Last night, Netflix South Africa, held an exclusive screening of Homecoming, a film by Beyoncé, at the University of Johannesburg to 400 students. The film which landed on the Netflix service yesterday was written, produced and directed by Beyoncé.
In light of the messaging that Homecoming presents – a celebration of Black Excellence – Netflix worked with talented black creatives, Cedric Nzaka as the photographer, the team at Ato Song as the videographers and Karabo and Zukhanye as the MCs. With a marching band building excitement and the local UJ Cheerleaders hyping up the crowd the night was a celebration of Homecoming.
The students showed up in swarms, ready to sing their hearts out to classics like Get Me Bodied and Check On It.
