The first movie was set in Abuja and followed the lives of four wealthy men known as the Merry Men, who seduced powerful women, got contracts from the political elite, stole from the rich, gave to the poor, and had affairs with the hottest women in town.

Merry Men: The Real Yoruba Demons grossed ₦235,628,358 at the box office and is one of the highest grossing Nollywood movies of all time.

The second instalment of the franchise sees the Merry Men pitted against a gang of not so fear-inspiring bike-riding, tank top and leather jacket-wearing assassins, who must help an indicted government official escape justice in exchange for their kidnapped loved ones.

Merry Men 2: Another Mission grossed ₦36.89 million in its opening weekend (December 20-22, 2019) and went on to earn a total of ₦234,505,169.
