Omoni Oboli’s “Wives on Strike” which premiered on April 8, 2016 in Nigeria, is set for Ghana. The movie which grossed over 15 million Naira in just three days and 51 million Naira in 17 days, will start showing in Ghana from May 13, 2016, at Silverbird Cinema, Accra.
On May 5, 2016, it was revealed that the movie has made 60 Million Naira, surpassing “The Barber’s Shop,” “Jungle Book” and “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” in Nigerian Box Office. Speaking on the great success of the film, Oboli said, “I am full of gratitude. People have shown me so much love. The record is humbling. I am grateful.”
“Wives on Strike” features Uche Jombo, Chioma Akpotha, Ufuoma Mcdermott, Kehinde Bankole, Kalu Ikeagwu, Julius Agwu, Kenneth Okonkwo among others.
The movie is a hilarious comedy about 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 interpret their roles, set a series of events in motion to give the movie many moments of laughter without missing a beat on the reason for everyone to know why they are on strike
