I watch ‘Lucifer’ religiously, love the hell out of that show. I’m surprised it has taken Africans this long to tag it as a satanic show aimed to win souls for the devil.

Ghanaian uprising Hollywood actor Abraham Attah has made it clear that he will not star in any Ghanaian movie which will not be found on Netflix. During an interview with Abeiku Santana on UTV’s Popular “Atuu” show, the young actor was asked if he will feature in our local Ghanaian movies (Ghallywood & Kumawood), and in answer to this question, the “Beast of No Nation” actor said he will not hesitate to star in such movies but if only that particular movie will be available on Netflix.
Since Netflix expanded worldwide early last year, Ghanaians have had access to some excellent original content and a range of TV series and movies. However, Netflix ran into a problem. Many series and movies have already been syndicated to local TV here, and they don’t have the rights to broadcast this content. Of course, there are ways to get around this, and access the full catalogue of shows available in the US and elsewhere. Here is how to change Netflix to American catalogue. Use a VPN A virtual private network (VPN) is basically software that routes your internet connection through a foreign server. Many people use it for security purposes – it blocks hackers and any other surveillance from tracking your online activity. After all, if they don’t know where you are, they can’t identify who you are. While proxies do the same, VPNs are more popular since they encrypt your data, adding an extra layer of protection from identity theft. Since this software routes your connection through a server that can be outside of the country – in America, for example – it can trick Netflix into thinking that you’re in the US, and you’ll get access to the full catalogue. Not long after Netflix expanded, however, they took measures to stop this.
Netflix, the global on-demand Internet streaming media platform has officially opened for business in Ghana and several African countries—making it possible for Africans who have been missing out on the Netflix fun to now join in. After a successful launch in Asia in September, 2015, taking hold of Japan’s strong internet infrastructure; the American streaming company thinks Africa is its next big market. In terms of population, Africa is huge but with its under-developed and astronomically expensive internet infrastructure, it surely seems like Netflix is in for a rough ride—or subscribers would have to pay through their teeth to be able to reliably stream even a single movie. For instance, it is unbelievably expensive to stream a common Youtube video in Ghana—provided you have the patience to endure the slow internet connection and the many cuts. Therefore, it seems only the few affluent Ghanaians will be joining the ‘Netflix and chill’ party.
