Funke Akindele's 'Omo Ghetto' Is Officially The Highest Grossing Nollywood Movie Of All Time.

 

The directorial debut film "Omo Ghetto (The Saga)" by Funke Akindele-Bello and JJC Skillz has been called the highest-grossing film of all time in Nollywood.

According to a statement released by the Cinema Exhibitors Association of Nigeria (CEAN), the 2020 comedy film broke a four-year record held by Kemi Adetiba's 2016 film "The Wedding Party" after it grossed N468,036,300 after three straight weeks of holding the number one spot.

On the other hand, "The Wedding Party" raked in N453,000,000 while N433,197,377 took third place with its sequel "The Wedding Party 2".

Though this came as a surprise as the Nigerian entertainment industry has been ravaged by the pandemic, Kemi Adetiba who produced Wedding Party (formerly the largest movie) tweeted;


"Just want to inform y'all that Funke Akindele is about to break the WEDDING PARTY 1 record... If she hasn't broken it already. If you understand how INCREDIBLE this feat would be in a non-covid year, then you'll understand even how more crazy it is in a covid year. I'm GINGERED!"

The movie was released on December 25, 2020, starring Funke Akindele in the dual role of Ayomide and Lefty, Tina Mba, Adebayo Salami aka Oga Bello, Chioma Akpotha, Bimbo Thomas, Eniola Badmus, Deyemi Okanlawon, Zubby Michael, Mercy Aigbe, Timini Egbuson, Alex Ekubo.

It is a sequel to the 'Omo Ghetto' 2010 trilogy and follows Shalewa aka Lefty's tumultuous life (Funke Akindele).
