We know it is not every day or every time newly produced movies will trend in Nigerian homes.
In fact, before any topic or movie come out to trend in many Nigerian homes, it must be something that touches one important of everyday life.
The king of Boys is produced by Kemi Adetiba and directed by Veteran Actress, Sola Sobowale who is also the main character in the movie.
As Eniola Salami in the film, Sobowale is a very powerful and influential politician, who uses everything she has to get rid of her enemies.
In part one of the movie that was released on October 20, 2018, They arrested and jailed her but she still escaped and left the country.
While in part two, she returned back to Lagos to push her politics to work with plenty of black powers, this made people give her the name “Laburu” which means evil in Yoruba.
King of Boys – “The Return of The King” Exposes The Dark Side of Nigerian Politics
Nigeria is a big country full of corruption and struggles for power at any cost.
King of Boys captured things that are happening underground in Nigerian politics as people seek power.
The character of Sola Sobowale is the perfect example and people continue to expose her in the part two of the film.
This is an eye opener on why people in the country must push for good governance, accountability and transparency.
The truth of the matter is that if they keep quiet, the country will remain stagnant and innocent lives will continue to be wasted away.
