WhatsApp to premiere 1st original on Prime Video and YouTube: Full details here


Meta-owned instant messaging app WhatsApp is venturing into the film industry. Earlier this week, the company announced its first original short film, “Naija Odyssey,” which tells the true story of NBA superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was born in Athens, Greece to Nigerian parents.

According to Techcrunch, “Naija Odyssey” is a short film rather than a full-length feature film. A 12-minute running time is claimed. The short film “Naija Odyssey” represents WhatsApp’s foray into the entertainment industry, an unusual move for the social messaging app. “Naija Odyssey” seems to be a way to promote the brand, unlike Apple’s original content. This is because Antetokounmpo just signed a deal with WhatsApp, which is another first for the messaging app.

According to a recent Variety report, this film is a piece of branded content that capitalises on Antetokounmpo’s worldwide fame. In 2021, he was named MVP of the NBA All-Star Game for the Milwaukee Bucks. According to the report, WhatsApp is attempting to bring people from all over the world together.
