Further-more, Charles had this to say about hitting 50 million in the first week:

“It’s the Lords doing and it’s marvelous in our eyes!!! Thank you all, please keep spreading the word, without you going to the cinemas we wouldn’t push these numbers. I urge you all to go out, take a friend your family and join us in keeping alive our history, culture and heritage. Nollywood has come to stay !!!!”

Charles Okpaleke had earlier announced on his Instagram page that the film was breaking records even in its first weekend.

  • No 1 film in West Africa
  • Highest Opening Weekend for a Nollywood Film in 2019
  • 50 million naira in its first week.

The Sequel, like the original primarily tells the story of a young man desperate for riches and willing to do anything to get it. Here, we have Nnamdi (Swanky JKA) whose quest for the good life takes him to Chief Omego (Kanayo) and Richard Williams (Nouah).

As a world-class billionaire and the spiritual leader of a powerful cult known as ‘The Six’, it is expected that Nouah would live a life of unbelievable affluence and we see just that. Expect to see everything from a private jet, yacht to exotic fast cars and luxurious mansions.

Familiar faces from the first movie such as Okwonkwo, Bob-Manuel Udokwu, and Kanayo O. Kanayo make appearances in this 2019 film.
