February 2017 Nollywood movies coming to cinemas

January was light on the number of Nollywood films that were released in cinemas, but February hopes to fix that problem with a number of new releases.

King Invincible and Saving Dreams were the two movies that kicked off what is going to look like an eventful 2017 for Nollywood.

Valentine’s Day is one of the most important days of February for a lot of people, while others simple go about that day like any other day (team singles camp). Either way,  there will be movies for both camps.

Check out these six movies you don’t want to miss this February.
