Ajosepo” Hit ₦50.4M in 5 Days, Takes Number #1 Ranking Cinema

Kayode Kasum’s latest Nollywood hit, “Ajosepo,” directed by Kayode Kasum, has stormed the box office, pulling in an impressive ₦50.4 million within its first five days. Starring Mike Afolarin, Timini Egbuson, Tomike Adeoye, Yemi Solade, and Ronke Oshodi Oke, the film has captured audience attention and sparked widespread discussion, according to a recent post by Shockng on X on Tuesday, April 16, 2024.

This remarkable achievement follows the triumph of another captivating Yoruba epic film, “Beast of Two Worlds.” According to data released by the Cinema Exhibitors Association of Nigeria (CEAN) on Thursday, April 4, 2024, the film amassed an impressive ₦63.2 million during its opening weekend. This figure outshone the weekend earnings of the Hollywood blockbuster “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire,” which stood at ₦49.3 million.

Nollywood’s indigenous epics are becoming increasingly popular, which have all captured viewers’ attention and produced impressive box office results.

Ajosepo is a story that delves into the lives of Dapo played by Afolarin and Tani played by Adeoye, a young couple preparing for their wedding. As their families gather in a luxurious hotel, festivities soon give way to turmoil as long-held secrets, family tensions, and unexpected revelations threaten to tear them apart.

It would be interesting to watch how Ajosepo does on the charts in the upcoming weeks given how much it is dominating cinemas.
