What Nollywood Movies Made the Most Money in August?

In the world of Nollywood, August has been nothing short of spectacular. Let’s dive into the remarkable achievements of the Nollywood film industry in 2023. According to the Cinema Exhibition Association of Nigeria, these are the creme da la creme of the highest-grossing Nollywood films:

1. Orisa

First on our cinematic journey is “Orisa”, a creation by the visionary Odunlade Adekola. This tale follows a fallen king who endures exile, losing not only his crown but his connection to the divine.

His disrespect for both his people and the gods earns him madness, and when a past terrorist associate seeks vengeance, his turmoil deepens. Released on July 21, 2023, “Orisa” continues its compelling narrative within the confines of theaters.

2. The Kujus Again

Moving onward, we encounter “The Kujus Again”. This sequel, crafted by the directorial prowess of Biodun Stephen, chronicles a loving yet turbulent family’s endeavor to orchestrate a wedding. Amidst the well-intentioned chaos, errors emerge as the Kujus strive to bridge divides.

Despite the wedding’s misadventures, love prevails, illuminating the screen with heartwarming moments. Temple ‘TMPL’ Motion Pictures, in collaboration with Biodun Stephen, spearheads this cinematic gem.

3. Big Love

Enter “Big Love”, a creation borne of Biodun Stephen’s creative brilliance and Inkblot Production’s expertise. This film unfurls the tale of Adil (Timini Egbuson) and Adina (Bimbo Ademoye), two souls entwined by love.

Adil’s affection for Adina blooms, even as she faces the challenges of a demanding life. With a release on June 28, 2023, “Big Love” ascends to the pinnacle of Nollywood cinema, securing its place as a treasured tale.


4. Love In A Pandemic

Amidst the tumult of a pandemic-stricken world, “Love In A Pandemic” emerges as a poignant narrative. Crafted by Akay Mason, this film follows Bolanle Davis (Nancy Isime) as she navigates the treacherous waters of romance during the COVID-19 pandemic. Her encounter with Alex (Deyemi Okanlawon) sets the stage for a compelling story of love tested by the most trying of times. In collaboration with Bleeding Heart Production and filmOne, “Love In A Pandemic” stands tall with a gross of N46 million.

5. The Bride Price

Our cinematic journey concludes with “The Bride Price”, a creation that peels back the layers of human pride. AstraTV Africa presents the story of Obiora (Zubby Michael) and Chioma (Beverly Ukegbu), whose love story unfolds amidst familial discord and ill-advised choices. With a production that mirrors life’s struggles, “The Bride Price” reveals the consequences of pride and the quest for redemption. As of May 5, 2023, this film has earned a remarkable gross of N30 million.
In the grand tapestry of Nollywood’s 2023 offerings, these films stand as a testament to the power of storytelling and the magic of the silver screen.
