‘I am very happy, God has been so good to me and my fans have been so wonderful. I am extremely happy. We worked really hard on this movie, and I’m glad the hard work is paying off. I was expecting something like this but not this big. 25 million naira in three days is huge’
‘We have made 50 million naira now and it has only been a week since the movie was released to the cinemas. The rate at which we are selling out is mind blowing, even in non-Yoruba speaking state. I have been visiting different cinemas, along with other casts members and many other celebrities and people in large numbers have been storming the cinema to see the movie. It’s honestly humbling and I feel so loved and accepted. I am super grateful for this success and for the kind of fans I have. I just want this to continue as long as the movie remains in cinema’.
