Ikorodu Bois are made up of Muiz, 15, and Malik, 10, and their cousin, Fawas Aina, 13 from Lagos, Nigeria who remake their favourite movie trailers in their free time. Their style is both charming and inimitable – employing a mix of ingenious DIY and childlike whimsy to recreate mega-budget films on a shoestring.
With over 1 million followers on Instagram, the Ikorodu Bois were nominated for their first Nickelodeon Kiddies Choice Awards 2021. This did not go unnoticed by Netflix, catching their attention when they remade the trailer for Extraction in June 2020.
The Bois personify a new generation of global film fans, awakened by new ways of enjoying stories and perspectives from all over the world. Great stories can come from anywhere – including from these ultimate fans – and be loved everywhere.
Fans make the movies.
