Niyi Akinmolayan Is Directing ‘The Wedding Party’ Sequel
The second part of ‘The Wedding Party’ is on the way, but Kemi Adetiba is not directing.
According to executive producer of the film and CEO of EbonyLife Films, Mo Abudu; shooting for the film reportedly commenced on May 1, 2017.
And it is being directed by Niyi Akinmolayan whose 'The Arbitration' is regarded by many as one of the great films of 2016.
In "The Wedding Party" sequel Nonso (Enyinna Nwigwe), has continued his romance with Deirdre (Daniella Down), the bridesmaid from London.
Somehow, Nonso manages to propose by accident, while on a dinner date and sets off a chain of events too powerful to stop.
Deirdre’s upper-crust British family are against the match, as are some members of the Nigerian clan, but Deirdre’s determination can’t be contained.
After a near-disastrous introduction ceremony in Lagos and Nigerian opposition to a London wedding, both families reluctantly agree to a wedding in Dubai, setting us off on another colourful, chaotic and memorable journey to everlasting love.
The Wedding Party which featured Adesua Etomi, Banky W, Richard Mofe-Damijo and Ireti Doyle grossed close to half a billion naira in Nigerian cinemas following its release on December 16, 2016.
