Nollywood actress and film maker, Genevieve Nnaji has expressed gratitude to fans for watching her movie, 'LionHeart.'

Genevieve's directorial debut after 20 years in Nollywood, 'Lionheart' became the first Netflix Original from Nigeria just 24 hours to its premiere at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival.

On her Instagram page on Tuesday, January 8, 2018, Genevieve wrote, 'Thank you, everyone, for accepting #lionheartthemovie into your homes and your hearts. Worldwide. This is how we change the narrative. Together. Let us continue to bridge the gap.'

Lionheart follows Adaeze (played by Nnaji), a competent yet perennially overlooked daughter, who is forced to work alongside her feckless uncle, Goodwill (Nkem Owoh), in order to save her father’s (Pete Edochie) ailing bus company, Lionheart.

 ‘Lionheart’ premiered on Netflix from January 4
