The Nigerian film, Omo Ghetto (The Saga), produced by Funke Akindele-Bello, popularly known as Jenifa has been declared Nollywood’s highest-grossing movie of all time.

The 2020 comedy film has broken a four-year record formally held by Kemi Adetiba’s film, The Wedding Party.

In a statement released by the Cinema Exhibitors Association of Nigeria, Omo Ghetto The Saga has so far grossed N468,036,300 after holding the number one spot for its third week in a row.

Akindele-Bellos’ latest feat is probably the most shocking news in recent times, as it comes amidst the coronavirus pandemic that crippled the film industry for months.
