Mo Abudu has announced that the much talked about Blood sisters limited series which was released on Netflix on May 5, has now become the most viewed Nigerian movie on the platform; a position that was previously held by Kemi Adetiba’s King of Boys series.

Read her press release below:

“Good morning beautiful people

The last few days have been surreal – I’m not sure how else to describe it.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all so much for watching Blood Sisters.

Thanks for your calls, messages and comments on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and email. To all my friends and family who have gone above and beyond to show me, love, I appreciate and love you all

We know we have reached a new milestone in so many countries around the world!!! We hit the Netflix Top Ten charts in over 20 countries, including Nigeria, USA, UK, Canada, France, Belgium, Kenya, South Africa, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, UAE and others! We trended on Twitter like never before and the conversation about the show has been non-stop.

It’s been a compulsive, 4-episode binge for so many people, watching again and again! 😁😁😁

The entire team worked so hard to bring Blood Sisters to life and we are over the moon that you love what we created.

We have never experienced this level of patronage and acceptance for any of our shows. This feels like a new beginning – a new bar has been set for the work we do at EbonyLife Studios and EbonyLife Films.

To our partners, NETFLIX, thank you so much for believing in us and taking this journey with us on the production of Nigeria’s First Original Series.

The major takeaway from what I have witnessed this weekend is that the world is ready to embrace our stories. We can do this as Nigerians! 🇳🇬

To the Blood Sisters team, we move with LOVE”

Kemi Filani recalls that since its release, Blood sisters has been garnering positive reviews even from critics all over Nigeria and the world at last.

    How is this Nigeria’s first Netlfix Original Series? She or whoever wrote that needs to correct that impression before it goes viral. Doesn’t she pay attention to news and trends? Where was she last year?

    And please no one should compare this “Blood Sisters” with King of Boys.

    King of Boys is a whole movement. A lifestyle. A legend.

    This “Blood Sisters’ just managed to escape Ebony Life’s retarded movie making concept. Still was not an 8/10.No originality. The Igbo speaking was flawed, costume was superfluous.

    Like a commentatar said, the only Blood Sisters I know are Genevieve and Omotola.

      This producer is always trying to re-write history & create unnecessary controversies should be ignored. KOB is the first original Netflix series. As for being tops in 30 countries? They have lost market share in the US market as many streaming platforms are better priced, offer a better program mix at a better price point edging them out so they are turning to Africa where we embrace all things foreign. KOB is in its own league and I see them now copying the strong female lead concept with similar costume design for the strong female lead! Many scenes were redundant and overdramatized. Not a bad film but I do not compare. KOB parts 1 & 2 is unique in the storytelling. That’s how the same producer carried a village to Dubai to film mediocre Chief Daddy 2 which was a huge disappointment. Telling “an African story” from the opulence of Dubai is self deception.

    There is no comparison. Different storyline and concept. Let’s not bring issues where there’s none..King of Boys stands tall on its own
