Omoni Oboli‘s Wives On Strike has been moving in leaps and bounds since its release.
The movie grossed over 15 million Naira in three days, 51 million Naira in 17 days and new reports have emerged that the movie has now grossed a record breaking 60 million Naira 3 weeks since its premiere on April 8.
It has surpassed The Barber’s Shop, Jungle Book and The Huntsman: Winter’s War in the box office.
FilmOne COO, Moses Babatope remarked, “We 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. And to say it is beating The Huntsman despite being in cinema for three weeks is so amazing. Omoni is truly Nollywood personality of the year and definitely casting her name in gold.”
Omoni Oboli also expressed her gratitude to Nigerians for contributing to the huge success of the movie.
The movie features Nollywood stars like Uche Jombo, Chioma Akpotha, Ufuoma Mcdermott, Kehinde Bankole, Kalu Ikeagwu, Julius Agwu and Kenneth Okonkwo.
This is not her first successful rodeo though. She started out as a director with Being Mrs Elliott and followed up with The First Lady, both of which were huge successes in cinemas.
