Here’s The 411 On Kemi Adetiba’s New Film, ‘King Of Boys’

Posted on

Following the incredible success of her directorial debut, The Wedding Party, which is one of the most successful films to come out of Nollywood, we’ve established a certain level of trust with Kemi Adetiba‘s work.

Her new film, King Of Boys, which premiered on Sunday, follows Alhaja Eniola Salami (Sola Sobowale), a businesswoman and philanthropist with a checkered past and a promising political future. She is a pillar of society — loved by many, feared by most, and truly known by a select few.

As her political ambitions see her outgrowing the underworld connections responsible for her considerable wealth, she’s drawn into a power struggle that threatens everything she holds dear. To come out of this on top, she will need her wits, as well as the loyalty of those closest to her.

Sobowale, who looks absolutely incredible in the trailer is joined by Adesua Etomi, Jide Kosoko, Demola Adedoyin, Remilekun “Reminisce” Safaru, Toni Tones, Ill Bliss, Sharon Oja and more.

Kemi Adetiba remains a badass boss lady who inspires and uplifts the rest of us females.

King Of Boys is set to hit theatres on October 26, and we can’t wait, but till then, watch the trailer!
