'Omo Ghetto' is officially the highest grossing Nollywood movie of all time (Updated: 2 years ago)


Funke Akindele-Bello and JJC Skillz’ directorial debut film “Omo Ghetto (The Saga)” has been named Nollywood’s highest-grossing movie of all time. 

The 2020 comedy movie broke a four-year record held by Kemi Adetiba’s 2016 movie “The Wedding Party“, after it grossed N468,036,300 after three straight weeks of maintaining the number one spot according to a statement published by the Cinema Exhibitors Association of Nigeria (CEAN).

“The Wedding Party” on the other hand has raked in N453,000,000 while its sequel “The Wedding Party 2” took the third spot with N433,197,377.

 

While this comes as a surprise as the Nigerian entertainment industry has been crippled by the pandemic, Kemi Adetiba who produced Wedding Party (the former highest-grossing 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!

Comedienne Anita Asuoha a.k.a Real Warri Pikin who congratulated Funke Akindele for achieving the great feat, wrote on Instagram;
