 “I was at Silverbird Cinema, Ikeja all day and I was surprised at the reception from fans all over,” said the actress in a statement released to the press, including AML. “People, in large numbers, were trooping in to see Alakada Reloaded, it was honestly beyond my imagination. The tickets for the 12:55 pm show which was the first show, were sold out by 12noon, with so many people still waiting. I feel so loved and blessed. I am grateful to God for His blessings and my fans for their love and support. In just one cinema, we sold out 10 halls, we also had sold out all in other cinemas; I have got the best fans. It’s so exciting and I want this to continue for as long as possible.”

The movie is currently showing at various cinemas in Lagos, Kano, Warri, Ilorin, Warri, Owerri, Port Harcourt, Abuja, Asaba, Calabar, Ibadan, and Akure.  Alakada tells the story of Yetunde Animashaun, a young girl from a poor family background who as a result of her inferiority complex, lies about her financial and social status in order to fit in.
