Banky W and Adesua Etomi are engaged, and "The Wedding Party " sequel  has a lot to gain from it.

For a film industry still struggling to convince its customers into cinema halls, it gets quite tricky striking a balance between marketing and keeping major story surprises.

Yesterday, May 2, 2017, I came across a photo of Banky W and Adesua Etomi on the set of the upcoming sequel, rocking a baby bump as Mr and Mrs Dozie.

I thought it was too much information and the ELFIKE Film Collective should hit the brakes on making big reveals too soon.

With the recently released set of BTS photos and a detailed synopsis, I feel like I already know what the movie is all about.

On a second thought, if the ELFIKE Film Collective are revealing some of these spoilers this early, it probably means that they don't consider them such big spoilers and there are still plenty of surprises for viewers at the end of the day.

The reveals came off as trying too hard to woo fans into theatres. Good thing for the movie, it no longer has to try too hard; it already has just the publicity it needs.

Today, May 3, 2017, Banky W and Adesua Etomi announced their engagement on Instagram, thus taking the publicity for the already anticipated sequel to another level.

When I heard about the engagement, I took a quick trip to YouTube to watch the "Made For You" music video which features the duo. I logged into Netflix for a re-watch of the highest grossing Nollywood movie, just so I could feel their chemistry together.

Following this announcement, two things are bound to happen, fans of "The Wedding Party" will watch the movie again (shame it's no longer in the cinemas or available on any Nigerian platform) but, there's Netflix. In search of the chemistry between the two characters, fans will replay the trailer.

In anticipation of the chemistry that should exist between real life couples in a movie, fans will troop into the cinema to watch this upcoming sequel.

Etomi is one of Nollywood's most talented actresses while Banky W is one of the most eligible bachelors in the Nigerian entertainment industry.

These two talented and celebrated personalities found themselves leading the cast of the highest grossing Nollywood movie ever and winning the love of most Nigerian film lovers.

For several reasons, Nigerians are interested in the relationship between these two, and this interest will extend to the upcoming sequel.

The success of "The Wedding Party 2" has always been guaranteed all thanks to the forceful marketing techniques of the producers and the movie's classy cast, but, a real wedding party between Banky W and Etomi is all that is needed for a blockbuster.

"The Wedding Party 2" isn't about Dunni and Dozie, but the confirmation of a relationship between Adesua and Banky W has made the movie about them.
