Premiering on December 10, ‘A Tribe Called Judah’ officially hit cinema screens on Friday, December 15, 2023, standing out among concurrent releases like ‘Ada Omo Daddy’ and others in the Nollywood lineup..

The film unfolds a compelling narrative, depicting the story of a family of boys orchestrating a daring mall heist with their mother’s assistance, only to face an unexpected confrontation by armed robbers.

Directed by Adeoluwa Owu, the film boasts a stellar cast featuring industry luminaries such as Boma Akpore, Ebele Okaro-Onyiuke, Etinosa Idemudia, Fathia Balogun, Funke Akindele, Jide Kene Achufusi, Nse Ikpe Etim, Olayode Juliana, and more.

Additionally, the Nigerian box office highlights the commendable performance of Mercy Aigbe’s ‘Ada Omo Daddy,’ which has generated “over N18.5M inclusive of Thursday advanced previews.”

Directed by Adebayo Tijani and Akay Mason, the film premiered on the same day as Funke Akindele’s latest creation.

Approximately a year ago, Funke Akindele captured the industry’s attention with ‘Battle on Buka Street,’ which, after an impressive four-month theatrical run, accumulated a gross total of N668,423,056 at the box office.

This marked a significant milestone as the highest-grossing Nigerian film of all time, surpassing Akindele’s debut theatrical movie, ‘Omo Ghetto: The Saga,’ which previously held the record at N636,129,120.

In a further testament to its global appeal, FilmOne Entertainment, a prominent movie production and distribution platform, revealed in January that ‘Battle on Buka Street’ had grossed over $61,000 in cinemas across the United States.

The successful distribution in the U.S. was made possible through FilmOne’s collaboration with Part Two Media, receiving substantial support from Amplify Africa.
