Rogers Ofime Celebrates As Oloibiri Readies For Netflix Debut

Nigerian filmmaker, Rogers Ofime is in a celebratory mood as his critically acclaimed film, Olo ibiri prepares to start screening on streaming platform, Netflix.

In a Facebook post, Ofime goes down memory lane, recalling how his outfit set out looking for the right script that will speak in passionate volumes, educate and sensitise people on the plight of Oloibiri, the first community where oil was discovered in commercial quantity in Nigeria.

“We got poetry, masterfully crafted (yes, CRAFTED) by Dr Samantha Iwowo. Witty, passionate, nostalgic and packed with action. It needed to be told and told well no holds barred.

“My utmost respect goes to Uncle Olu Jacobs, Aunty Taiwo Ajayi Lycett, Bill Moses, Ivie Okujaiye, Ifeanyi Williams and to our biggest scoop for the movie, RMD, though a serving Hon commissioner, he made Oloibiri his own and his come back to the Nigerian entertainment scene. They gave life to poetry and pulled at our heartstrings with such powerful acting that at some point we wondered if this was more than just a film,” he wrote.

Directed by Curtis Graham, Oloibiri is a 2016 Nigerian action thriller film produced by Rogers Ofime. The film tells the story of how government agencies, along with oil companies exploited the newly discovered oil in the historic town of Oloibiri. It had its premiere on 21 October 2016 at the Shell Nigeria Hall, Muson Centre, Onikan.

Oloibiri is set to start showing on Netflix from Wednesday, April 21.
