Nigeria highest grossing movie ever, The Wedding Party is set to continue the shoot of its sequel in Dubai.
Revealing this on their official website, Ebonylife TV reported:
The rumours that have been swirling around for months have finally been confirmed – Nigeria’s highest-grossing film, The Wedding Party, will be shooting scenes for a sequel in Dubai. Stars of the hit film begin arriving in the emirate on May 11 for a two-week schedule.
Executive producer, Mo Abudu revealed her excitement at the experience:
Ever since Dubai Tourism partnered with us on the Grand Premiere of The Wedding Party, it’s been my dream to bring the sequel here. We weren’t sure if it was going to be possible, but the amazing success of the movie made it more likely and Dubai Tourism came through for us, along with Tour Brokers International and Wontra Travel. With a great script by Naz Onuzo, an experienced director, Niyi Akinmolayan, the original cast and the beautiful sights and sounds of Dubai, we think we may have a bigger blockbuster on our hands.
In an all-out attempt to broaden the appeal of this much-anticipated sequel, the producers, The ELFIKE Collective, have added a number of popular Nollywood stars and personalities, including Patience Ozokwo aka Mama G, Chigul, Seyi Law and Elenu, and international cast members. With scenes shot in Lagos, London and Dubai, the film promises to be a visual feast.
