The official teaser released a few weeks back welcomes fans to the website, there is also a synopsis to stop all the guessing.
The website gives us this:
“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. But who can she really trust?”
Sola Sobowale, Remilekun “Reminisce” Safaru, Adesua Etomi, Paul Sambo, illBLISS, Akin Lewis, Toni Tones, Demola Adedoyin, Osas Ajibade, Sharon Ooja, and Jide Kosoko.
This is Kemi’s second feature film. The first was box office record setting “The Wedding Party”. Kemi has also directed a number of music videos.
There is no word on when “King of Boys” will hit the cinemas.
