While Ojo is yet to confirm his latest role, the British/Nigerian star has enjoyed a relatively great year with notable titles including Netflix first original series Blood Sisters and Umanu Ojochenemi Elijah’s pollution-themed A Place Called Forward. The latest Nemsia films project will debut in 2023.
The streamer has made major moves over the past weeks as it continues to establish itself in the Nigerian market.
On Wednesday, Ned Mitchell, Head of Originals, Africa & Middle East, Amazon Studios, confirmed the streamer’s latest Nigerian hire Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu. The acclaimed content strategist was unveiled as Prime Video’s new Head of Nigerian Originals.
Prime Video’s Nemsia partnership deal, on the other hand, will see the company produce three Amazon Prime Original films.
