Actress Eniola Ajao Expresses joy as her first movie Ajakaju “Beast of Two Worlds” hits 16M in cinemas on first day

Nollywood actress Eniola Ajao has achieved a historic milestone with her debut movie “Ajakaju: Beasts of Two Worlds,” grossing a record-breaking 16 million Naira in cinemas on its first day.

The announcement was made by FilmOne Entertainment today, March 30, 2024, via its verified Instagram page.

The cinema release of “Ajakaju” occurred nationwide on Friday, March 29th, 2024, following the movie’s trending status online. The buzz intensified after Bobrisky was awarded Best Dressed Female at the movie premiere on Sunday, March 24th, and received a cash prize of N1 million.

However, this decision sparked controversy, with figures like Dayo Amusa and Portable expressing dissatisfaction and criticizing Bobrisky’s win. Femi Adebayo was also called out for endorsing Bobrisky as the winner.

The situation escalated, leading to a social media exchange between Portable and Bobrisky, prompting Eniola Ajao to intervene. Eniola clarified that Bobrisky’s award was a strategic move to promote the movie and apologized for any distress caused. She revealed that she invested over N200 million in the film, selling her assets to fund it.

In an emotional video, Eniola announced new winners for the Best Dressed Female category, Papaya Ex and Iyabo Ojo, who would each receive N1 million as a token of apology and appreciation.

FilmOne Entertainment confirmed the movie’s success, stating that “Ajakaju” grossed N16 million in cinemas within 24 hours of its premiere, making it the biggest opening day for a 2024 release.

Responding to this, Odunlade Adekola wrote;

“We think it’s time to change the Dictionary word for SUCCESS to FILMONE. . Thank Nigeria 🇳🇬 UNA TOO MUCH!!!!!! . #Ajakaju is still showing in cinemas Nationwide. Trust us when we say it’s worth the watch!!!.”
