Lagos - Comedian and actor AY Makun believes that the recession in Nigeria has no effect on his 2016 movie ‘A Trip To Jamaica’ that has already grossed over N80 million, reports Pulse.ng
The award-winning filmmaker said in an interview.
“Recession has got nothing on the movie, trust me. As a matter of fact, I think it’s God, I always tell people that I’m a product of grace, I don’t act like I’m the best, I don’t come out like I produce the very best of movies but somehow I just experience grace which is also interwoven with solid hard work.” He said.
The movie has surpassed Omoni Oboli's "Wives on Strike" which grossed over 67 million Naira to become the highest grossing Nollywood movie of 2016.
