The sequel to ‘Chief Daddy’, a 2018 comedy-drama produced by Mo Abudu, has sparked a wave of negative reactions on social media.
The movie’s sequel, produced by Abudu in collaboration with Netflix, was released exclusively on the streaming platform on Saturday.
Directed by Niyi Akinmolayan, the film follows a billionaire industrialist who dies after serving as a benefactor to an extended family of relatives, household staff, and mistresses.
The industrialist’s will, however, creates a saga amongst his families.
The film features several top movie stars including Beverly Osu, Beverly Naya, Dakore Egbuson-Akande, Nedu Wazobia, Chigul, Falz, and Kate Henshaw-Nuttal.
Others are Rahama Sadau, Mawuli Gavor, Funke Akindele-Bello, Shaffy Bello, Zainab Balogun, Joke Silva, Linda Ejiofor, Broda Shaggi, Uzor Arukwe, and Rachel Oniga.
Since the movie was released on Netflix, there has been a frenzy of negative feedback on social media.
Majority of Nigerians faulted the movie’s quality and storyline, arguing that it was below their expectations.
“Chief Daddy 2 is a like a secondary school production where the entire year had to get a speaking role, they don’t know what’s going on, it’s just vibes. And their confused parents are in the audience clapping because they think they’re children will be stars,” a user wrote.
“Chief daddy 2 has to be the worst Nigerian movie I have ever watched,” another user wrote.
A user added: “Chief Daddy 2 2022. This isn’t a review but I can’t believe they used Chief Daddy 2 to welcome y’all to 2022..
“Disjointed, waste of funds, total waste of time N talents.
“Nollywood just proved that they can be bad on Netflix, Dstv N everywhere, no matter the budget.”
But a few other users disagreed, adding that the movie was okay.
“I actually enjoyed Chief Daddy 2,” a user wrote.
Here’s what Nigerians had to say:
Chief Daddy 2 2022
This isn't a review but I can't believe they used Chief Daddy 2 to welcome y'all to 2022..
Disjointed, waste of funds, total waste of time N talents.Advertisement

So none of the actors in Chief Daddy 2 could take a pause to say “kini gbogbo kati kati that we are doing?”
Mo needs to know that the wedding party charm has worn off and she needs to hire actual writers

I’m back to talk about Chief Daddy 2 because I feel like we’re being taken advantage of, like we’re Nigerians and we must accept nonsense.
All those amazing talents in the movie and they accepted to do the film? Why? Why did Funke Akindele, Kate Henshaw, FALZ, JOKE SILVA,

Chief Daddy 2 was all over the place.
They tried to tell many stories that were incomplete, incoherent and somewhat unconnected.
Seems like there was no storyline. It was not intriguing and not funny at all.
A solid 2.5/10 (because, at least, the picture was good)

In a lot of ways, some of the plots in Chief Daddy 2 is just weird. It's like a movie written a group of kindergarten children.
Way too many Talents for the movie to lack so much salt. But if you have seen Chief Daddy 1 you can sit through Chief Daddy 2. Happy New Year.

Chief daddy 2, an abomination that should never have happened 🤦🏾♀️

Nolly wood should understand that it's not every movie that needs continuation, just end it at one abeg.
Kos I don't understand what happened at Chief Daddy 2.
Shooting Part 2 was unnecessary 😩
— Kingston of Abuja (@Kingston_eze) January 2, 2022
What I don’t understand is how the makers of Chief Daddy 2 got to convince these many stars to take part in this cringeworthy movie. The only explanation has to be that they didn’t read the script or were paid damn too much to look past this mockery of their career. Haba!

The worst part about Chief Daddy 2 was:-
I genuinely cannot decide but I’m going to find time and talk about how terrible each scene was. Mo Abudu you fall hand!!!!!

I just watched Chief Daddy Part 2 on Netflix.
What was all that now? Ahn ahn.
This is not fair sha, making people go through that! It’s not fair. I had to watch till the end to see if there’s a redeemable quality to the movie… THERE WAS NONE.
