An example is the case of the senator’s infidelity and the talk of surrogacy. Some scenes also needed to have been made more believable.

Trying to fit a lot of message into one movie without losing direction is not an easy feat. And this did not go well for this movie. As it at some looked like each subplot was grasping for threads to sew the story together.  We see domestic violence, child bride marriage, surrogacy, political empowerment of women etc.

But this movie speaks up for relevant issues in our society using good acting and humor to tell its story. Wive On Strike 2 features Kenneth Okonkwo, Elvina Ibru, Odunlade Adekola, Sola Sobowale, Toyin Aimakhu, Julius Agu, Chioma Chukwuka, Uche Jombo, Ufuoma McDermot, Omoni Oboli.
