Nollywood actress, Omoni Oboli, says she shot Wives on Strike: The Revolution because “domestic violence is on the rise”.
Premiered on December 23 at FilmHouse Cinema, Lekki, the movie is a sequel to 2016 Wives on Strike.
The first instalment, which grossed N71million at the cinema, treats the subject of child marriage.
Encouraged by the box office success of Wives on Strike, the 39-year-old actress, director and producer shot Wives on Strike: The Revolution in 2017.
Speaking with QedTV at the movie premiere, Omoni said: “I thought why not make another Wives on Strike movie but this time addressing domestic violence and the role of women in governance.”
Wives on Strike: The Revolution stars Omoni, Uche Jombo, Chioma Akpotha, Ufuoma McDermott, Kenneth Okonkwo, Julius Agwu and Kalu Ikeagwu from the first movie.
