Storyline

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?

Good but not fantastic
13 January 2019 | by dolyteeeSee all my reviews

The hype in Nigeria and in UK made me decide to watch the film. The story line, cinematography, colour , actors/ actresses were fabulous, but I was disappointed at the end because my expectations as well as 3 friends I watched with were not met considering the hype.

I'm glad the film raised the Nigerian film industry profile even further. That said , in my opinion the wailing in the film will not attract international audience . I as a Nigerian felt the scenes where people raised their voices were over the top, therefore not enjoyable for me .
