Toyin Abraham's Alakada Reloaded makes N25 million, first 3 days in cinemas

Toyin Abraham’s Alakada Reloaded had a ground-breaking cinema debut weekend as the hilarious com­edy recorded sold out shows at a number of key cinema sites across the country.
The film grossed an unprec­edented N25million in its first 3 days at the cinemas.
Alakada Reloaded’s aston­ishing opening weekend, which began in cinemas nationwide last Friday, 26th May, has placed it firmly in the current top 5 re­leases of 2017. Other movies in this list include Okafor’s Law, which made N90million, Omug­wo, with N48million, Hire a Man with N45million and American Driver with N41million none of which beat Alakada’s opening weekend.
Reacting to the turnout of people at the cinemas to see the movie, actress and producer of the Alakada Reloaded, Toyin Abraham said, “I was at different cinemas throughout this week­end, and I was surprised at the reception from fans all over. Peo­ple, in large numbers were troop­ing in to see Alakada Reloaded; it was honestly mind-blowing. We recorded sold out shows ev­erywhere we went. I feel so loved and blessed. I am grateful to God for his blessings and my fans for their love and support. I have got the best fans. It’s so exciting and I want this to continue for as long as possible”.
The movie is currently show­ing at cinemas in Lagos, Kano, Ilorin, Warri, Owerri, Port-Har­court, Abuja, Asaba, Calabar, Ibadan, and Akure.
FilmOne Distribution Lim­ited, West Africa’s largest film distribution company and the exclusive theatrical distributor of the movie was most pleased with its success. Executive Director, Mr. Moses Babatope had this to say:
“Film Distribution is no joke. Even with comedy. It takes pas­sion, determination, a keen eye to spot potential, and a dedicated team to strategically maneuver that potential into box office suc­cess. From the moment Toyin walked into our office, we could sense her passion, and with the help of our amazing FilmOne team, we’ve been able to help her movie get where it needs to be – the top”.
