Editi Effiong’s film “The Black Book” has made history by becoming the first Nollywood movie to reach number one on Netflix worldwide.
This is a significant achievement for Nollywood, which has struggled to secure funding for ambitious projects.
The film’s story is about Paul Edima, played by Nollywood star Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD), and his quest for justice. “The Black Book” explores themes of redemption and the past, making it a must-see for fans of gripping stories.
Effiong’s skill as a director is evident, as he uses Hollywood-style techniques in the film. The impressive cinematography and camera work usually seen in Hollywood movies are now part of this groundbreaking Nollywood film.

This achievement marks a turning point for Nollywood, proving that its stories can connect with audiences worldwide, breaking geographical boundaries.
