King Of Boys: The Return Of the King Official Trailer Teases Bigger Aspirations and New Foes

What’s better than a King of Boys movie? Any answers? Anyone? A sequel, but this time as a series. Exciting, right?

After its box office success in 2018, the Kemi Adetiba-directed political thriller has gone on to become one of the most revered and celebrated movies in Nigeria. Asides the beautiful imagery and cinematography of the original movie, the themes and relatedness of the movie has also granted the movie the status it has today, making it the most anticipated Nollywood project in 2021.

The trailer opens with an eerie sound which is soon replaced with Eniola declaring her intention to run for the Governorship position of Lagos, which finally sees her  not settling  for crumbs from the political class. For every new level, there is a new devil, but our Eniola has new devils. The trailer then takes us through montages of new foes: a menacing Nse Ikpe-Etim, a charming priest (RMD), old acquaintances, and even Eniola is at conflict with her younger self. The trailer also teases Charly Boy to be the main villain as we see him go down Makanaki’s path of challenging Eniola’s crown. Our favorite anti-hero might drown in her sea of foes.

The sequel, a 7-part mini series, will see Eniola Badmus (Sola Sobowale) reprise her role as Eniola Salami, alongside Reminisce, IllBliss, and Akin Lewis (Devil in Agbada). Osas Ighodaro, and Titi Kuti are some of the confirmed names that would also be returning. Confirmed newcomers to the KOB universe include Nse Ikpe-Etim, Richard Mofe Damijo ‘RMD’, Efa Iwara, Deyemi Okanlawon, Charly Boy and Lord Frank.

In the series, Eniola Salami returns to Nigeria after 5 years in exile. Her return triggers a chain of events bigger than what happened in the original movie, that promise to be the bedrock of this highly anticipated sequel. 

King Of Boys: The Return Of The King will be released on Netflix on August 27, 2021.
