Lead actor Enyinna Nwigwe of “The Wedding Party 2” has said in an interview with The Guardian LIFE that the production collaboration involved in the movie franchise has never been witnessed in Nollywood before.
“It’s never been done before in the Nigerian space where four big studios come together to form the collective ELFIKE. No independent producer has such capacity or strength” he stated.
The Wedding Party and The Wedding Party 2: Destination Dubai were produced by the ELFIKE Film Collective. The collective is a partnership between Ebony Life Films, Film One Distribution, Inkblot Productions and Koga Studios. The Wedding Party is the most successful Nollywood movie at the box office with N453M. The Wedding Party 2 was released on December 15, 2017, with relatively the same cast.
According to Nwigwe ‘’the production collective is making movies that are bringing people back to the cinema,They have brought back confidence to the Nigerian cinema space. The class of people that would rather watch foreign movies, now consider Nigerian films because of The Wedding Party”
During the interview, Enyinna Nwigwe also stated that he knew that The Wedding Party was going to be a huge success.
“I realized that I actually had a higher projection in my head after reading the script and my projection was spot on in the end because I had looked at films that had come before, the model and the previously held record by AY. That’s just one brand and, putting it side by side with a film like this with the kind of ensemble cast, that mix alone will create some kind of interest and excitement, coming from a collective that is all very well in their space and then coming together to pull in their strengths” he said.
