EbonyLife produced film, ‘Chief Daddy’ has become the third Nollywood movie in the Nigerian cinemas to hit over N300 million barely one month after it was released.
The movie hit N301,815,569 at the box-office to solidify its position as the third-highest-grossing Nollywood movie of all time.
Although ‘Chief Daddy’ is some distance behind ‘The Wedding Party’ (N453 million) and ‘The Wedding Party 2’ (N502 million), the pace of its performance suggests that there is every possibility that it will close the gap considerably.
Moses Babatope, COO of FilmOne Distribution expressed his surprise the film’s performance.
“To be perfectly honest, we didn’t see this coming. Chief Daddy’s gross revenues are virtually neck-and-neck withThe Wedding Party at the same point in its cinema run.”
‘Chief Daddy’ is still showing in cinemas across Nigeria and at Silverbird cinemas in Accra, Ghana.
