She’s BACK! Jenifa returns to the Big Screen – Watch the Trailer for “The Return of Jenifa”



She is one of the most beloved and recognized characters in Nigerian movie history. The character that introduced as to so many catch phrases – “as in“, “you know” – Jenifa is BACK!
The “Making Of” the new Jenifa movie has been floating around the internet for some weeks, but now we get to see the official trailer of this eagerly anticipated new movie.

The Return of Jenifa” features cameo appearances by Nigerian stars including Banky W, eLDee, Sasha, Rukky Sanda, Denrele and Omawumi. The movie which follows Jenifa’s quest for stardom was produced by Funke Akindele, directed by Muhydeen S Ayinde and “powered by” Olasco Films. “The Return of Jenifa” will be released in 2011.

We are glad to have Jenifa back on our screens. Though some things such as Jenifa’s wisecracks and crazy actions remain the same, we are glad to see the movie move beyond the campus environment to the entertainment industry. We can only imagine what hilarity will ensue this time.

Check out the trailer below:

      How come there is even a part 2: didn’t she catch AIDS or something like that in part 1? Abi did she go for deliverance to cure the HIV?

      February 18, 2011 at 6:31 am

      the fact she has AIDS doesn’t mean there can’t be a part 2 and that she is still not alive..

    So i guess i was the only NOn Nigerian who watched this movie from beginning to end and understood every line – with the help of the subtitles. The subtitles was not very good but c’mon i was not that bad, and if you speak 3 languages like i do – any other language comes easy if you put your mind to it. I mean Funke acts so well its hard to say you dont understand her mannerisms and acttions. I have watched this movie so many times i can even rattle the yoruba lines easily. My favourite part was when she went to invite her friend Tessy to her Baffday Parrry (as she states) and met BabaT and trying to have a chat with BaBaT – BaBa Ts face looking at Jenifa was priceless – i can never get enough of that scene i swear – I love thi move and cant wait for the return. I love when she saids Mo fe se Gets togeda, InFITE (as in invite), and singing 9ice song Photocopy – Sepe for Life, All Blue – Blue for Life – Ouch. You know what i think Funke should have marketed this movie more and even made tshirts out of those famous phrases like Ouch, Mofe say get to gerra, Gbo Gbo Big GIrls – We africans dont know how to milk and market on opportunities. See who Kate and Will are not married yet but see the stuff ont them being sold on tshirts cups etc. She messed up big time. I would definately have bought tshirt with GboGbo Big GIrlz on it lol

    Reading some of the comments i can tell am not the only one who has not watched the 1st installment. Ok but from the looks of the reviews i can tell it was great, am interest level heightened especially as there are not alot of female comedic characters in African/Nigerian movies or none i have seen yet..looking forward to seeing both soon
