The Wedding Party 2 – Destination Dubai is now reportedly the highest-grossing movie in the history of Nollywood.
According to reports, the movie which hit the cinemas on December 19, 2017 has earned N412 million at the Nigerian box-office and N55 million abroad, making it the biggest Nigerian movie in history to have grossed N467 million worldwide.
The movie has now surpassed the success of its prequel, “The Wedding Party” which grossed N453m.
The Executive Producer of the movie, Mo Abudu reacted to the success of the film, saying “Yipee! Yes we did it. The Wedding Party 2 – Destination Dubai is now the highest grossing Nollywood movie of all time. Breaking the record we had last year. A big thank you to everyone that has contributed to this recording breaking achievement. God bless and keep you all and may you all continue to break global records in all you do. #TWP2 is still showing in cinemas nationwide, so you can still watch it with friends and loved ones.”
Moses Babatope, COO of FilmOne Distribution also reacted saying that “We definitely hoped for this level of success in and out of Nigeria; however, it has been astounding to see, particularly in light of the international blockbuster movies TWP 2 had to contend with at cinemas – Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Jumanji, Pitch Perfect 3, Ferdinand and Paddington. We look forward to the film opening soon in the USA, Canada, the Caribbean and Middle East.”
Directed by Niyi Akinmolayan, “TW P2” cast includes Richard Mofe-Damijo, Sola Sobowale, Enyinna Nwigwe, Adesua Etomi, Patience Ozokwor, Ireti Doyle, Banky W and Daniella Down.
“The Wedding Party” is a partnership between EbonyLife Films, FilmOne Distribution, Inkblot Productions and Koga Studios.
