Funke Akindele’s “A Tribe Called Judah” Dominates 2023 Box Office, Eyes Top Three Nollywood Spots

Funke Akindele’s latest film, ‘A Tribe Called Judah,’ has rapidly become the highest-grossing movie of 2023, amassing an impressive N400 million within its initial 12 days in theatres. The Nigerian box office, in a tweet on Tuesday, emphasized the film’s significant impact on audience engagement. Film One Entertainment on Instagram echoed this achievement, placing the movie among the top five highest-grossing Nigerian films of all time, alongside hits like ‘The Wedding Party 2’ and  ‘Omo Ghetto: The Saga.’

Notably, ‘A Tribe Called Judah’ has outpaced other notable titles, including ‘Merry Men 3,’ ‘Orisa,’ ‘Kesari,’ ‘The Kujus Again,’ and ‘Something Like Gold,’ solidifying Akindele’s standing as a formidable filmmaker. Released on December 15, 2023, the film’s success mirrors Akindele’s previous triumph with ‘Battle on Buka Street,’ which grossed N640 million over 9 weeks, securing the second-highest-grossing movie spot in 2022, and ‘Omo Ghetto: The Saga,’ claiming the top position.

Akindele’s remarkable achievements place her in the unique position of occupying the top three spots at the Nollywood box office, with ‘A Tribe Called Judah’ poised to become the third blockbuster in her cinematic legacy. This reaffirms Akindele’s ability to craft compelling narratives that resonate with audiences and contribute significantly to the Nigerian cinematic landscape.
