Filming of the sequel to Nollywood’s highest-grossing movie, The Wedding Party, in Dubai has ended and the movie is now in post-production. This was revealed by producers of the film in an email.

The Wedding Party 2: Destination Dubai, will have its Lagos premiere on December 10, with cinema release in time for the Christmas holidays.

“It has been a remarkable opportunity to film in Dubai,” said director of the movie, Niyi Akinmolayan.

“It was magical and the team was awesome. We are thrilled to create something special for viewers and we are sure that they will be impressed with the movie.”

What is left now is editing the footage, sound and special effects, before the film can be screened at its first festival.

Thanks to Dubai Tourism and a host of local partners, The Wedding Party 2 promises a visual delight of exotic locations of the ‘Jewel of the East.’

With the cast and crew at attractions, such as IMG Worlds of Adventure, Dubai Mall and desert-based restaurant Qasr Al Sultan, Atlantis The Palm, Palazzo Versace, Armani and Ghaya Grand hotels, Mo Abudu, Executive Producer for EbonyLife Films, was also delighted about being in Dubai.

“We had a really tough schedule, but we are happy to be moving to the next phase,” said Abudu.

“We are really grateful for the support we received from Dubai Tourism and everyone else in the destination who worked so hard to make it possible.”

The Wedding Party 2: Destination Dubai is a production of The ELFIKE Collective (EbonyLife Films, FilmOne Distribution, Inkblot Productions and Koga Studios).`
