Osuofia in London is a 2003 Nigerian comedy film produced and directed by Kingsley Ogoro and starring Nkem Owoh. The film is arguably one of the highest selling Nollywood films in history. It was followed by a 2004 sequel titled Osuofia in London 2.
Osuofia (Nkem Owoh), a bamboozled villager living in Nigeria, receives word on the demise of his brother Donatus in London, England. However, in his will, Donatus has left Osuofia his huge estate as sole beneficiary. Osuofia makes his way to London only to find his late brother's English fiancée Samantha (Mara Derwent) is not quite sure about following the Nigerian tradition of becoming part of the 'inheritance' herself. Cultural misunderstandings result in a comedy of errors.
