AY’s gets recognised by Guinness World Records

Nigerian comedian AY’s produced his first movie called 30 Days in Atlanta which has now been recognized by Guinness World Records as the movie with the highest domestic gross in the territories of Bollywood, Nollywood and Hollywood.
The movie grossed 137, 200, 000 Naira (Approximately US$435,210) and it tells the story of Akpos (Ayo Makun – AY) who won a prize at an event which turned out to be a sponsored trip to Atlanta for 30 days. It captures Akpos’s tour of Atlanta accompanied by his brother, Richard (Ramsey Nouah).
It will be the first time in the history of the Nigerian film industry that a movie will be achieving such a tremendous success that will be registered by the Guinness World Records since it was first published in 1955
The elated AY posted on Instagram:

This is the first time ever that the Nigerian film industry which is one of the largest in the world, will be achieving such a tremendous success that will be registered by the 'Guinness World Records' since 1955 when it was first published. I am dedicating this milestone in my career to all the casts and crew of 30 Days In Atlanta. Also to everyone who went to the cinemas to see the movie when it came out. Let's do it again with my new movie 'A Trip to Jamaica' premiering on September 25th, and showing across cinemas in Nigeria from September 30th.
