Kunle Afolayan’s ‘Anikulapo’ has emerged as the most-watched movie on Netflix in Nigeria in 2022.

According to streaming data provider, the 2022 Nigerian epic fantasy film took first place, beating out major worldwide releases like “RRR” and “Adam Project”.

This is a significant achievement for the Nigerian movie given that other films were released in March while the Nigerian film was released later in the year.
