“All I can say is thank God’ Toyin Abraham sheds tears of joy as she beats previous record

Nollywood actress Toyin Abraham Ajeyemi is rejoicing over the remarkable success of her recent film, “Malaika,” which has achieved a significant milestone.

Via her Instagram page, the movie star announced that “Malaika” has surpassed the impressive mark of 300 million Naira in box office earnings since its cinema release. This achievement has elevated the movie to become her highest-grossing film to date and the 9th highest-grossing Nigerian film of all time. Previously, “Ijakumo,” released in 2022, held the record with a gross of N270 million, while “The Ghost and The Tout” grossed N134 million.

An elated Toyin expressed her gratitude to God and everyone who has supported “Malaika” since its release.

“Thank you GOD and thank you to everyone who has seen Malaika. Malaika is now the 9th highest-grossing Nigerian film of all time. Malaikathemovie is still showing in all cinemas.”

This is coming just a week after Toyin had taken a huge step against piracy as she paraded 5 of those trying to sell out her movie, Malaika, which is currently streaming in cinemas nationwide.

During a press conference, the mother of one revealed how she was hinted at the rampant piracy move, which made her frequent visitation at the hospital and also gave her panic attacks.

About the actions taken to curb the spread of the malicious link, the actress disclosed that the links were destroyed and 5 suspects have been arrested regarding the issue.

Just a few days back, Toyin had blocked an influencer for comparing her with Funke Akindele.

An X influencer, Adetutu Balogun irked the actress when she mockingly compared her victory at the box office with Funke Akindele and Mercy Aigbe’s victory, stating that Funke will forever be the boss.

Following this Toyin had clicked the block button on her and she had lamented over it.

To add to it, Toyin Abraham had allegedly parted ways with her protege, Abike Shuga, who was the main cast of Malaika.
