Anikulapo, a recent film by renowned director Kunle Afolayan, has received appreciation from many viewers and peaked at number one on the global Netflix ranking for non-English Netflix originals a week after its debut. On September 30, 2022, the film had its debut.
Afolayan used social media on October 12, 2022, to give her thoughts on the film as it topped international weekly top 10 rankings of the most-watched TV shows and foreign films. 8,730,000 hours’ worth of viewings of the film were cumulatively streamed. India’s “Laal Singh Chaddha,” which had received 6,630,000 hours of total viewing time, came in second.
Afolayan wrote, “Netflix original, produced and directed by Kunle Afolayan, has been the talk of the town and it is currently topping the Netflix global chart as the most viewed non-English Netflix original with 8,730,000 views in less than a week.
“While this is being celebrated by Nigerians home and abroad, the acceptability of it from people around the world with different cultural backgrounds and beliefs proves beyond words that ‘Anikulapo’ tells a universal story that every human across the world can relate to.”
