The sequel to EbonyLife 2018 hit comedy film ‘Chief Daddy’ has been met with a wave of negative reactions on social media.
The movie’s sequel, produced by Mo Abudu, media entrepreneur, movie and TV producer is exclusive to Netflix, a global streaming platform.
It was released on Saturday and has since been receiving different reviews from movie lovers with more negative feedbacks.
Directed by Niyi Akinmolayan, the film follows a billionaire industrialist who dies after serving as a benefactor to an extended family of relatives, household staff, and mistresses.
The industrialist’s will, however, creates a crisis in his family.
The film features several top movie stars including Beverly Osu, Beverly Naya, Dakore Egbuson-Akande, Nedu Wazobia, Chigul, Falz, and Kate Henshaw-Nuttal.
Others are Rahama Sadau, Mawuli Gavor, Funke Akindele-Bello, Shaffy Bello, Zainab Balogun, Joke Silva, Linda Ejiofor, Broda Shaggi, Uzor Arukwe, and Rachel Oniga.
Majority of Nigerians faulted the movie’s quality and storyline, arguing that it was below their expectations.
“Disjointed, waste of funds, total waste of time N talents. Nollywood just proved that they can be bad on Netflix, Dstv N everywhere, no matter the budget,” a user wrote.
“Summary of chief daddy 2:
-Full of noise like, Oshodi, Balogun market
-No Lasman to enforce traffic 🚥 rules, everyone just dey act as you like
-The film does not belong to any category.. e.g comedy, action romance
-it look like waste of investment to me,” another user said.
“See how Nigeria is putting Chief Daddy 2 into trash can.. That’s how they dragged their music artistes for years before they get better.
“I’m reading reviews of Chief Daddy 2 and I’m in awe that people expected something different,” another user wrote.
“New Nollywood” since AY and co entered, has become a high budget extended-skit factory.
Old Nollywood – though lacking was much more authentic. Not these influenza driven characters,” one user wrote.
But a few other users disagreed, adding that the movie was okay.
“I actually enjoyed Chief Daddy 2,” a user wrote.
“Chief Daddy 2 is a like a secondary school production where the entire year had to get a speaking role, they don’t know what’s going on, it’s just vibes. And their confused parents are in the audience clapping because they think they’re children will be stars,” a user wrote.
“Chief daddy 2 has to be the worst Nigerian movie I have ever watched,” another user wrote.
A user added: “Chief Daddy 2 2022. This isn’t a review but I can’t believe they used Chief Daddy 2 to welcome y’all to 2022.
Another commenter Malam Mohammed Shuaibu even escalated his misgivings further by reporting producers of the film to Censors board.
“I have written an email to the Nigerian Film & Video Censors Board complaining about a character referring to Nigeria as “FANTASTICALLY CORRUPT” in Chief Daddy 2, a film made in Nigeria.
“If they don’t do anything about it, I will escalate the matter further”.
Ifeoluwa Aboyeji said: This Chief Daddy 2 is a comfortable 0/10.
