The Wedding Party, a romantic comedy film produced by the University of Westminster alumnus Don Omope who graduated from the Television Production BA Honours course in 2006, grossed $1m in three weeks since its opening and became the highest grossing film in Nigeria.

The film was selected as one of the opening films of the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival, and was subsequently acquired by Netflix for non-theatrical distribution.

The Wedding Party is a loose re-imagining of the Hollywood smash hit My Big Fat Greek Wedding and is set around the dramas surrounding typical Nigerian weddings. It is Don’s third film following his 2015 classic Taxi Driver, and his debut film Lunch Time Heroes.

During his time at the University of Westminster Don set up and ran the first ever weekly television show for students by students called Streetz which ran for two years at the Westminster School of Media, Arts and Design.
