Genevieve Nnaji’s “Lionheart” premiered on Netflix recently and she has been well praised by those who have seen it for putting a good work out there.
Netflix acquired the global rights of Nnaji’s directorial debut film prior to its Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), making it the Nigerian movie they ever acquired.
Lionheart follows the story of an enterprising daughter (played by Nnaji) who competes with her crude and eccentric uncle to control her family business after her father falls ill.
Here are some reviews;
