Tendo Nagenda, the vice president of Netflix Films, said: "Femi Fadugba. You may not know his name, but once you've read 'The Upper World' you won't be able to forget it.

"That's what happened to me after producer Eric Newman introduced me to the book. I can count on one hand the times I've connected with a novel so viscerally.

'The Upper World' - which is the first in a planned series of novels - is set to be released in the UK in 2021, and in the US in 2022.
