Toyin Abraham's Alakada Reloaded Makes N25 million In its First 3 Days In Cinema

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 cinema.

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”.

BBB Media Executive, Taiwo Ajuwon also spoke on why the movie is a huge success, "Nothing great comes on a platter. Our client made a great film and wanted cinema success and that became our mantra. The buzz for the movie had started long before now.What we are seeing now are just the results of the hardwork from everyone involved in the film and the marketing", she said.

Alakada Reloaded, which is the third production in the popular Alakada series 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. The movie was co-produced by Filmservice media owned by Bolakale Oba Sa'ad.


This comedy movie parades a star-studded cast both from the English and Yoruba film sector, was well as a host of Nigerian comedians and musical artistes. They include Ali Baba, Odunlade Adekola, Kehinde Bankole, Woli Arole, Nedu OAP, Helen Paul, Lilian Esoro, Annie Idibia, Bidemi Kosoko, Liz Da Silva, Lala Akindoju, Mr Latin, Iyabo Ojo, Gabriel Afolayan and Toyin Abraham herself.

Alakada Reloaded is doing great and still showing at all cinemas across the country. The film is expected to be a hit and eventually break another box office record.

Well, that movie wasn't funny though. Only one part was funny. That was where she was calling out names of movies that popular yoruba meme guy did. I felt cheated o after seeing the movie. I guess I have high expectations cos some others laughed through out.

Nice... but yetunde can lie sha

From the response yesterday at the cinema it was obvious the movie will make much sales. While other tickets were selling between N1000-N1200, Alakada was selling for N1500 yet its queue was so long.
I opted to see Slow Country since I wasn't too sure if Alakada was a Yoruba or English movie.

The movie is not worth ur time nd money saw it at Maryland mall on Sunday nd I regretted paying 2500 for that scrap. I love toyin as a person though bt blatant truth here is alakada is stupid nd not worth all this hype.

Nonsense movie, disjointed stor(ies), Infact headless storyline. Choi, everybody was just shouting even my Lilian esoro and kehinde that used to act so well. It wasn't worth it and to think some people were actually laughing.
We have more of semi illiterates in this country, like it's so obvious. Cinema in Abuja here even chose to show the rubbish movie on public hol over slow country that was well done, as in u can literally see that a lot of hardwork went into it. Oriegwu. They were d ones that even recommended this Alakaja for me, the lady was lucky she had left when I came out, cos I was really pissed
