800m+ in only 3 weeks and counting.....

Seasoned Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, has broken her previous record as her latest cinema release ‘A tribe Called Judah’, hits N854 million gross in less than a month of its release.

The Nation reported that the movie star’s film circulated the cinemas from December 15, 2023 as has since been making waves with a very large margin away from her previous records.

The flyer stated that the movie had grossed N854 million and is currently the highest-grossing film ever in the history of movie production in Nigeria.

Na wa o. Only Yoruba. Wetin dey worry other ethnic groups? Abi na so all of una dull? Be like na so so dull dull people full other ethnic group. Una well done o, low IQ Nigerians. Where that dull Ijaw boy, Ebi2233 or so, come and explain why una dull like dollar.

When they can't pirate and exploit other people through fake and fraud, they will not be able to measure up.

Ever since the music and movie sales has gone digital, people with true talents are reaping the benefit of their hard work.

Piracy now at the lowest.

Funke Akindele's movies is always featuring Yoruba and Igbos. Aside that, her stories are wonderful, marketing is good and she releases her movies in festive periods. Little wonder why it made so much money.

BTW, I think If not that the north has its own industry!
She for feature the three main tribes and make the best out of it!

Yet! Some people are still on Nairaland fighting tribal wars.

Tribalism is really a poor man's disease!

So her movie gross because she’s featuring Ibos?

Then what about the movies that are done by the Ibos themselves? Applying your logic, that should have grossed much too right? So why are they not in top 10?

Yes, that is the thing I deduced from your post.

You’re just using Hausa to cover for your insecurities about trying to claim “Funke movies are successful because she add Ibo people to her movies”.

I'm not disputing the fact, but none of them made it close to the top five! And the top five had that similarity.

Besides, I made the comment because they don turn the thread into some else!

Even the topic sef... What does it even mean?
