A few hours ago, Omoni Oboli released the Wives on Strike: The Revolution trailer on YouTube and it was everything I hoped for. If you thought the prequel was funny, you are going to laugh your heart out on December 29 when The Revolution starts showing in cinemas nationwide.
The Wives are back and no more jangolover!
On Wives on strike, the movement was as a result of child marriage but from what we saw on the Wives on Strike: The Revolution trailer, the movement is now as a result of domestic violence. Just as in Omoye.
Watch the hilarious trailer below
Odunlade Adekola, who played the role of a wife beater in Celebrity Marriage is doing the same here. I am eager to watch him and fellow new casts’ – Sola Sobowale, Oyetoro Hafiz, Chigurl, Titobiloluwa Segun-Banjo and Toyin Abraham – performances.
Especially Toyin, Hafiz, and Sola, who spiced the trailer.
Returning cast includes Omoni Oboli, Kenneth Okonkwo, Uche Jumbo, Chioma Akpotha, Emeka Oke and Julius Agwu.
Read the official synopsis below:
“Our favourite local market women team up again to solve another problem. Domestic violence hit close to home and the women must engage the government or become the government. The situation, it seems, is impossible to ignore. Twists, drama, frustrations, and schemes make this tug of war a hilarious revolution. Will the society survive another Wives on Strike episode?”
There are a few things I do not get though. What happened to the original Baba Amina? Udoka Oyeka, who played Baba Amina in the prequel, has been replaced by Sani Danja.
Another thing I do not get from the Wives on Strike: The Revolution trailer is the reason the women ran from the country. I am guessing I will not know until December 29.
What do you think of the trailer? Let me know in the comment section below.
