Omoni Oboli re­turns with Wives in Strike: The Rev­o­lu­tion’ this De­cem­ber

Weekly Trust - - Weekend | Laugh & Relax - Abubakar Adam Ibrahim

Af­ter the box of­fice suc­cess of her flick ‘Wives on Strike,’ ac­tress, writer, pro­ducer and direc­tor, Omoni Oboli re­turns with a se­quel ‘Wives on strike: The Rev­o­lu­tion.’

The orig­i­nal film de­buted in April last year grossed over N15mil­lion in 15 days and struck 60 mil­lion in a mat­ter of weeks in the box of­fice, mak­ing it one of the top Nol­ly­wood box of­fice movies ever. The suc­cess of that movie came on the heels of her March re­lease of ‘Okafor’s Law.’

‘Wives on Strike’ fol­lows the story of a group of mar­ket women who de­cided to take mat­ters into their own hands against their hus­bands in a bid to stir them into stand­ing up for a young girl whom they wanted to pro­tect from the wishes of her own fa­ther. The women, who hi­lar­i­ously in­ter­preted their roles, set a se­ries of events in mo­tion to give au­di­ences many mo­ments of laugh­ter with­out miss­ing a beat on the rea­son for ev­ery­one to know why they are on strike.

The se­quel fol­lows up on this story and chron­i­cles 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.

With stel­lar cast such as Omoni Oboli, Ufuoma McDer­mott, Uche Jombo, Toyin Abra­ham, Sola Sobowale, Chioma Akpotha, Julius Agwu, Odun­lade Adekola, Ken­neth Okonkwo and more, Wives on Strike: The Rev­o­lu­tion prom­ises to be fun, in­trigu­ing, ed­u­cat­ing and def­i­nitely hi­lar­i­ous.

Omoni Oboli made her di­rec­to­rial de­but with the ro­man­tic com­edy ‘Be­ing Mrs El­liott.’ Her sec­ond movie ‘The First Lady,’ had also opened as the high­est gross­ing open­ing week­end Nige­rian film in cin­e­mas while her lat­est ‘Okafor’s Law’ also had a suc­cess­ful run in Cin­e­mas.

Omoni’s works have fea­tured in sev­eral in­ter­na­tional film fes­ti­vals and have re­ceived recog­ni­tions far and wide. Wives on Strike: The Rev­o­lu­tion is set to hit cin­e­mas na­tion­wide on the 29th of De­cem­ber.
