Del-York have signed an agreement withthe Lagos, Nigeria state government formalising Kebulania. Construction is set to begin during the first quarter of 2023 and extend over a two-year period.

Next to India’s Bollywood, Nollywood is the second largest movie industry in the world. Nollywood has an annual gross revenue of over $1 billion and an output of roughly 2,500 films per year. Once completed, Kebulania is estimated to attract both Western clients and 5,000 to 10,000 daily visitors. The studio city will be positioned to generate significant revenue and economic activity for Lagos, both in terms of tourism and the local economy.


Storyland Studios have partnered with Del-York International Group to design and master plan Kebulania, the first studio city on the African continent that’s set to revolutionise the rapidly growing Nigerian film industry, or “Nollywood.” The partnership aims to create a true film studio that will become a premier destination for filmmaking and creativity throughout all of Africa.


Kebulania is planned as a fully-resourced entertainment industry campus and film lot in the vein of Universal Studios Hollywood™. Filmmakers, actors, writers, musicians, marketing professionals, and other industry personnel can live and work on the lot, bringing their creative ideas to life in the process.

Envisioned as both an industry hub and tourist destination, Kebulania will house fully equipped, state-of-the-art sound stages, workshops, a film and creative arts academy, a museum commemorating the history of Nollywood, residential housing, retail, dining, entertainment, a resort hotel, commercial real estate, and a backlot theme park. The combination of real backlots, accessible by tram, and amusement park-style rides will give everyday visitors an opportunity to see real movie-making locations that are regularly in use.
