Ever wondered what the behind the scenes of a Nigerian’s wedding preparation looked like? Talk about how expensive a typical Nigerian wedding is, and all the drama that could occur pre and post a wedding party with the new “The Wedding Party” movie, I’m sure the ones who have gotten married can confirm that is exactly some of those things they experienced.
This movie is one which can be described as a laugh out loud comedy film. “The Wedding Party” is a star-studded romantic comedy that gives every actor and character the room to be important and relevant to the story without ruining it. This movie was directed by award-winning filmmaker and New York Film School alumni, Kemi Adetiba and produced by Mo Abudu.
The Wedding Party stars Banky W, Adesua Etomi, Sola Sobowale, Alibaba, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Ireti Doyle, Zainab Balogun, AY, Ikechukwu, Beverly Naya, Emma OhMaGod, Lepacious Bose and a host of others.
Set in Lagos, Nigeria, the movie tells the story of Dunni Coker and Dozie Onwuka’s wedding. Dunni Coker, a 24 -year-old art gallery owner and only daughter of her parents is about to marry the love of her life, IT entrepreneur Dozie. The couple took a vow of chastity and is looking forward to their first night together as a married couple. The awaited Wedding day finally arrives and it comes with lots of unexpected drama. a clear and understandable romantic comedy.
Class and tribal differences add to the hilarious drama in this Kemi Adetiba’s romantic comedy, as the Onwukas are Igbo while the Cokers are Yoruba. From the spoken words, gestures and facial expressions, the relationship and competition between Mrs Onwuka and Mrs Coker play a huge part in ensuring that “The Wedding Party” remains true to its genre. They represent the reality of tribalism and classism in Nigeria which is not always as funny as theirs.
“The Wedding Party” benefits from the efforts of its apt cast. It is buoyed up by performances from both veterans and the younger actors. Sola Sobowale is most certainly the life of the movie and is at the top of her game playing the viewers favourite Tinuade Coker. Nobody else could bring this much life to this character as she did. A typical caring and protective Nigerian or particularly Yoruba mother, Sobowale nails the act.
