You can follow these Instagram accounts if you’re a movie lover searching for something to watch when you’re indoors during this period.
From only just being the second biggest movie industry in the world in terms of production volume, to going from raking in $45million in 2002 to grossing $400million in 2014, and pulling multi-million dollar foreign investments, the growth of Nollywood has been like that of a child showing signs of development in different bodily areas.
But even with the pattern of diversity of progression, some natives still do not rate the industry, nor do they rate its products. A Nigerian lady who I met during a work project some months back said to me, “You people that watch Nigerian films are trying. I can’t sit down and watch them.” “It is blockbuster Hollywood or nothing, for me.” imagine that.
Instead of giving you a list of movies to watch that you’d probably exhaust within a day or two, we figure we’d give you a list of Instagram pages that offer a vast array of the most riveting movies to choose from.
So, we are serving you five Nigerians here-why not Nigerian, right? — If you’re avid movie lover looking for something to keep you on the edge of your seat during this shutdown, you can follow these Instagram accounts.
