By the end of this year, the wedding party would have been four years old and still, no movie has dethroned it as the highest-grossing Nigerian film. However, many other movies seemed to have borrowed a thing or two from the blockbuster to make their own movies and as a result, we have some movies sharing elements of the film. Below are movies that are similar to the wedding party.
Released in 2018, Chief Daddy follows a billionaire who dies, and his family, friends, and staff all try to get ahold of his wealth. As the wedding party, the film features an ensemble cast including Patience Ozokwor and Richard Mofe Damijo who were also in the wedding party franchise. The film also centers on a family tussle among extended family members which is a similar theme to TWP.
Released in 2019, Bling Lagosians tells the story of the Holloway family as they prepare for the matriarch’s 51st birthday party. Like TWP, there is a huge party ahead but family drama and scandals stand in the way. The film also features an ensemble cast of Sharon Ooja, Alex Ekubo, Elvina Ibru, Toyin Abraham, and many others.
It seems every movie is about a billionaire these days. Your Excellency tells the story of a billionaire who is also a failed presidential candidate who becomes a contender for a major political party using social media. Like TWP, there is an ensemble cast of Funke Akindele, Akin Lewis, Alex Ekubo, Osas Ighodaro, Ini Dima-Okojie, Falz, Helen Paul, and many others.
