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?

Its an 8. This is the beginning of good production. You can do better. Just believe.
8 October 2019 | by shabijummySee all my reviews

This is a movie that portrays how Nigerian society is bn controlled, this movie is an eye opener to how deep corruption has bn and how far people can go to cover their tracks, I honestly never believed that I was driving and watching this movie, filled with tears and fear for our future, Kemis Adetiba honestly just narrowed down the problem we are facing in the society, corruption starts with us as an individual, we need to personally decide to stop it from us even if it will cost us our loved ones, that's how we can eradicate all these nonsense. Kemi Adetiba just shed light on our daily lives can be controlled a million miles away, this awesome film maker didn't limit cost of production, put her soul and tear and resources to producing not only Emmy awards rated movie but an inspirational movie to all(both old and young). The only criticism I have is Kemi Adetiba, you did extremely too good to be a Nigerian production. You gave us faith, hope, longevity and desire to know that Nigeria hasn't lost it all, there's still something positive to hold on to. Thank you Kemi Adetiba, May others do to you that which you cannot do for yourself.
