After the success of Kemi Adebita’s directed Rom Com last year “The Wedding Party” reports surfaced online last month that Ebonylife films, Inkblot production, Film one distribution and Koga Studios will be treating us to a sequel of the hour plus rib cracking movie.
After a movie set photo of the sequel which started shooting last month surfaced online, it had now been confirmed that the ace director, Kemi Adebita would not be returning to direct the sequel.
Niyi Akinmolayan, who is popular for “Out of Luck,” “The Arbitration,” “Room 315,” and “Falling” will be directing the sequel.
The synopsis for “The Wedding Party 2” reads:
In “The Wedding Party” sequel Nonso (Enyinna Nwigwe), has continued his romance with Deirdre (Daniella Down), the bridesmaid from London. Somehow, Nonso manages to propose by accident, while on a dinner date, and sets off a chain of events too powerful to stop.
Deirdre’s upper-crust British family are against the match, as are some members of the Nigerian clan, but Deirdre’s determination can’t be contained.
After a near-disastrous introduction ceremony in Lagos and Nigerian opposition to a London wedding, both families reluctantly agree to a wedding in Dubai, setting us off on another colourful, chaotic and memorable journey to everlasting love.
The release date of “The Wedding Party 2” is yet to be announced.
