Omoni Oboli, the Nigerian actress and producer who won the award for Best Actress – Narrative Feature at the Los Angeles Movie Awards, and the award for Best Actress at the Harlem International Film Festival tells a different tale. She claims her latest movie, Wives on Strike raked in over 228 Million Naira in Cinema rights alone.

She led the pack with cumulative returns of over N168 000 000 at the cinema box office. With the recent cinema runs of her latest work, Wives on Strike, after about a month, Omoni has further increased her lead over the nearest actor by a wider margin.
Her cumulative returns now stand at over N228,000,000 from the cinemas, making her the overall number one box office queen” “The success of Wives on Strike is made possible by over 70,000 people so far!
