Omoni Oboli’s movie, ‘Wives on Strike’, has reportedly broken standard records again by grossing N60 million, after making a hit of over N15 million in just three days and N51 million in 17 days. FilmOne COO, Moses Babatope, speaking on the box office record said;
“Wives on Strike has surprised everyone. They expected a decent run at the cinemas but no one expected this record breaking standard the movie is setting at the box-office. The records of the movie has truly amazed everyone.”
The movie which has surpassed “The Barber’s Shop,” “Jungle Book” and “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” in Nigerian Box Office, is beating The Huntsman despite being in cinema for just three weeks.
Babatope describes this feat as so amazing, adding that Omoni is truly the Nollywood personality of the year and definitely casting her name in gold.
Omoni Oboli who was in awe of the success of the movie so far, last week said; “I am full of gratitude. People have shown me so much love. The record is humbling. I am grateful.”
Oboli made her movie directing debut with the romantic comedy ‘Being Mrs Elliott ‘. Her second movie “The First Lady,” had also opened as the highest grossing opening weekend Nigerian film in cinemas.
The movie is a hilarious comedy about a group of market women who decided to take matters into their own hands against their husbands in a bid to stir them into standing up for a young girl whom they wanted to protect from the wishes of her own father.
The women, who hilariously interpret their roles, set a series of events in motion to give the movie many moments of laughter without missing a beat on the reason for everyone to know why they are on strike.
