Loved by all, hated by none.
That is exactly how to introduce the award-winning movie of the year in 2019 and most likely the decade at the African Movie Academy Awards. This movie has become one of the most talked-about Nollywood films as it has had quite an impression on a lot of Nigerians and international watchers.
With a King of Boys sequel on its way, it is important to get the back story and all that’s in store, for you to be as excited as we are about this production.
Created by Kemi Adetiba, who also directed and produced The Wedding Party and the show, ‘King Women’ and has earned her the tag “Bruce Lee of Visuals in Nollywood”.
King of Boys is a Nigerian crime political-thriller that tells the story of Alhaja Eniola Salami a businesswoman and philanthropist with a promising political future. She is drawn into a struggle for power which in turn threatens everything around her as a result of her growing political ambitions.
To come out of this on top, she is caught up in a game of trust, not knowing whom really to look up to, and this leads to her ruthlessness. (Wikipedia)
