Kemi Adetiba’s King of Boys was, unarguably, one of the biggest movies Nollywood gave us in the year 2018. The crime thriller came as a breath of fresh air, giving the countless half-baked slapstick comedies that preceded its arrival.
Though many moviegoers ended up unsatisfied with the movie’s resolution, I’m sure not many of those would have predicted there would be a King Of Boys 2. But, judging from this Instagram post by Kemi Adetiba, it seems the writer-director has other ideas.
This post left a lot of people guessing, wondering whether the producer was being serious or was only pulling a prank on them. A follow-up post put every doubt to rest as the producer confirmed that King Of Boys 2 is indeed coming and that it is in good hands.
KING OF BOYS follows the story of Alhaja Eniola Salami, 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 every ounce of the cunning, ruthlessness, and strategy that took her to the top, as well as the loyalty of those closest to her.
KING OF BOYS stars Sola Sobowale, Remilekun “Reminisce” Safaru, Adesua Etomi, Paul Sambo, illBLISS, Akin Lewis, Toni Tones, Demola Adedoyin, Osas Ajibade, Sharon Ooja, and Jide Kosoko. Written and directed by Kemi Adetiba.
From here on, we will keep our ears peeled for official announcements on the King Of Boys sequel.
