- Just a week after the release of the “Th Return of Jenifa” around the country,is a feat which has never been achieved by any other Nollywood movie and this has earned the movie the title of ‘the fastest grossing Nollywood movie of all time’ by the cinema operators. And this feat is more remarkable as the movie is only showing in three cinemas, Silverbird Lagos and Abuja and Ozone Cinema in Yaba, Lagos.
Earning such a feat would come as no surprise as Funke has been known to have lite out some blockbusters movies in DVD; movies like Jenifa and Omo Ghetto were said to have sold in their numbers.This impressive show has made the movie earn close to N10 million in seven days which has made the cinema asked for two weeks extension to show the movie at the cinema. That means the movie will be at the cinema for four weeks.
And its grand premier at The Muson Center on Friday, October 7, the movie has been earned applause and respect of industry people who trooped out in their numbers to support the actress at the premiere which had the First Lady of Lagos in attendance. Others in attendance are, Eldee, Dayo Adeneye, Rita Dominic, Kate Henshaw, Oge Okoye, Ali Baba, Gbenga Adeyinka, AY, Julius Agwu, Tunde Kelani, Ireti Osayemi, Ibinabo Fiberesima, Chioma Chukwuka, Helen Paul, Queen Nwokoye, Adora Ukoh, Kunle Bakare, Mayor Akinpelu and others.
