The movie has enjoyed huge reception and success locally, topping box office sales in Nigeria.
Speaking about the UK release, Executive Producer – Biola Alabi said, “Looking at how much success Banana Island Ghost has had locally, and the clamour for it abroad, it only made sense for us to bring the movie to an eager audience here in the UK.”
