The highly anticipated film “Òlòtūré”; the second Netflix original from Nigeria produced by Mo’ Abudu’s Ebony Life Tv dropped in October.
This film did not fall short of fans expectations as Mo Abudu and her team delivered to the hilt. “Òlòtūré” is a viscerally depicted, unsettling thriller that tells the story of a young, naïve Nigerian journalist who goes undercover to expose the shady underworld of human trafficking. In her quest to uncover the truth, she pays the ultimate price one that takes her to the verge of no return.
Directed by Kenneth Gyang, the film stars Sharon Ooja as lead cast alongside, Omoni Oboli, Blossom Chukwujekwu, Omowunmi Dada. Kemi ‘Lala’ Akindoju, Wofai Fada, Bukola Oladipupo, Pearl Okorie, Ikechukwu Onanaku, David Jones David, Sambasa Nzeribe and Omawumi Megbele are also part of the cast.
Like every creative body of work, this film had its shortcomings starting from the title. Sharon Ooja’s real name being “Òlòtūré” was typical of a Nigerian storyline. It is very possible to have a title that is deep, leaving the lead actress to bear a totally different name.

Secondly, for a film that sheds light on human trafficking, Sharon the undercover prostitute was always afraid of getting intimate with men creating suspicion amongst the other women.
The use of language in “Òlòtūré” was top notch. It was beautiful to hear Omowunmi Dada speak impeccable Bini language. It must have taken months of steady practising to achieve such perfection. Also, the cast of Wofai Fada, Omawunmi Mgbele, Beverly Osu, and Lala Akindoju acting as prostitutes was 100% believable.
“Òlòtūré” is a beautiful film and on a scale of 1-10, I will rank it on a 7. This film is presently streaming on Netflix, kindly visit the site to watch if you haven’t.
