Mosunmola Abudu, best known as Mo Abudu, a filmmaker and founder of EbonyLife Media, has recognized on Friday the displeasure voiced by critics over her recently released comedy film, Chief Daddy 2.
Mo Abudu assured viewers who blasted the film that their voices had been heard in a post on her verified Instagram profile, adding that she is open to “constructive feedback” which would enable her and her team to continue to enhance the quality of the films published.
The movie is a sequel to the original Chief Daddy movie, which was released in 2018. It was directed by Niyi Akinmolayan and produced by Mo Abudu.
The original movie depicts a motley crew of close and extended family members as they fight for a share of the fortune left by the iconic Chief Daddy.
The quest to claim this money continued in the sequel, however several critics characterized it as repetitious and very obvious.
Although the sequel had a fabulous star-studded cast, which includes Falz and Nollywood veterans Funke Akindele-Bello, and Joke Silva the overwhelming impression is that the sequel should have been better.
However, Mo Abudu took to her Instagram on Friday to say;
“As the CEO of the EbonyLife Group, I am aware of the mixed reactions to the release of Chief Daddy 2 on the 1st of January on Netflix. While some people enjoyed the film, others did not, and so I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our Chief Daddy fans that felt some disappointment with the sequel.
