During an exclusive interview with Pulse Nigeria, Banky W and Adesua Etomi who play Dozie and Dunni in the romantic comedy "The Wedding Party" spoke about the movie, what viewers can expect and what makes the movie special.
On what makes the project different, AMVCA award winner, Adesua Etomi said, "What I try not to do first of all is to compare my projects. I love every project that I am."
"But, I think what’s beautiful about "The Wedding Party" is the fact that even though it is made for Nigerians and it talks about a Nigerian wedding, anyone can identify with "The Wedding Party."
"It cuts across different nations, and it was evident when we took it to the Toronto International Film Festival. Even those who were not Nigerian could identify with the story."
Sharing what viewers should expect from the movie, Banky W said, "expect a fantastic film. A very enjoyable film.
"A very fun film. You will see comedy, you will see romance, you will see fun, you will see pretty much everything that you can imagine under the sun in terms of chaos, fun, comedy, good times and bad times."
