Kemi Adetiba’s King of Boys Sequel Debuts Exclusively on Netflix
Kemi Adetiba’s King of Boys: The Return of the King has debuted exclusively on Netflix. The movie launched on Friday and the executive producer, Adetiba, announced the news on Twitter. It is the first original series in Nigeria to be released on Netflix. This latest release is a sequel to the King of Boys first released in 2018.
“KOB: The Return of the King’ is now live on the Netflix platform only! #KOBArmyX it’s been an honour to stand the line and fight beside you all,” Adetiba tweeted. “Today, we enjoy the spoils of our battle. God bless this day. Even more than He has done others!”
The movie features veteran Yoruba actress Sola Sobowale, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Toni Tones, Charley Boy, and a host of other talented artistes. Sobowale is the King of Boys, Eniola Salami aka Laburu.
The movie recounts the tale of an underworld lord who was deposed and banished from her domain. The king plots to return with an underground army to reclaim her throne and expand her kingdom beyond her original domain. The storyline captures the intrigues of kingship, underworld conflicts, and local authority from a local lord.
Adetiba warned that viewers must only watch the movie on Netflix to support the growth of the entertainment industry and not on any other platform.
“As soldiers, you do the movement a disservice if you watch from any other platform other than Netflix,” Kemi Adetiba wrote. “If you’re not watching on Netflix, you’re watching illegally. We don’t move like that and it does nothing for our battle. Thank you guys for the honour of both a leading and serving. This is a moment of history. Let’s enjoy every second of it!”
She added that watching the content on any other platform would amount to piracy, and that this would be a disservice to the efforts of the producer, artistes, and the entire industry.
