Nigerians and Love! Couple Of Days movie smashes Nigeria box-office records

We don’t hear of records being smashed every day in Nollywood.  So when it happens, it gets our attention, after 3 weeks in cinemas nationwide, information reaching us on Nollywood's trending movie "Couple of days" is that the movie has set a new box office record. Couple of days has achieved the highest ticket sales in one day - for any Nollywood movie in Cinema in February. 
 Confirmed Ticket sales on valentine day smashed the previous one day national ticket sales record and set a new record for the month of February.
This romantic drama has deeply connected with Nigerian Movie lovers with most married couples calling it out as the "boldest" and "best Nollywood movie" on the subject of relationships and marriage. 
 
Since the movie premier in Ibadan and all through the month of February, lovers  have trooped into Cinemas across Nigeria to enjoy the flick directed by Lord Tanner and featuring Nollywood rising stars like Adesua Etomi, Lilian Esoro, Enyinna Nwigwe, Kiki Omeili and Okey Uzoeshi.  Falz the Bahd Guy made his Nollywood debut alongside his love interest "Judi" played by Juliana Olayode (Jenifa's Diaries). Completing the cast is MBGN 2015 Unoaku Anyadike and October 1st Star - Demola Adedoyin.
Nationwide Ticket sales tracked by Filmone Nigeria, shows that in three weeks of its release the movie Couple of Days has smashed its way into the top 20 highest grossing  movies in Nigeria..
The photos below speak volumes on the movie's ability to connect with its audience as crowds and queues have been recorded across cinemas nationwide with sold out cinema halls . 
Produced by Ayo Orunmuyi - Couple of Days is definitely a must watch for Nollywood movies and a refreshing departure from the norm. The movie is still in cinemas through March. Its acceptance is  another strong indication that it will be in cinemas for more than a Couple of Days

Why is it talk talk only...how much did it gross? Hollywood writes their gross in $$$$ why won't Nollywood write their own gross in Naira? How can we even believe this is true? Linda ask them for me...please!

I watched this movie yesterday and a totally good movie was ruined at the end. The twist at the end was fake and unneccessary. Everyone left my movie hall angry and we were over 50. Watching movies in Naija is great though, the side comments and all the fun from people in the cinema hall is great. Glad to be back in my country

One of the best Nigerian films I've seen in a while! Went with 9 of my fam & friends and we all felt same, that hardly happens when we go to the cinema to watch film

Couple of Days was a breathe of fresh air (apologies to other Nigerian movies) the script is rich, realistic, entertaining and educating. "Ni ilu ibadan", makes you appreciate your local heritage. The characters had a brilliant connection and to think the movie was done in 4 days. Wow!!!! Kudos to the actors and the producer. You should watch it. It gives a deeper interpretation of what love is and how to choose forgiveness when you have a choice. I will watch the sequel (if it has) and it deserves to bag awards.

They can't mention amount because the movie didn't make any shot money...lol...its all publicity stunt to make us waste our money.

Blah blah blah....All publicity stunt. Why don't you mention the box office amount. It's all deceit to make us go waste our money. The movie is a failure!
