Afamefuna, An Nwa Boi Story, a film that beautifully portrays the hard work, resilience, and legacies of the Igbo people, is the first feature-length movie on the Igbo apprenticeship system. It was released on Netflix on Friday, March 29, 2024.


According to reports the movie showcases the unwavering determination of Igbo people, and it hunts through the theme of brotherhood and the timeless quest for a lasting legacy that echoes through every Igbo family tradition.

Afamefuna's significance: The Nwa Boi Story film is the awakening of a community’s economy by permitting successful Igbo men to pass on their knowledge and blessings to apprentices, preserving the cycle of wealth creation.


The film, directed by Kayode Kasum, a Nigerian movie director and producer, features an extraordinary cast that includes Stan Nze, Kanayo O. Kanayo, Segun Arinze, Atlanta Bridget Johnson, and Alexx Ekubo, with Jide Kene Achufusi and Noble Igwe coming into view. Omobayowa Alabi produced the film, which was executive-produced by Lawumi Fajemirokun and Kenechukwu Egbue.

Doubtlessly, the movie stands as evidence of the rich cultural embroidery of the Igbo community, woven into the intriguing plots of entrepreneurship and the quest for economic rebirth through a lens of love, betrayal, and vindication.


Afamefuna recounts the narrative of the striking difference between the lavish memorial to Afamefuna’s father and the chilling discovery of Paul’s demise. 

Inspector Shehau’s ensuing inquiries into Paul’s death through Afamefuna’s recounting set a captivating tone. 

The film hunts through Afamefuna’s progression from a learner under Odogwu’s mentorship to a victorious businessman, laying bare the Igbo apprenticeship system’s depth of sacrifice and comradeship amidst betrayal.

Afamefuna, a 2-hour and eight-minute movie, is a visual feast, set apart by its rich colour palette and ultra-careful cinematography. The sound effect, rich with Igbo language and proverbs, adds a very great layer of originality and cultural pride to the film.
