Top Nigerian comedian, Ayo Makun, popularly known as AY is set to hold the world premiere of his new movie, A Trip to Jamaica in Lagos on September 25, 2016.
AY made the announcement to the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday.
He said the movie was a response to the request for a sequel by fans of the successful 30 Days in Atlanta.
In his words, “After the success of 30 Days in Atlanta, there were a lot of calls for more. So we decided to do a spinoff to showcase further adventures of Akpos”.
“A Trip to Jamaica’ bridges the gap between Nollywood, Ghollywood, Hollywood and the Jamaican movie industry.”
AY also added that a novelty football match between prominent former Jamaican and Nigerian footballers like Kanu Nwankwo, Jay Jay Okocha, Peter Rufai, Joseph Yobo, Mutiu Adepoju and Victor Ikpeba will come before the premiere.
He said, “Using a football match which will showcase these great players who have all worn their individual countries national colours at international competitions is a fitting way to herald the release of the movie.
“The football game will be witnessing live comedy and musical performances as a way of celebrating the cultures of these unique countries.”
A Trip to Jamaica was co-written by AY and Dianne Diaz and directed by Robert Peters, who also directed 30 Days in Atlanta. It stars Ayo Makun, Funke Akindele, Eric Roberts, Paul Campbell, Dan Davies, Rebecca Silvera, Nse Ikpe Etim, Chris Attoh with cameo appearances from music stars Cynthia Morgan, Patoranking and Olamide.
The movie would be available on cinemas across Nigeria from September 30.
