes us into the lives of a particular corporate office that receives an unexpected package containing juju. They instantly receive a call that informs them that all who have seen the contents of the box are bound to die.
