The founder of EbonyLife Media, producers of Chief Daddy 2, Mo Abudu, on Friday, acknowledged the disappointment expressed by critics over the newly released comedy movie.
In a post on her verified Instagram page, Mo Abudu told those who slammed the movie that their voices have been heard, adding that she is open to “constructive feedback” for her team to continuously improve on the quality of the movies released.
VANTAGE NEWS had earlier reported that criticisms greeted the release of Chief Daddy 2: Going for Broke on Netflix on New Year’s Day by movie-watchers.

Directed by Niyi Akinmolayan and produced by Mo Abudu, the movie is a sequel to the original Chief Daddy movie, which premiered in 2018.
The original film follows a disorganised group of immediate and extended family members as they struggle to claim a part of the wealth left behind by the rich daddy.
In the sequel, the struggle to claim this wealth continued but some observers described the sequel as repetitive, and incredibly predictable.
Despite its star-studded cast, including the rapper Falz and Nollywood heavyweights such as Nkem Owoh, Patience Ozokwor, Shaffy Bello, Funke Akindele-Bello and Joke Silva, majority of movie lovers believed it was below standard in terms of screenplay and direction.
Taking to her Instagram on Friday in a video post, however, Mo Abudu said, “As the CEO of the EbonyLife Group, I am aware of the mixed reactions to the release of Chief Daddy 2 on the 1st of January on Netflix. While some people enjoyed the film, others did not, and so I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our Chief Daddy fans that felt some disappointment with the sequel.
“Thank you so much for caring, and for sharing your concerns so passionately.
“Over the years, we have been the privileged recipients of your love and support of our productions – from Fifty, The Wedding Party, The Royal Hibiscus Hotel, Your Excellency, The Governor, Castle and Castle, Oloture and of course Chief Daddy 1 amongst others.

“We appreciate your constructive feedback. This way, my team and I can continuously improve ourselves so we can deliver the great quality productions you have come to expect from EbonyLife studios.
