Well done. Kudos to @HEAVEN4444 and @ZooOga as well for the Sugar Hill mention. That’s was one of the first times I particularly witnessed anything Nigerian-related in a Hollywood movie.

Miami Vice of the 80’s did however had an episode about drugs from Nigeria.

“President Buhari” was literally predicted to be in a season of 24 that I can’t remember.

One stupid movie used our coat of arms in a letterhead for something utterly unrelated to Nigeria.

I think it is Children of Men, a movie featuring Chiwetel Ejiofor and Clive Owens amongst other had a wailing song
In Igbo.

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje in prison series Oz in a scene where he was about to fight I think), said “Oya”.

If I remember anymore I’ll update this post.

Stop smoking too much weeds una no go hear, see am now. grin grin

ElRapido:
The big problem is that Buhari is clueless about how to move Nigeria forward and now the fans are protesting at Old Trafford. It will be interesting to see how everything plays out in the coming days. But in my opinion, I think we need to tax the rich more, increase the minimum wage and Hitler should face the law as soon as possible.

Not only these, the tv series "Bob Hearts Abishola" speaks extensively about Nigeria and her culture in a good way.

"The Brave" also had an episode about Nigeria

Also "The Equalizer"(tv series) has an episode in which the titular character pretended she was a Nigerian businesswoman so as to infiltrate a party.

Both "six" and "seal team" had one or two episodes about Nigeria and in "Lucky Day"(movie) in an airport scene, there were Nigerian immigrants speaking Yoruba

Should be titled “Hollywood movies that spoke about Boko Haram”, not about Nigeria....

All this attack on Desmond Elliot, do you know that as a state law maker, he is not financially and constitutionally empowered to carry out any project.
