Love, Lust, and Other Things’ success is a sign of the growing popularity of Nollywood films. The film has displaced heavy hitters like Indiana Jones And The Dial of Destiny and Transformers: Rise of The Beasts to take the top spot.
Another Nollywood film, Big Love, is also doing well at the box office. The film, directed by Biodun Stephen, has grossed ₦7 million since its release.
The success of these two films is a good indication that the Nigerian movie industry is on the rise. With more and more quality films being produced, it is likely that Nollywood will continue to grow in popularity in the years to come.
