With just a week to go until Hollywood’s biggest night, the ARISEPlay team is making a connection between Oscar nominated films and Nigerian ones in an exciting trivia challenge.

In six steps, ARISEPlay shows how the Oscar nominated films that feature black talent, such as ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’, are linked to a Nollywood actor or film in the trivia called 6 Degrees of Separation.

Links are drawn between ‘Once Upon A Time in Miami’, which has three Oscar nominations, and the Nollywood film, ’93 Days’.

‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’, with five nominations is compared with Nigerian blockbuster ‘The Wedding Party’, and ‘Nomadland’ with six nods, is compared with ‘Falz Experience: The Movie.’

Exciting connections are also made between ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’ and ‘Merry Men’, ‘Minari’ and ‘King of Boys’, and Chadwick Boseman, who has been posthumously nominated for the best actor award, and Banana Island Ghost.
