Imagine Nigerian music star Banky W playing a reformed playboy, AMVCA winner Adesua Etomi as an insecure virgin bride. Does that sound interesting?


Well here is some great news for African movie lovers. A new Nigerian film titled ‘The Wedding Party‘  has been scheduled to premiere at the opening night of the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival  on Thursday 8th September at the prestigious Elgin Theatre in Canada


The movie is an ELFIKE Film Collective production and was written by playwright Tosin Otudeko and filmmaker Kemi Adetiba. According to Kemi…


”Everyone knows how colourful, chaotic, hilarious, emotional and beautiful a NIGERIAN wedding is. The task of weaving a Rom-com story around these variables absolutely intrigued me. We tried to keep true to what you would find in a typical Nigerian wedding: the colours, the people, the fashion, even the food.”


Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD), Ireti Doyle, Beverly Naya, rapper Ikechukwu Onunaku are among some of the star-studded cast that bring this interesting film to life


Media Mogul Mo Abudu  who is an executive producer revealed in a press release that…. ”TIFF’s selection of ‘The Wedding Party’ is a true honour. I can’t think of a better place, or a better global audience for the film’s festival Premiere.
