‘Laburu Has Landed’: It’s Official, The King Of Boys Is Back!

 

It’s the day that nearly every Nigerian movie lover has been waiting for – the day of the return of the King Of Boys.

After a successful run in cinemas back in 2018, producers of the political thriller film decided to bless fans with a second installment.

Production ran through most of 2020 and now fans finally get the opportunity to see what becomes of the revered Eniola Salami (the powerful character played by veteran actress Sola Sobowale).

With a power-packed first installment that garnered rave reviews and multiple awards, fans have remained at the edge of their seats, anticipating what would now be a seven-part series released exclusively to streaming giant, Netflix.

Written, produced, and directed by Kemi Adetiba, ‘King Of Boys 2’ will return previous cast members such as Sola Sobowale, Remilekun “Reminisce” Safaru, iLLBliss, Toni Tones and some new faces such as Nse Ikpe-Etim, Osas Ighodaro, veteran actor, Richard Mofe Damijo and several others.

Netflix Naija has also been teasing the film, giving us sneak peeks into what we should expect.

“Is this your king? King of Boys: The Return of The King is now streaming,” they wrote in a post on Friday.

 

#LaburuIsComing: Brace Yourself For Kemi Adetiba’s ‘King of Boys 2’

 

 

The wait is finally over for Kemi Adetiba’s ‘King of Boys 2’.

The filmmaker and director has confirmed the arrival of ‘King of Boys 2’, the sequel to her 2018 multi-award-winning movie. It means one thing, Labaru is coming.

In a lengthy post shared on her Instagram accompanied by pictures of billboards across cities teasing the movie, Adetiba revealed that the movie production seemed like a dream that would never happen at first.

“If I’ve ever shown bravado on this app, please ignore. I cried ugly, happy tears this morning. I’m talking snorting dripping, happy tears. I then got on a twenty-minute video call with Sola Sobowale, and we both cried together,” she wrote.

“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.”

“I’m grateful to the entire KOB 2 production family. I love you guys more than you know. This is us. Thank you to the amazingly talented actors that gave us their talent to keep safe for them housed in a film. I pray we did you justice, and never let you down.

“And finally… Thank You, Netflix for not only pushing us for greatness but also teaching us so many things needed to elevate to the next level.”

The first installment of King Of Boys got several nods from critics and fans alike with fans singing praises of Sola Sobowale’s performance in the motion picture. Even though the first was premiered in cinemas before it was eventually streamed on Netflix, the sequel will go straight to the streaming giant.

Netflix Naija also teased us with a simple post that read, “Word on the street is that she’s coming back. Let me know if you see her.” #LaburuIsComing

If the reference finds you lost, it is probably because you need to watch the first installment of King of Boys. But if you do not mind spoilers, then you should know that Eniola Salami, self-proclaimed Laburu, is the eponymous King of Boys. She sits at the head of a table of gang-lords and whatever deal any of the other men on the table makes, they are obligated to give her a percentage.

 

via GIPHY

 

Now that we are getting a second part, we have some questions!

To recap, the first part ended with Eniola in exile for five years. From what we saw, she went into exile after she was declared wanted by law enforcement authorities all over the country.

She started to seek power and prominence of a different kind. She wanted to be a minister but the barriers to crossing from the underworld to mainstream politics were higher than what she expected. Will the crossover happen this time?

Will Eniola’s street muscle give her a higher hand when it comes to state politics?

 

via GIPHY

 

Then there is Makanaki (played by Reminisce), who wants to become the King of Boys. A heist had provided him with money and with which he wants to buy power. He openly insults her; she vows to end him. Will she keep her word?

 

via GIPHY

 

Some of the scenes took place in the past and showed a young Eniola as played by Toni Tones, will we be seeing more of her?

via GIPHY

“King Of Boys 2” written, produced, and directed by Kemi Adetiba, will include Sola Sobowale, Remilekun “Reminisce” Safaru, iLLBliss, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Nse Ikpe Etim, Efa Iwara, Toni Tones, Jide Kosoko, Osas Ighodaro, and more.

No word yet on when the movie will be released, but that is okay. We will just keep our fingers crossed and renew our Netflix subscription.

Kemi Adetiba’s ‘King of Boys 2’ A Netflix Original

Kemi Adetiba has announced that her much-anticipated movie sequel, “King Of Boys 2” will be a Netflix original.

The first installment of King Of Boys got several nods with fans singing praises of Sola Sobowale’s performance in the motion picture. Even though the first was seen in the cinema before it could be streamed on Netflix, the second will go straight to the streaming giant.

Adetiba shared the detail on social media through an Instagram post. The award-winning filmmaker wrote: “We’re editing KOB 2 and trying to organize all assets in proper order etc, and it hit me… So that big, flashing, neon-red @netflix “N” is gonna come first… Then my production company’s logo (see above ☺️) and then a “NETFLIX presents…” right after.

