Nigerian internet sensation, Ikorodu Bois, have featured on a Netflix advert displayed on Broadway Times Square, New York City

The young lads join A-list celebrities like Burna Boy, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Davido, among others, to feature on a billboard in Times Square.

Situated in Midtown Manhattan section of New York City, the Times Square is a major tourist destination and entertainment center in the United States. In the advert, a clip of a trailer remake by Ikorodu Bois was included.

This is another remarkable feat for the group, which consists of the trio of Muiz Sanni (15), Malik Sanni (10) and Fawas (13).

The group is known for remaking, mimicking and recreating multimillion-dollar music videos, movie scenes and movie trailers using ordinary household items.

They rose to prominence on Instagram for their almost flawless ability to recreate movie trailers, music videos, viral videos of celebrities across the world which they share on their official page.

The Nation had reported Netflix announced plans to feature Ikorodu Bois in its Oscar Weekend Film Brand Campaign.

The company said in a statement that its campaign was targeted at celebrating fans for the important role they play, for watching, loving, discussing, and even recreating Netflix movies.

“In seeing the Ikorodu Bois channel their creativity into remakes/tributes of their favorite movies, we see the joy of being a fan,” the statement reads in part.

The Ikorodu Bois also recently bagged a nomination in the 2021 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, having made it to the list of nominees for the ‘Favourite African Social Media Star’ category, which was won by kid comedian, Emmanuella which The Nation also had reported.
