Nollywood filmmaker, Jade Osiberu has inked a deal with Prime Video.
In her three-year deal, Jade will develop new projects for original TV and movies that will be made by her production company, Greoh Studios.
The deal comes shortly after “Gangs of Lagos” had its exclusive preview screening at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival for press and tastemakers. Chiké, Tobi Bakre, and Adesua Etomi-Wellington play three friends, Obalola, Gift, and Panama, who grow up in the busy streets and neighbourhood of Isale Eko, Lagos, and have to deal with their fate. The film will be launched as the first Nigerian Original exclusively on Prime Video later this year.
“I am overjoyed with this collaboration and already feel like I’m part of the Prime Video and Amazon Studios family,” said Jáde Osiberu. “It will be an absolute pleasure to introduce Prime Video audiences to the most exciting talent and storylines Nigeria has to offer, and I’m looking forward to continuing to help elevate Nigerian stories on a global scale.”
