The Wedding Party 1 was a movie that certainly left Nigerians wanting more. The romance-comedy movie which showed the tribal struggles of a typical interethnic marriage in Nigeria was surely a hit, grossing over N400 million in the box office. Even while showcasing the struggle in this type of marriage, the movie still managed to get a lot of viewers going ‘aww’ since love conquered all the cultural and social differences that faced both families and the couple – Dozie Onwuka (Banky W) of the igbo, Onwuka, family and Dunni Coker (Adesua Etomi) from the very Yoruba, Coker family.
The movie which was directed by Kemi Adetiba featured such comedy that made for subtle and fun presentation while addressing core issues in our society today. It is great news then, that the makers have gone to work on the Wedding Party 2 and its release date has been announced for 15th December 2017.
Just incase you are wondering who this wedding party features as the celebrants, its Dozie’s brother Nonso and Dunni’s friend, DeArdre Winston.
The trailer of the movie already has us waiting in so much anticipation as we have some awesome acts added to the throng of the first part. The likes of Patience Ozokwor and a host of others are in the cast for this second part, with the bulk of the main cast from the first part unchanged.
With all of the development so far, the part 2 of the movie looks like it would be a hit just like the preceding one, but we can only hope that the movie lives up to its expectations.
