3. Christmas is Coming
The producers of Christmas is coming are avoiding the already crowded December release date (Omoni has Wives on Strike: The Revolution and Ebony Life has The Wedding Party 2).

This looks like a comedy and hopefully we laugh enough on the 24th of November, which is the release date for Christmas is Coming.

The comedy movie is a collaboraton between Rok Studios and Watts Camera Action. It is produced and directed by Muyiwa Aluko.
