List of highest-grossing Nigerian films

The following are the highest-grossing Nigerian films of all time in Nigerian cinemas. Revenues from special screenings, DVD sales, online streaming and theatrical screenings outside Nigeria are excluded from this gross total. Films before 2000s are also excluded from this list as their gross totals have not been inflation adjusted.



The new comers in 2017 include the much hyped wedding party 2 which was in the second position, wives on strike, alakada reloaded and omugwo.
