Earning a record-breaking number, The Wedding Party, a romantic comedy became the first Nigerian film to pass the N400 million  (around $1.3 million) mark after being at the top of box office for over 10 weeks.

 

Media mogul behind the movie, Mo Abudu told Variety Magazine that “It has surpassed all our expectations. It’s been an incredible ride.”

The movie also capped a record-setting year for the Nigerian box office, which grossed N3.5 billion (around $11.5 million) in 2016, with nearly 30%  coming from local pictures, marking the first time Nigerian films have crossed the billion Naira threshold.

With Nigerian born Hollywood actor, John Boyega aiming to shoot a low budget Nigerian movie, Müntefering’s recommendation seek to further give a global acceptance to the movie industry.
