Award-winning Nollywood actor and producer, Kunle Afolayan, is in high spirits as his movie, October 1, has banged a Netflix deal.

Netflix is one of the biggest video on-demand online streaming media companies in the world. They stream mostly to America and Europe.

Just last week, Kunle Afolayan won the award for Nollywood Man of the Year.

In an interview with The Nation, he said the movie would be sub-titled in 10 different languages and has been scheduled to be viewed in some film festivals.

“I am happy and delighted to announce that October 1 has gotten a deal with Netflix. Netflix covers the whole of Europe and America, that means the film will be exposed to the world.

“It is a distribution deal. Netflix is an SVOD platform, an online platform that you can watch on your television. Their application is everywhere. They are one of the most recognised SVOD platforms around the word.” He told The Nation.

The Nollywood thriller, October 1, stars actors like Sadiq Daba, Kanayo O Kanayo, Kehinde Bankole, Kayode Olaiya, and others. The budget for the movie was N330million.

Mr Afolayan has produced popular movies like Phone Swap, The Figurine, Dazzling Mirage, Irapada and many others.
