Ebonylife Film’s The Royal Hibiscus Hotel is coming to Netflix!!
The 2017 romantic comedy directed by Ishayo Bako is one of the studio’s tentpoles which premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival as the only full feature Nigerian film.
The film tells the story of aspiring restaurateur (Zainab Balogun) returns to her home in Lagos to try and refine the fare at her family’s little hotel, only to find that her parents are planning on selling out to a rich (and devilishly attractive) buyer (Kenneth Okolie).
The movie which was directed by Ishaya Bako stars Rachel Oniga, Joke Silva, OC Ukeje, Charles Inojie, Deyemi Okanlawon, Lala Akindoju, Akah Nnani and Ini Dima Okojie.
CEO EbonyLife and executive producer made the announcement recently on Instagram. Netflix is ever more determined to increase the Nollywood titles in its catalogue – Niyi Akinmolayan’s The Set Up just arrived the streamer yesterday and as the coronavirus pandemic continues to force lockdowns and social distance, we can expect more content to hit Netflix.
