#MondayMovieMadness: 9 Nollywood Films Currently Showing In Cinemas!

Bachelor’s Eve made it’s cinema debut last week on the 16th of February, but sadly it isn’t showing in too many cinemas. Perhaps this would improve over time. Ishaya Bako’s Royal Hibiscus Hotel still maintains its standing from last week, showing in most cinemas across the country. Toyin Abraham and Uche Jombo are also among actresses starring in more than one box-office feature this week. Disguise, SideChic Gang, and Wetin Women Want are expected in cinemas soon, and while our fingers remained crossed in anticipation, check out these 9 films currently showing near you:
