The much awaited star studded comedy movie, ‘Alakada Reloaded’ is set to make its cinema debut on May 26. The comedy movie produced by Toyin Abraham will be shown in all cinemas across the country.

The movie is set to break record as industry stakeholders have predicted that after ‘Wedding Party’, in terms of sale, the much awaited movie ‘Alakada Reloaded’ might be the next to make over 200 million naira. ‘Alakada Reloaded’ is the third production in the popular Alakada series; the first released was in 2009, while the second was released in 2013. It follows the story of Yetunde Animashaun, a young girl from a poor family background who as a result of her inferiority complex, engages in the act of making up stories and lying about her financial and social status in order to fit in with the crowd.

When asked about the movie and its difference to the previous production of Alakada, the producer Toyin Abraham said, “Although ‘Alakada Reloaded’ like the previous productions in the series follows the story of Yetunde Animashan, however, this movie takes a different dimension from the others. ‘Alakada Reloaded’ is not just extremely hilarious and entertaining; it cuts across all spheres of lives and realities.”

She further stated that “the movie is well cultured, morally inclined, and deep rooted and suitable for everyone to watch, old and young and I am confident that the audience will love it.” The comedy movie which is set to be privately screened on Thursday, May 18 is a must watch for all.
