the highest grossing nollywood movies of 2021 ranked on earnings per day

Based on data provided by Wikipedia, we have ranked the highest grossing Nollywood movies of 2021 according to how much they’ve raked in per day. Majority of the titles in our list are also the most critically acclaimed Nigerian movies of 2021.

The highest grossing Nollywood movie of 2021 so far is, Toyin Abraham’s The Ghost and The Tout Too. The Ama Psalmist directed sequel has raked in over N130 million since its June 11 premiere.

It is followed by the dark comedy My Village People. Starring Bovi Ugboma, Theresa Edem etc, the film broke the record for the quickest Nigerian theatrical debut to reach a N100 million. But it has now been bested by The Ghost and The Tout Too by over N30 million even though they both made their debuts on the same day.

Nonetheless, Soole has the highest earning per day of all Nigerian movies released in 2021, raking in over N25 million in about 12 days. However, those numbers are skewed because of the number of day it’s been running, as most movies tend to score the most earnings in the first few days/weeks of opening.

Below are highest grossing Nollywood movies that opened from January 1 – December 7 2021, ranked according to how much money they’ve been earning on a daily basis.
