Critically acclaimed queen of film & theatre productions in Nigeria, Bolanle Austen Peters (BAP) recently took to her Instagram page to reveal she’s getting her very own Netflix Original titled ‘Man of God’.
The upcoming movie follows Samuel Obalolu, the first son of a strict disciplinarian pastor, who finally “liberates himself” from his oppressed upbringing as “the preacher’s son”. After a few failed relationships and heartbreaks, Samuel, ironically, finds himself behind the pulpit with a wife he doesn’t love, a deep resentment born of the abuse of his upbringing, and the skeletons of his past relationships threatening to upstage his success and ruin his life.
Judging by the synopsis, it looks like fans of quality Nollywood entertainment are in for a great treat.
Bolanle Austen Peters is well known and revered for some of the finest works to grace the big screen and theatre stage in the country in the last decade. Her most notable works in movies include 93 Days (2016), Bling Lagosians (2019), and Collision Course (2021). On stage, Saro The Musical, Wakaa The Musical, Moremi The Musical, Fela and the Kalakuta Queens, The Oluronbi Musical, and, most recently, Death and The King’s Horseman take the icing on the cake.
