‘The Delivery Boy’, Boko Haram-inspired Film, Now On Netflix
‘The Delivery Boy’, a Boko Haram-inspired film by Adekunle ‘Nodash’ Adejuyigbe, award-winning movie maker, has premiered on Netflix.
The movie, which had raked in 12 nominations at the 2019 Africa Movie Academy Award (AMAA), debuted on the streaming platform on Thursday.
Adejuyigbe took to his Instagram page to break the good news with his numerous followers and movie lovers.
“Now streaming on NETFLIX. “The Delivery Boy”. We carefully crafted this film for people like you- Really …YOU. (You’ll understand when you see it),” he wrote in one of his posts.
“Don’t just watch it. Share you opinion about the topics addressed in the film. You just might say something that the world needs to hear. We are listening.”
The movie is an entertaining take on the Boko Haram insurgency with a plot that explored the back story of terrorists seeking to provide answers to the reasons behind their actions.
It tells the story of a runaway teenage suicide bomber (Jammal Ibrahim) and a young prostitute (Jemima Osunde), his newfound ally, who must rely on each other to survive the night.
Last year, ‘The Delivery Boy’ snagged the ‘Beat Achievement in Visual Effects’ award at the 2019 AMAA while also representing Nigeria at the 2020 Pan-African Film Festival (PAFF).
The movie also screened at Jagran International Film Festival, Lake International Pan African Film Festival, and Real-Time International Film Festival — winning the ‘Best Nigerian Film’ category at the 2018 AFRIFF Globe Awards.
