Pulse Review rates The Wedding Party 2 as a sequel that makes lightning strike twice. In the TWP 2, “the cast and crew simply come together to create a genuine feel-good entertainment. It’s distinct from its predecessor. It’s beautiful and warm on its own.”
“The Wedding Party 2” also tries to portray Nigeria and Nigerians in a good light, humorously displacing certain negative perceptions.
