Kemi Adetiba has released the first teaser for her latest film project, King of Boys 2, stirring up anticipation among Nollywood lovers and fans of the first installment. The gripping new teaser hints on the comeback of the prequel’s villain, Makanaki (played by rapper, Reminisce) whose end left fans speculating. Though work is reported to still be ongoing, the upcoming film is expected to hit the big screens later this year.
The teaser tells the story of a smart young man, beloved by the gods, who receives a very big portion of land to dominate and rule. He eventually got too arrogant and then decided to raise an army to challenge his superiors. But the elders had heard of his plan, and led by the Kabiyesi, they defeated and incinerated him. But they had been too late. He already had too much power, and now, his name is never to be said out loud.
King Of Boys 2 was written, produced, and directed by Kemi Adetiba, making this her third movie after the release of The Wedding Party (the 2016 blockbuster about a couple’s lavish wedding plans turned into a nightmare of exes and fighting parents) and King of Boys (the 2018 megahit about a powerful businesswoman’s political ambitions and an ensuing power struggle.)
The star-studded cast of King of Boys 2 is comprised of Sola Sobowale, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Taiwo Ajayi-Lycett, Deyemi Okanlawon, Remilekun ‘Reminisce’ Safaru, iLLBLISS, Efa Iwara, Toni Tones, Jide Kosoko, Bimbo Manuel and Osas Ighodaro.
