Since the times of Wedding Party 1 which was directed by her, a few films have generated this amount of buzz. While critics have said that it depicts the political climate in Nigeria, enthusiasts have praised Adetiba’s efforts to improve from the status quo to make Nigerian films get international acclaim.
Below is the synopsis of the film:
King of Boys follows the story of Alhaja Eniola Salami, a businesswoman and philanthropist with a checkered past and a promising political future. She is a pillar of society — loved by many, feared by most, and truly known by a select few. As her political ambitions see her outgrowing the underworld connections responsible for her considerable wealth, she’s drawn into a power struggle that threatens everything she holds dear. To come out of this on top, she will need every ounce of the cunning, ruthlessness, and strategy that took her to the top, as well as the loyalty of those closest to her. But who can she really trust?
