The sequel to blockbuster romantic-comedy, ‘The Wedding Party’, is set to hit cinemas on December 15.
‘The Wedding Party 1’ premiered in cinemas across Nigeria in December 2016.
It’s follow-up, ‘The Wedding Party 2: Destination Dubai’, focuses on Dozie (Banky W ) the groom’s brother, Nonso (played by Enyinna Nwigwe), who has continued his romance with Deirdre (played by Daniella Down), the bridesmaid from London.
While on a dinner date, Nonso proposes by accident and that sets off a chain of intriguing events.
After an unpleasant introduction ceremony in Lagos, both families reluctantly agreed to a wedding in Dubai, setting off other comical and chaotic episodes of the Wedding Party story.
Besides the original movie’s main cast, other Nollywood stars including Patience Ozokwor, Omoni Oboli and ace comedians Seyi Law and Chigurl are also featured in the sequel.

The producers say The Wedding Party 1 grossed a total box office in excess of N450 million in less than 10 months and became the highest-grossing Nollywood film ever.
The Wedding Party is produced by ELFIKE Film Collective; a partnership between Ebony Life Films, FilmOne Distribution, Inkblot Productions and Koga Studios.
