“Every Single Character In ‘King Of Boys’ Is Based On A Real Person Or Composite Of Persons” – David Hundeyin

King of Boys David Hundeyin

David Hundeyin is no stranger to controversy. The popular Nigerian investigative journalist has taken to Twitter to reveal his latest findings, which some movie-going Nigerians might have suspected all along, that King of Boys is inspired by real-life events.

David Hundeyin Tweeted:

“By the way, every single character in King Of Boys is based on a real person or composite of persons, even though Kemi Adetiba will never admit this publicly for obvious reasons. Makanaki, Odogwu Malay, Aare, Eniola, the pastor. All real people. That is all I have to say.”

King of Boys follows Eniola Salami (Sola Sobowale), a businesswoman and philanthropist, and her insatiable appetite for power, which drives her into politics. As she is drawn into a struggle for power, her criminal baggage will prove a heavy burden.

The movie was in cinemas in 2018 to critical and financial acclaim. A sequel miniseries debuted on Netflix in 2021. Although an official announcement hasn’t been made yet, another entry is expected in the still very-profitable franchise anytime now.
