Funke Akindele’s Omo Ghetto, Castle & Castle & More On Netflix Naija This September

an exciting roster

Currently, there has never been a time quite like the present for Nigerian cinema. While we continue to celebrate groundbreaking blockbuster ratings for films such as ‘Omo Ghetto’ and ‘Living In Bondage’ which have soared in the past year, our attention is also being drawn to streaming giant, Netflix which has in the past year stoked up on Nollywood content that rivals its competitors.

Recently, Netflix just released the first-ever Nigerian original series, Kemi Adetiba’s ‘King of Boys: The Return of the King’, a 7-part series that portrayed the dark behind-the-scenes machinations of politics in Nigeria. The new series now joins other titles including South Africa’s ‘Blood & Water’ and ‘Queen Sono’ as the only Netflix original series in these parts.

While many of us continue to binge ‘King of Boys: The Returns of the King’ in the coming weeks, a new month is upon us, and as such, new titles are currently on their way to the streaming platform. From Funke Akindele’s high-grossing film ‘Omo Ghetto’ to the second season of ‘Castle & Castle’, here are the new titles we’re expecting from Netflix Naija this month. Enjoy.



This Nigerian gangster comedy is a sequel to the 2010 trilogy ‘Omo Ghetto’, about Shalewa aka Lefty (Funke Akindele) who struggles with the choice of living a life of wealth or returning to her former ghetto lifestyle. The movie features other popular Nollywood faces including Eniola Badmus, Chioma Akpotha, and more.

Castle & Castle


Our favourite legal drama is back with a new and exciting season. Set against the backdrop of a top law firm in Lagos, Nigeria, the series follows the life of a legal team headed by a married duo Remi (Dakore Egbuson-Akande) and Tega (Richard Mofe-Damijo). The second season will pick up where the first left off, starting off six months after the legal battle between Remi and Tega. In the wake of the victory, Castle & Castle’s prestige has surged and the company has moved to a new office and is flush with new clients. But it’s a hollow victory for Remi, who finds herself alone at the helm. Tega has been suspended for some months from practicing law. He is back at university and teaching.

Sex Education


This might not be an African series but it’s definitely become a fan favourite in these parts. Renewing for season 3 this year, ‘Sex Education’ picks off where it left off with word of the nickname “sex school” reaching the new headteacher who tries to control a rambunctious student body.

Shadow Parties


Starring Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Sola Sobowale amongst other profound actors, ‘Shadow Parties’ is a story about an army officer whose unfortunate upbringing has resulted in many deaths and war between two communities, making room for more destruction within a family.
