Odunlade Adekola’s Yoruba-style epic Orisa is almost at ₦100 million gross profits within three weeks since its debut.
Although it has maintained the fourth position on the domestic box office chart, it still ranks as the top leading local title in Nigerian cinema.
The newly released figures by the Cinema Exhibitors Association of Nigeria (CEAN), showed that Orisa recorded over ₦20 million between August 4, 2023, to August 10, 2023.
It opened with ₦40 million between July 21, 2023, to July 27, 2023, and between July 28, 2023, to August 3, 2023, it recorded another ₦28 million, which brings the total to over ₦88 million in just three weeks.
Orisa is still showing at all the cinemas nationwide and would most likely hit its ₦100 million gross within its first month at the cinema.
