In the first quarter of 2018, several Nollywood movies made it to the cinemas, however, few of them were true box office materials. One which stood out was the movie, ‘Seven And A Half Dates’ churned out by the producers of ‘The Ghost And The Tout,’ Samuel Olatunji and Toyin Abraham. The movie which was released on August 3, 2018, went ahead to rule the box office in its opening weekend, topped famous Hollywood movie, ‘Mission Impossible’ and consistently had sold out shows throughout most of its run in the cinemas. Right now, the movie remains one of the top 5 Nollywood movies to have hit cinemas this year.
To show his appreciation on behalf of the cast and crew, executive producer, Samuel Olatunji, said, “We couldn’t have achieved the feat of becoming one of the top 5 movies in 2018 so far without the help of each and every Nigerian who took time out to go to the cinemas with their friends and loved ones to see this movie with their hard earned money. It was indeed an incredible journey and I speak for both cast, crew and every other person who had a sweat in making this movie a success.” Speaking on whether there will be another work soon he said: “Absolutely. The last thing we want to do is to give Nigerians something as good as ‘Seven and a Half Dates’ and then fade out. We have several projects coming up and one of them will be announced really soon. We are working hard to try and top what we did in the last project and I believe we are definitely ticking all boxes with this one.” ‘Seven and a Half Dates’ features Mercy Johnson, Toyin Abraham, Jim Iyke, Sola Sobowale, Akin Lewis, Bayray McNwizu, Roxy Antak and more. It was directed by Biodun Stephen and produced by Toyin Abraham.
