By  | 


Global streaming giant Netflix has donated filming kits to popular mimickers “Ikorodu Bois”. The donation which took place yesterday came after they earned an invite to the world premiere of Netflix action thriller, Extraction 2.

Veteran Actor, Kunle Afoloyan was on hand to present the filming kit to the boys while also offering then scholarship in his film school.

Ikorodu Bois, a Nigerian online comedy group made up of some Nigerian boys, has become social media sensations by remaking, mimicking and recreating multimillion-dollar music videos, movie scenes and movie trailers using ordinary household items.

They have done some shot-for-shot reenactments of Bad Boys for Life, Spanish drama series, Money Heist, a tribute to Kobe Bryant and other pieces of entertainment. Their recent break into limelight came when they recreated the trailer for Extraction, an action-packed Netflix movie, starring actor Chris Hemsworth.

In a manner that is beyond human comprehension, Ikorodu Bois have earned an invite to the world premiere of Netflix action thriller, Extraction 2 after making a remake of the first trailer. Through a string of tweets and retweets on Twitter and Instagram posts, they eventually got an invite from Russo Brothers, one of the world’s most popular film directors in Hollywood, and Hemsworth.

From Ikorodu to Hollywood, the story of these kids carries a deep message for anyone that wants a major breakthrough in life.

Ikorodu Bois is made up of two brothers- Muiz Sanni, 15, Malik Sanni, 10- and their 13-year-old cousin, Fawas Aina. Muiz and Malik’s big brother, 23-year-old Babatunde Sanni is the one responsible for editing the videos and managing the trio. He is the brain behind turning something that started as a bit of fun in 2017 into what the boys hope would be careers in the entertainment industry.

The real world does not reward perfectionism; it only rewards our efforts. Instead of complaining and trying to wait for perfect conditions, ask yourself what you can do with what you have at the moment; stop whining and start winning.
