        Comic drama flick produced and written by Bovi Ugboma and executive produced by Accelerate TV has announced that it will return for its third season. Initially released on the 30th of June, 2021, Visa on Arrival centres on the struggle and frustration Nigerians encounter during visa processing.

Directed by Yemi ‘Filmboy’ Morafa with Victor Edem taking the lead as director of photography, Visa on Arrival stars  Bovi, Warri Pikin, DatWarri Girl and Temisan Emmanuel. 

The third season of this half-hour comedy heads straight to Accelerate TV on YouTube, in a move that has seen the bank-sponsored platform gain more significant audience viewership.


YouTube has had a profound impact on Nollywood with its vast reach and accessibility. The streaming platform has revolutionized the way Nollywood films are distributed, consumed, and shared. Previously, Nollywood struggled with limited distribution channels and piracy issues. However, YouTube provided a platform for filmmakers to showcase their work to a global audience without the constraints of traditional distribution models.

This newfound exposure not only propelled Nollywood onto the international stage but also opened up opportunities for collaboration, cross-cultural exchange, and easy accessibility to Nigerian content. Some successful titles that gained popularity on the platform are  Ndani TV’s Game On, the evergreen classic Skinny Girl in Transit, Red TV’s The Men’s Club, and  TNC Africa’s Little Black Book.
