Nnaji wrote: “Thank you, everyone, for accepting @lionheartthemovie into your homes and your hearts. Worldwide. This is how we change the narrative. Together.
Let us continue to bridge the gap.”
Meanwhile, in December 2018, the movie was halted due to alleged industry controversies, a development which the actress expressed great disappointment.
Nnaji’s team had announced last year that the cinema screening of the movie was to commence December 21 although the movie was purchased by Netflix in July.
However, sequel to the announcement a viral statement from the ‘Lion Heart’s team alleged that the “powers that be” (distribution companies) have refused to show the movie in their cinemas.
The statement further alleged that one of the major distributors, who had agreed to show the movie, backed out of the deal after being “arm-twisted”.
