In its fifth weekend run, “A Tribe Called Judah” still sits atop the Nigerian box office charts, adding N60.4 million for a staggering N1.296 billion cume.


Despite experiencing the largest percentage drop among the top five films at -55%, a typical scenario for blockbusters in their later stages, the movie’s performance remains noteworthy.


In comparison, “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” witnessed a slightly smaller dip of -50%, contributing N25 million to its N467 million total earnings. Meanwhile, “Malaika” and “Ada Omo Daddy” followed suit with declines of -42% and -40%, adding N16.6 million and N10.2 million, respectively, to their tallies.


All indications point towards a N1.6 billion potential finish for the Funke Akindele-produced and directed film, though surpassing this mark would require significantly stronger legs to go past that. The entrance of the new release, “Mean Girls,” into cinemas might pose additional competition, potentially weakening an already shaky leg.


As of its fifth weekend, “A Tribe Called Judah” had sold over 346,000 tickets, nearing the current record held by “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” at 374,596 tickets.


This impressive feat comes just days after the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS) extended its congratulations to Funke Akindele for becoming Nigeria’s highest-grossing director.


Her directional achievement was marked by her film’s remarkable journey to the N1 billion milestone at the box office, setting a new precedent in the Nigerian film industry.
