It’s been almost a year since the romantic comedy The Wedding Party was released, becoming the highest grossing Nollywood movie of all time by a considerable margin. Since then, a number of other movies have tried to take its crown but none have come close.
It seems the only movie that can actually take down The Wedding Party is The Wedding Party itself – well, its sequel anyway. Titled The Wedding Party 2: Destination Dubai, the highly anticipated follow-up just got a one-minute teaser that has us all hyped.
The sequel focuses on the groom’s brother, Nonso (played by Enyinna Nwigwe), who has continued his romance with Deirdre (played by Daniella Down), the bridesmaid from London.
Nonso proposes by accident, while on a dinner date, and sets off a chain of events too powerful to stop. Deirdre’s upper-class British family is against the pairing, as are some members of the Nigerian clan.
After a near-disastrous introduction ceremony in Lagos, both families reluctantly agree to a wedding in Dubai, setting off another colourful, chaotic and memorable journey to everlasting love.
The original movie’s main cast will be returning, with a couple of fresh faces including Patience Ozokwor, Omoni Oboli, Seyi Law, Chigurl and more.
The Wedding Party 2: Destination Dubai will hit cinemas on December 15.
