Released back in 2018, the gangster epic movie focused on power tussle that tells the story of a businesswoman and philanthropist named Alhaja Eniola Salami (played by Nollywood veteran Sola Sobowale) with growing political ambitions.
A sequel of the political thriller is currently in the works. King of Boys joins the likes of Ayo Makun’s “Merry Men” and the Niyi Akomolayan-directed “The Wedding Party 2” which were recently added to the streaming platform.
