On Sunday, January 1, Ebony Live Media Group debuted the sequel of their 2018 star-studded comedy “Chief Daddy.” The film, titled “Chief Daddy 2: Going for Broke” premiered on Netflix, and drew scathing reviews from media and fans who had come to expect more from the production company.
Although “Chief Daddy,” the prequel did produce polarising reviews from viewers following its theatrical release, it remains one of the most commercially Nigerian films of all time, but many agree the sequel fell short of little standard set in the original film.
The criticisms prompted Ebony Life CEO, Mo Abudu to respond to the scathing reviews, reminding fans of the production house that they have been one of the most consistent studios in Nigeria, with the likes of “Wedding Party 1&2,” “The Royal Hibiscus Hotel,” “Oloture,” and more among their portfolios.
Abudu stressed that constructive criticisms of their projects are welcome, but urged fans to desist from trolling or insulting herself or anyone associated with the studio. She further pleaded with fans to not lose faith in the studio’s capability to produce quality films and TV shows, adding that they have lots of projects in the works.
