“Omo Ghetto’ Takes Over as Highest Grossing Nollywood Movie





Actress Funke Akindele-Bello popularly known as Jenifa’s movie, “Omo Ghetto” (The Saga), has been declared Nollywood’s highest grossing movie of all time.

In a statement released by Cinema Exhibitors Association of Nigeria (CEAN), the 2020 comedy has so far grossed N468,036,300 after holding the number one spot for three weeks in a row.

“Omo Ghetto’ has officially broken a four years record by knocking off Kemi Adetiba’s 2016 Comedy movie, “The Wedding Party.”

The movie had been Nollywood Highest Grossing Movie with N453,000,000, in the third place is ‘The Wedding Party 2 with N433,197,377,” the statement said.

Lefty (Funke Akindele) struggled between living a life of wealth and comfort provided by her adopted mother or returning to her ghetto lifestyle.

The comedy stars Funke Akindele in the dual role of Ayomide and Lefty, Tina Mba, Adebayo Salami aka Oga Bello, Chioma Akpotha, Bimbo Thomas and Eniola Badmus.

Others are Deyemi Okanlawon, Zubby Michael, Mercy Aigbe, Timini Egbuson, Alex Ekubo among others.
