The film ‘A Tribe Called Judah’ grossed more than ₦1.4 billion at the box office, selling over 374,000 tickets.

As of February 16, the Funke Akindele-produced comedy-drama had sold 374,542 tickets, generating ₦1,404,187,806.

ATCJ, which opens in theaters on December 15, stars Funke Akindele, Timini Egbuson, Jide Kene Achufusi, Uzee Usman, Tobi Makinde Olumide Oworu, Genoveva Umeh, Nse Ikpe Etim, Juliana Olayode, Uzor Arukwe, Fathia Balogun, Yvonne Jegede, and many others.

It portrays the narrative of Jedidah Judah (played by Funke Akindele), a single woman with five sons from various dads and tribal backgrounds.

The first two sons are responsible and do their best to work and assist their mother, while the remaining three are less helpful.

One son, Pere (played by Timini Egbuson), is a serial pickpocket. Tobi Makinde’s character, Shina, is a tout in the neighborhood. The final character, Ejiro (Olumide Oworu), is mischievous and only cares about his girlfriend, Testimony (Geneva Umeh).

Regardless of their poor behavior, Jedidah continues to support them and keep them out of danger.

Jedidah’s severe kidney illness necessitates a ₦18 million procedure and ₦400,000 weekly dialysis costs.

The first son, Emeka, loses his job, leaving the five boys with little choice but to rob Emeka’s ex-boss, who is suspected of money laundering.

Desperate to save their mother’s life, their preparations take a dramatic turn when they face armed thieves on the spot.

‘A Tribe Called Judah’ is the first Nollywood film to gross over ₦1 billion at the box office.

Funke Akindele’s ‘Battle on Buka Street’, released in 2022, is the second highest-grossing movie in Nigeria, earning ₦668,423,056.
