Elesin Oba now streaming on Netflix

Elesin Oba is many things – the first movie adaptation of the famous Death and the King’s Horseman, a stageplay by Prof. Wole Soyinka, and the last movie by Biyi Bandele before his tragic passing in August 2022, among others. In a year that’s been critically divisive for EbonyLife Studios, Elesin Oba comes to help break the tie. To discover which side of the scoreboard this movie falls on (Chief Daddy 2 vs. Blood Sisters), let’s see what fans are saying about it on Twitter.

Mayor Of Ekiti on Twitter: “how can you speak to a white man in your local dialect and he responses in English language ? ” Elesin Oba “Y’all need to explain that part , i probably miss something so don’t leave me in the dark / Twitter”

Rotr. Faoye Seeker #Foundational MC 🎤 on Twitter: “Ẹlẹ́ṣin Ọba is a good movie. I don’t think genuine history should be twisted to compel viewers, orelse, the main value and context is lost. The movie is not a fiction, it’s a true life story from a rich Yoruba culture. Ẹlẹsin Oba is more like “Abọbaku” we all know now. / Twitter”
