Kayode Kasum's award-winning feature film 'Oga Bolaji' has been confirmed for a global Netflix release three years after it premiered to critical acclaim.

According to Kasum, the film debuts on the streaming platform on November 3, 2021.

"If you told us 3 years ago that this film would be on Netflix Worldwide. We would have laughed because at the time there was no way it could have happened. Please don't give up. You are not the first person they would laugh at, keep going, failure is natural . There is no reason to be ashamed of trying. You can do it," Kasum wrote on Instagram.
