Brotherhood Nigerian Movie 2022: All you need to Know
Here is all you need to know about Brotherhood Nigerian Movie showing in cinemas with a run date of Friday, September 23, 2022.
About Brotherhood Movie
Brotherhood Nigerian Movie centers on two twin brothers- Wale (Character played by Falz; Folarin Falana) and Akin (Character played by Tobi Bakre). These brothers became orphans at a young age when their parents were killed on New Year’s Day.
Their parents were making their way home from the traditional crossover service that had been held in church.
Since they are now orphans, Brotherhood Nigerian Movie sees Wale and Akin on the streets of Lagos, with the sole purpose of survival.
They would later make a life for themselves, but it appears it may not be a really great one for one of them. In Brotherhood movie, Wale (Character played by Falz) joins the police force while Akin (Character played by Tobi Bakre) becomes a hardened criminal who joins a gang of robbers.
Things go awry when Wale is put on the task force that would hunt his brother and the gang of robbers down.
This is where the title of Brotherhood movie comes from. The bond between both brothers is tested as they have to go against each other.

The Director of Brotherhood Nigerian movie is Loukman Ali. Loukman Ali is an Ugandan filmmaker who is making his Nigerian Directorial Debut with Brotherhood movie.
Loukman Ali has a couple of films he has directed inclusive of: The Girl in the Yellow Jumper, The Blind Date and The Bad Mexican..
I’m elated to be making Brotherhood and working with Jade Osiberu who’s proven to be one of the most audacious filmmakers on the continent. I hope this film opens up doors for more partnerships between African filmmakers.
This is the beginning of many firsts for African cinema. We are taking risks and hope to excel. The Nigerian audience and Africans at large should expect a Nollywood high stakes crime-action thriller like never before.
However, it appears Loukman Ali would not be taking credit as the Director of Brotherhood Nigerian Film as he departed the filming due to “creative differences” with Greoh studios- the production studio for the movie.
Brotherhood movie is produced by Jade Osiberu who also wrote the film alongside Abdul Tijani Ahmed.
The movie premiered in 12 Countries: Cameroon, Nigeria, Benin Republic, Congo, Rwanda, Gabon, Guinea, Niger Republic, Senegal, Cameroon, and Burkina Faso.
Box Office Projections
Brotherhood Nigerian Movie, according to Jade Osiberu- the writer, is projected to hit a Billion Naira (#1B) at the box office. But this may not be entirely accurate.
Based on projections, Brotherhood movie may not exceed the #400M mark. The reasons are not far-fetched.
The storyline is awfully reminiscent of Funke Akindele’s Omo Ghetto The Saga and its prequel- Omo Ghetto.
Despite the abundance of action, costume and Funke Akindele’s popularity, the movie had a box office domestic gross of about #750M, and this was even because it was released around a festive period like Christmas.
Now, Brotherhood 2022 Movie is definitely an action movie that looks like a lot of work, choreography an talented actors have been put in it, but it appears the storyline is not original enough to make it push a whole #1B at the domestic box office.
Even Kemi Adetiba’s King of Boys, with its sheer originality and action, grossed #300M. Although the argument was that it was three hours long.
Still, the argument stands that Brotherhood 2022 Nigerian movie that does appear to make a whooping #1B at the Nigerian Box office.
If what Jade Osiberu means is that Brotherhood 2022 Movie will gross a total of #1B internationally and nationally. She may not be wrong since the movie premiered in 15 countries. But in Nigeria alone?
But then again, who can tell? We’ll be here to report if it does.
