The movie director, Kemi Adetiba chose ‘Gangsta Royalty’ as the theme for the event, channeling the vibe from the thriller, which had Sola Sobowale, Reminisce, Adesua Etomi, among others, take on gangster roles.

Celebrities including Ebuka Uchendu, Adesua Etomi, Ini-dinma Okojie, Sola Sobowale, Michelle Dede, Lala Akindoju, Noble Igwe, Adekunle Gold, Ireti Doyle, Toyin Abrahams and others graced the black carpet in their stylish #gangstaroyalty ensembles.

Of course, Kemi, who served as Director and co-producer, was not left out of the dress-up event. She showed up in a custom Mai Atafo piece that was every inch gorgeous.

Speaking ahead of the movie premiere, Kemi Adetiba expressed her delight at finally being able to tell such a compelling story.  “After the huge success of “The Wedding Party”, I wanted to try my hands on a different style of storytelling, one that would show my versatility as a director and a storyteller. Yes, the process of making the movie might have been tedious, as we shot in over 75 different locations, but we are very proud of what we’ve created, and we can’t wait to share this with the world,” she remarked.

King of Boys follows the story of Alhaja Eniola Salami, (played by Sola Sobowale) a businesswoman and philanthropist with a checkered past and a promising political future. She is a pillar in the 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 is drawn into a power struggle that threatens everything she holds dear.

The movie which tackles societal tropes such as political conflict, sibling rivalry, and corruption, features outstanding performances from rap duo, Reminisce and ill BlissAdesua Etomi, and Toni Tones.
