It is unlikely that it beats King of Thieves to become The Highest Grossing 2022 Nollywood movie but it will definitely rank number two and gross in 9 figure millions (i.e.) above hundred million naira.

Although The first Set Up grossed #53M and is now the 47th Highest Grossing Nollywood movie. Hopefully, The Set Up 2 movie can definitely beat it.

Based on Storyline, it promises to be great, but the action and stunts promise to be greater and offer the spice of the movie
