In a much-anticipated announcement, The Origin: Madam Koi Koi will make its debut on Netflix on October 31, 2023. The film is a Nigerian horror/thriller that is set to plunge viewers into the roots of a popular, hair-raising Nigerian myth, making it the perfect Halloween treat.
Traveling back to the year 1900, The Origin: Madam Koi Koi offers a gripping retell of a narrative that harks back to the beginnings of what we now know as the classic boarding school tale. This historical context adds a layer of authenticity to the eerie narrative. The subject matter of the plot revolves around the legendary spirit of Madam Koi Koi, a terrifying presence that returns decades after with a thirst for vengeance.
Jay Franklyn Jituboh, the creator and director, gathered a remarkable ensemble to bring this tale to life. Ireti Doyle steps into the shoes of the school administrator, while Chioma Akpotha takes on the role of a Catholic nun. The cast also includes Chukwuka Jude, Martha Ehinome, Nene Aliemeke, Tolulope Odebunmi, Omowunmi Dada, Ejiro Onojaife, Chuks Joseph, Kevin T. Solomon, Temidayo Akinboro, Iremide Adeoye, and Racheal Emem Issac.
For most Nigerians, the mention of Madam Koi Koi brings a rush of nostalgia and a flood of memories from their school days. The tale is part of a collective experience — it’s a shared piece of cultural folklore and that’s precisely what will make Origin: Madam Koi Koi an even special watch.
