“The Wedding Party” is a story on the shenanigans that go on during the planning of a wedding in Nigeria. Between matchmaking attempts on the bridal train, a wedding planner on a mission to succeed, the unruly behaviour of some ‘village’ guests. It centres on Dozie and Dunni’s wedding. Dunnin’s uncertainty about her new husband’s faithfulness during the time of their courtship, amidst colourful aso-ebi, eclectic music, small chops, and souvenir drama, we begin to wonder whether Dunni and Dozie will get through their wedding reception unscathed.
