The musician who has made a number of cameo appearances in movies like Gidi Blues and the popular MTVShuga series is taking center stage in EbonyLife Films‘ romantic comedy – The Wedding Party alongside Adesua Etomi.
Set in Lagos, Nigeria, The Wedding Party is a riveting tale of the complexity of love. It is the story of Dunni Coker (Adesua Etomi), a 24 year old art gallery owner and only daughter of her parents about to marry the love of her life, IT entrepreneur Dozie (Banky W). The couple took a vow of chastity and is looking forward to a ground-breaking first night together as a married couple. The date has been set and the bride’s parents (Alibaba and Sola Sobowale) who have recently enjoyed a surge in their fortunes, are going all out to make this the wedding of the century. Dunni’s about to be mother-in-law, Obianuju (Iretiola Doyle) is having second thoughts about allowing her son marry into a family she considers beneath them. Dozie’s father is played by Richard Mofe-Damijo.
