Recall the first instalment of The Wedding Party, which came in at N9.6 Million and became the highest grossing movie in the history of Nollywood. The Wedding Party scooped a record-setting year at the Nigerian box office, grossing 3.5 billion Naira (around $11.5 million) in 2016, with nearly 30% coming from local pics, marking the first time Nigerian films have crossed the billion naira threshold. The Executive Producer Mo Abudu, disclosed that the movie generated N20 Million in its first day at the box office. “It has surpassed all our expectations and it’s been an incredible ride”, she said.
