It started as a personal hobby, then grew to a group archive, and then achieved an enormous popularity that turned it into a fan favorite, finally, it is sad for us to say goodbye to movies on Netnaija. It was quite a ride while it lasted. It breaks our hearts to break the hearts of our esteemed visitors by this action. We have always pushed it back but unfortunately, this time, we will be going ahead. To everyone who contributed to the growth in any way, be it visiting, requesting, recommending, or any other means, we thank you and highly appreciate you. To our legion of soldiers who represent us around social media and fight our battles, we thank you specially. We hope we will continue to have you as we now focus on other sections of our services. Thank you and God bless you – #Netnaija
