Mo Abudu’s ‘Baby Farm’ Leads Netflix Africa’s Female-Led Slate for International Women’s Month

In a celebration of creativity and empowerment, Netflix Africa has revealed a captivating lineup of female-led projects, perfectly timed for International Women’s Month. Led by prominent figures in the industry, these diverse narratives promise to captivate audiences across the continent and beyond.

Headlining the slate is Baby Farm, an enthralling series executive produced by Mo Abudu, the visionary CEO of EbonyLife TV. Following the gripping tale of Adanna, a young woman ensnared in a sinister baby farm, this production boasts a stellar cast including the talented Rita Dominic and Joseph Benjamin.

Hamisha Daryani Ahuja takes the helm with Postcards, a poignant journey of self-discovery following the lives of four Nigerians in India. Their quest for identity promises to resonate deeply with viewers, offering a unique perspective on cultural exploration.

Meanwhile, House of Ga’a, helmed by Bolanle Austen-Peters, transports audiences back to the 18th-century Oyo Empire. Based on true events, this period feature promises intrigue and drama as it unravels the story of Bashorun Ga’a, a formidable prime minister and kingmaker.

The announcement of these projects comes amidst a dynamic landscape in Africa’s streaming sector. As Netflix continues to assert its presence, the industry witnesses a spirited competition with local streamer Showmax, currently under the spotlight with a hefty takeover offer from France’s Canal+.

Emphasizing their commitment to diverse storytelling, Dorothy Ghettuba, Netflix’s Director of Content in Africa, underscores the importance of amplifying voices that reflect the rich tapestry of African experiences. Together with luminaries from the Nigerian film community, Ghettuba champions the power of collaboration in shaping cultural narratives.

With a nod to empowerment and creativity, Netflix Africa’s female-led slate promises an exhilarating ride for audiences, reaffirming the platform’s dedication to celebrating the myriad voices of women in storytelling.
