Something Like Gold has joined the list of the highest grossing Nollywood titles for 2023.
Produced by first-time cinema producer, Sandra Okunzuwa who also doubles as the lead, the movie follows the story of a lady who finds love again after being stood up at her wedding. It has now gone on to set a new record after it has dominated the Nigerian cinemas for nine weeks straight.

In third place on the chart is Bank Alert, which closed its first seven days at the Nigerian cinemas with a total of ₦12.1 million. Produced by comedian Okey Bakassi, the crime comedy feature was the most-watched Nollywood title at the cinemas during the same period.
