So this past Saturday, the cast and crew members (producer, director, screen writer, camera guys, actors and actress) of the Nollywood blockbusters and current holder of the no 1 highest grossing Nollywood movie title “The Wedding Party” all converged at the Eko Hotel convention center, the same location used for filming the wedding reception of the same movie.
When the movie grossed over four hundred million, it was history making and I thought there should be a way in which the crew could celebrate the success but I never envisaged a gathering at the convention center for such merriment.
Not until now I never knew there use to be an after party for a successful movie.
The gathering had in attendance lead actor Banky W, Kene Mkparu, Moses Babatope, Kemi Adetiba, Somkele Idhalama, Mo Abdu, Beverly Naya, Tope Oshin and a lot more. Obviously absent was AY Makun fellow actor and ace producer who played the role of master of ceremony in the film and whose movie, “A trip to Jamaica” is the closest rival to the wedding party.

Hopefully is absence was as a result of the clashes in filming schedule of his new film, 10 days in sin city.
“The Wedding Party” is a romantic comedy that was released in 2016. Written by playwright, Tosin Otudeko, the movie starred Adesua Etomi, Banky W, Alibaba, Sola Sobowale, Ireti Doyle, Richard Mofe-Damijo,
A collaboration between EbonyLife Films, FilmOne Distribution, Koga Studios and Inkblot Productions, “The Wedding Party” is currently the highest grossing Nollywood movie of all time.
Whether the movie will get a sequel is still beyond us at the moment.
Below are some of the pictures from the event.
