Nigeria’s first feature-length animated movie, Ladybuckit & the Motley Mopsters, is now streaming on Netflix!
Lady Buckit & The Motley Mopsters (LBMM) is Nigeria’s multiple award-winning 3D Animated/Edutainment cartoon that tells the tale of the discovery of oil in Bayelsa State.
The story follows a precocious, self-absorbed 8-year-old girl Bukky, who finds herself in wildly unfamiliar territory in pre-colonial Oloibiri, the South-South Nigeria town where crude oil was first discovered in commercial quantities in the 1950s. There, she encounters a band of highly unusual characters who change the course of her destiny.
The film stars Bimbo Akintola, Patrick Doyle, Bola Edwards, and Kalu Ikeagwu in the lead roles.
The Chris Ihidero produced animated film first premiered in cinemas in December 2020 and is now finally available to a worldwide audience on Netflix.
