Kemi Adetiba stunned the movie industry with the highly acclaimed Wedding Party and now, the movie director is all set to do it again with another blockbuster titled King of Boys.
Like Kemi’s feature film debut, The Wedding Party, most films with the big box office numbers in Nollywood in the past few years have been romantic drama, with very few or none, going the King of Boys route.
Dabbling its hands in scenes filled with intense dialogue, thought-provoking decisions by the main characters, and a portrayal of the lead protagonist in a way yet to be seen in Nigerian cinema, King of Boys follows the story of Eniola Salami (Sola Sobowale), a timid little girl, molested until she runs away from her parents’ toxic marriage, into the welcoming hands of a questionably enthused brothel owner.
Eniola does not find life easy as expected, in fact, as audiences would predict, she finds her ‘job’ as a local prostitute hard and difficult to do. As a baby prostitute, she is forced into a life of strive; she, however, uses her street-smartness to become a fearsome ruler of the Lagos underworld.
The movie also marks the acting debut of veteran hip-hop artist Reminisce who puts in a performance that will shock many. He, alongside Ill Bliss, shows impressive acting prowess, which brilliantly complements the other A-list cast.
King of Boys is currently in cinemas nationwide and stars the likes Jide Kosoko, Paul Sambo, Adesua Etomi, Toni Tones, Sharon Ooja, Ademola Adedoyin, Lanre Hasan (Iya Awero), Osas Ighodaro, Funlola Aofiyebi, Sani Mu’azu, Paul Sambo and many others.
