Prime Video’s first African original movie, Gangs of Lagos, will launch on the streaming platform on April 7th.

Gangs of Lagos is a high-stakes, hard-hitting action crime-thriller, with an authentic storyline centred on a group of childhood friends who each have to navigate destiny, growing up on the bustling streets and neighbourhood of Isale Eko, Lagos.

The movie is written and directed by Jade Osiberu, and stars Tobi Bakre, Adesuwa Etomi-Wellington, Chike Osebuka, Zlatan, Chioma Chukwuka and Iyabo Ojo.

Gangs of Lagos builds on Prime Video’s commitment to deliver local and authentic African films and series to a global audience, including an exclusive overall deal with the director and producer of the movie, Jáde Osiberu and her production company Greoh Studios, who recently brought Prime Video customers the top-performing, crime-thriller, Brotherhood.
