Omoni Oboli sets record: Becomes first Nollywood producer to have 5 consecutive blockbusters


Actor and producer, Omoni Oboli is not new to filmmaking. From Being Mrs. Elliot, First Lady, Wives On Strike, Okafor’s Law and now to Wives on Strike Revolution, she has successfully cemented her place in the history books as the first female Nollywood filmmaker to have consecutively produced and marketed her movies into becoming hits at the cinemas.

Her latest effort, Wives on Strike Revolution follows up on the chronicles of the women’s fight against domestic violence after one of them was beaten to death by her husband. This leads to yet another strike, by the women against their husbands forcing their hands to stand up for what is right.

 

The movie opened to the public on December 29, 2017 has gone on to become the movie with the most favourable review at the currently. The record sales experienced in just one week has gone on to confirm that Omoni Oboli may have outdone herself this time.

The movie parades an array of stars that brought life into the movie: Odunlade Adekola, an abusive husband who fell to his knees the moment his wife stood up to him. Sola Sobowale was the typical Iyaloja who claimed to have installed Tinubu, Fashola and Ambode as Governors. Julius Agwu, Saka, Uche Jombo, Kenneth Okonkwo, Kalu Ikeagwu, Chigurl and more are also worthy of note. One of the most distinctive acts in the movie remains Toyin Abraham whose role in the movie appear to be custom made for her.
