The release date for the sequel to action-packed, political thriller movie, king of boys, has been disclosed.
Popular Nigerian movie producer, Kemi Adetiba, who is the brain behind the satirical movie announced the release date for the blockbuster on her social media pages.
She disclosed that King of Boys 2 will be available on streaming platform, Netflix, by August 27.
“You can now confidently set your reminders and refresh your Netflix Accounts, KOB 2 is officially landing on August 27. No going back,” she tweeted
However, unlike King of boys 1, which is a three-hour long movie, “King of Boys 2” will be a seven-part Netflix Original series, the first of its kind in Nigeria.
It will also no longer be known as ‘king of boys’, the sequel will be titled “The Return of the King.”
Earlier in the month, the lawyer turned producer gave a hint about the sequel on her page and also revealed that the production of the movie was tedious and painstaking, especially as she was gravely ill during the period.
“This is what dreams are made of. A lot of work has gone into this. After almost dying last year, and moving straight from the hospital (after being sick for almost 7 months) to the KOB 2 set only six weeks later,” she wrote on her Instagram page.
Released in 2018, King of Boys is a political thriller that chronicles the life of Alhaja Eniola Salami, a businesswoman, philanthropist, and ruthless lord of the underworld whose thirst for power almost led to her ruin.
Winning the best movie in the 15th edition of the Africa Movie Academy Awards, KOB featured the likes of veteran actress Sola Sobowale (who playedAlhaja Salami), Jide Kosoko, Adesua Etomi-Wellington, rappers Reminisce and IllBliss, Keppy Ekpeyoung, Toni Tones and several others.
