The comedy-drama is now holding two outstanding records for the year.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
The Kujus Again by Biodun Stephen is now in theaters and shattering records at the box office.
The comedy-drama has made nearly 17 million since it opened in theaters on April 21, 2023. The outcome is that this year’s biggest opening weekend for a Nollywood film went to the movie.
The Kujus Again is the top-grossing Nollywood film at the domestic box office, ahead of Domitilla: The Reboot in second place with 34 million dollars and Maniac in third with 1.5 million dollars.
The movie is anticipated to generate some more ticket sales now that the elections are passed, which had a detrimental impact on earlier releases.
The film is a follow-up to Introducing The Kujus (2020), which recounts the realistic tale of a young woman’s love for her family and how this love brings her family back together. It is directed by Stephen.
With an engagement and a wedding, the new movie continues the endearing, funny story of the Kuju family.
Don Jazzy, the CEO of Mavin Records, DJ Big N, Ben Lugo, Sophia Augustine, and Lilo Aderogba are recent additions to the film.
On casting the musician, Stephen told Shockng, “…We knew we were going to cast him from the jump, so he was involved in the entire process. He wanted to be an integral part of the story and he did that.”
The returning cast includes Bisola Aiyeola, Bisola Aiyeola, Sophie Alakija, Kunle Remi, MC Lively, Bimbo Ademoye, Chris Iheuwa, and Timini Egbuson.
The movie The Kujus Again is now showing in theaters.
