Fans and colleagues of Actor Femi Adebayo are excited as his movie King of Thieve got international recognition.
The movie is one of the few Nigerian films being considered to make the Oscars list in the next edition of the awards.
A letter by the Academy dated October 14 addressed to the NOSC chairperson Chineze Anayene-Abonyi and vice-chairman Mahmood Ali-Balogun granted the one-week extension which expires on October 21.
Femi Adebayo’s King of Thieves, Biyi Bandele’s Eleshin Oba: The King’s Horseman and Kunle Afolayan’s Anikulapo made it to the final for selection for the 2023 Oscars.
The NOSC, however, announced in September that no film will be submitted for the Oscars after five of its 15 members voted for Elesin Oba and one member each for Anikulapo and King of Thieves.