MY film is gonna be a Netflix Original!! I don’t know about y’all but ain’t no posing in my book. I might be EXTREMELY scared, nervous, my anxiety is definitely through the roof, but believe me when I say, that I’m also SUPER STOKED about it.
Not bad for this Ekiti/Akwa-Ibom girl who many prolly thought wouldn’t amount to anything. Heck… Even “I” had very serious (and valid) doubts about myself at a time. But life is a journey. And as long as you have breath, you work hard, work smart, play fair (always), you got that killer drive, and are dogged about achieving your goals by any LEGAL (cos some of you…😒) means necessary… There’s always a chance you can drastically change your life story in a positively explosive way. I gotta tell y’all mine one day!!!

And I’m HERE!!! It’s not the end goal of course. Not by a long shot. But it’s a super amazing milestone that I’m both proud of, and grateful for.

But I don’t wanna be here alone… Let’s GOOOOOO!!! p.s. Don’t be scared of your dreams. I dream like a naive 16-year-old who life hasn’t shown yet 🤣

Like @jcolewrld said, “They say anything is possible. You gotta dream like you’ve never seen obstacles!”
I dream of the mighty things I want to do and achieve. And I don’t think a single one of them is stupid, unreasonable or far-fetched.

Your dreams are just God’s way of showing you the blue print of what you are capable of.
Have a happy, goal-achieving “hump day” today ❤️☺️😘 #NetflixShouldersLoading #HiDad 😜

Kemi Adetiba Admits To Anxiety Directing ‘The Wedding Party’

Kemi Adetiba

For its second production, Ebony Life Films got one of Nigeria’s prominent female directors, Kemi Adetiba, to help bring ‘The Wedding Party’ to life.

Speaking of the production, Adetiba told Channels Television that the movie, which is her debut feature length film, brought a lot of anxiety.

“There was a lot of anxiety and nervousness, hence a lot of preparation.

Explaining the sequence of the pressure, she said: “we had to understand the script, the actors, learn to work with the actors, we had meetings with the EP – but I think the most important thing was “relaxing”, because I wanted to be sure I wasn’t transferring any anxiety into the film.

“I wanted it to be very relaxed and enjoyable,” she said.

The movie which stars a host of Nigerian celebrities, including RnB singer, Banky W, and leading actress, Adesua Etomi, screened officially on November 26, 2016, at Eko Hotel and Suites, Lagos.

Kemi Adetiba cut her teeth in the creative industry as she directed the music video for the then, hip hop world awards theme song, ‘A price to die for’, featuring Banky W, rappers M.I and Kel and El Dee the Don among others.

The warm accolades that followed the project, earned her numerous other jobs.

Five years down the line, Adetiba has taken her trade a notch higher and directed her debut feature length movie, another critically acclaimed project.

She also made history by joining other Nigerian films to screen at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on September 8, 2016.

Banky W

Banky W, who took a lead role, said he had worked with Adetiba on past projects and was really proud of her on this one;
“being her first movie and receiving this much attention”.

Adetiba on the other hand expressed appreciation having worked with the stellar cast.

Another star actress, Ireti Doyle, described the film as a “pressure pot situation”, because “even though there was mainly one location, there was a lot going on at the same time, on a huge scale”

She equally praised the director for her efforts in the production and expressed optimism that the audience would enjoy the film.

“Onye” Is A Funny Video About Infidelity, Says Soul Singer, Waje

WajeOne of Nigeria’s top female singers, Waje, has said that her latest music video “Onye” was produced to make people laugh, rather than take too seriously, its central theme- infidelity.

“It’s a serious topic really, when you talk about infidelity and all of that, but I just wanted to have fun,” she said on Sunrise, on Saturday.

She explained that she wanted people to acknowledge that “infidelity is commonplace in society” but to also make fun of it.

“Life is really about fun and enjoying yourself. So, I wanted a funny video that everybody will just watch and laugh.”

She added that she was more interested in people “enjoying the performance” and “laughing about it” than getting the message.

“The song, Onye, is a love song which is basically about two young women boasting about the people they love.”

“It’s about two women who do whatever they can for their man. We just didn’t know that he was not “our man”.

The singer, who grew from being the faceless female voice on PSquare’s “Do Me” to being a big face and name in the industry, said:  “Most of the doors that open for me, open for me because of my voice, not necessarily because there’s anything special that I’m doing”.

 

Waje Release “Onye” Video Featuring Tiwa Savage

wajeNigerian songstress Waje, released the video of her single – Onye featuring Tiwa Savage.

The video which gives a hilarious intake on love was shot in Lagos and features Model and actor Bryan Okwara and Omawumi were Bryan stars as their love interest.
