The Wedding Party, a romantic comedy, directed by award-winning filmmaker and New York Film School alumni, Kemi Adetiba will hit the cinemas nationwide in December.
Written by Tosin Otudeko, ‘The Wedding Party’ is the product of the collaboration of Africa’s leading film powerhouses EbonyLife Films, FilmOne Distribution, Inkblot Productions and Koga Studios.
Set in Lagos, The Wedding Party is a riveting tale of the complexity of love. The plot tells of a 24-year-old art gallery owner Dunni Coker who is the only daughter of her parents. She plans to marry the love of her life, Dozie, an IT entrepreneur. The lovers take a vow of chastity and anticipate a ground-breaking first night together as a married couple.
The date is set and the bride’s parents, who have recently enjoyed a surge in their fortunes decided to make the wedding a memorable one. Dunni’s mother-in-law in waiting, Obianuju is having second thoughts about allowing her son marry into a humble family.
This truth and other intrigues make the drama a very fascinating one. The Wedding Party is the second offering from EbonyLife Films after last year’s FIFTY. FIFTY reportedly has the biggest premiere in the history of the Nigerian Movie Industry and is the top grossing Nigerian film of 2015.
