“Chief Daddy 2” on Netflix: Plot, Release date, Cast, Trailer
Netflix has acquired the second part of “Chief Daddy” which was first originally released to cinemas in December 2018 to critical acclaim. It grossed #387M and is currently the 4th highest grossing Nollywood movie. Chief Daddy was also the highest grossing Nollywood movie of 2018.
The first edition of the movie saw the death of a very rich man- Chief Beecroft. Who, after his death, several new wives and children showed up to claim he is their father/husband.
This rancor led to so much conflict at his funeral party. Unfortunately, the billions his family was looking to inherit could not be cleared immediately because his company was involved in a process that held the money up.
Now, while “Chief Daddy 2” which will rather be released on Netflix, is a continuation of the first edition- “Chief Daddy”, it will have a different plot to the latter.
The second part of Chief Daddy to be released on Netflix is titled “Chief Daddy 2: Going for broke”

At the end of Chief Daddy 1, a woman shows up which may or may not be another of Chief Daddy’s wife. In Chief Daddy 2, the woman is a Majority Shareholder in Chief Daddy’s company. The Beecroft family are angered by the news. But that is not even the major problem.
Rumors start flying everywhere that the Beecroft Family are very broke. Unfortunately, those rumors are true.
The money and inheritance Chief Daddy left them has not cleared and the company’s IPO is near. Something has to be done quickly to make that dream happen.
Mrs. Beecroft- (character played by Joke Silva) wants them to come together and hatch a plan to get their inheritance and money. Chief Daddy’s sister- Aunty Ajoke (Character played by Rachel Oniga) disagrees because not only does she hate Mrs. Beecroft, she claims she didn’t welcome them into the family upon their arrival.

Mrs. Beecroft is even more annoyed because her birthday is near and though Shoffa Donatus (character played Nkem Owoh) and Madam Pat (Patience Ozwokor) try to plan the party, there is no money to plan it
It is only very reasonable that some sub-plots are created in Chief Daddy 2 because the original plot may not be enough to sustain the duration of the movie. In one of the subplots, we have a continuation of the events in Chief Daddy 1:

Adaora (character played by Beverly Naya) is now in a relationship with Damilare (Character played by Mawuli Gavor) who is Chief Daddy’s first son. Damilare is a footballer and a fan kisses him. This sparks insecurity emotions in Adaora and she contemplates the trust in the relationship.
On the other hand, Femi Beecroft (Character played by Falz the Bahd Guy) sees that he needs to do something about his Music Career which had always made people term him as “Untalented” after someone told him to get out of the studio. His “vibrant” solution –which he got from a popular artiste, is to go on a Dubai trip to enhance his music career.
He goes alongside Chief Daddy’s adopted daughter Justina (Character played by Ihuoma Ejiofor) and his girlfriend Sandra (Character played by Beverly Osu)
As the Beecroft’s family battle with their different worries, something must be done quickly to stop rumors about them, to get their money and inheritance out. But this solely rests on one thing- Unity, which seems to be something they find hard to relate to due to their many differences and disputes.
Major additions made to the cast include: Broda Shaggi and Uzor Arukwe
