Read excerpts and watch interview below.

Enyinna Nwigwe – Nonso Onwuka

"I'm super nervous, super exited, super everything good. This kind of opens up a different side to the stuck up guy that was seen in the first part. This shows more of his romantic  and vulnerable side.

 

Ikechukwu – Sola

"I feel completely blessed because not only did the previous cast come through this time, but we have added flavour to it."

AY Makun – MC

"I played myself as the MC for the wedding reception. It was fun doing it, and it doubled as a holiday trip for me. So that made it more fun."

 

Adesua Etomi – Dunni

"I wasn't nervous. I was more excited than anything else. As long as the Nigerian crowd is happy – that's what we were aiming to achieve, and I hope that we have achieved that.

Niyi Akinmolayan – Director

"They love it because it's very original, they can relate with some of the things in it. For Nollywood, people appreciate it when we take bits and pieces of our culture and we scale it up.

It's important that when you're putting a film on the big screen, you need to think of scale. And when you're scaling up things that people are already proud of, and you're being original, it's only natural that people will love it.

A sequel to the highest grossing Nollywood movie of same title, "The Wedding Party 2" debuts in cinemas on December 15, 2017.
