Despite the piracy leak of Toyin Abraham’s movie Malaika, it maintained the third spot on the charts this week, with a seven-day gross of ₦24.5 million. The family drama has spent four weeks at the Nigerian cinemas and currently has a total of ₦272,353,324.

In fourth place is Ada Omo Daddy by Mercy Aigbe, which records a seven-day gross of ₦14.7 million and a total of ₦200,834,172.
