I cried ugly, happy tears when King of Boys sequel made it to Netflix’ – Kemi Adetiba spills
Last year, Kemi Adetiba and the casts of the newly produced movie ‘King of Boys 2’ (KOB) were highly thrilled after declaration to air on the popular online app visuals known as Netflix.
Sharing a photo of the advert on a billboard, she recounted how she fell sick seven months before the production of KOB 2 and had to work her ass off to make it work.
Speaking further, she mentioned filmmaking is not as easy as it seems to be on screen. However, without leaving any stone unturned, she appreciated all that have participated in making the movie a success.
“If I’ve ever shown bravado on this app, please ignore. I CRIED ugly, happy tears this morning. I’m talking snorting dripping, happy tears. I then got on a twenty minute video call with @solasobowale and we both cried together. This is what dreams are made off. A lot of work has gone into this.
After almost dying last year, and moving straight from the hospital (after being sick for almost 7 months) to the KOB 2 set only six weeks later… This moment feels like a dream that almost didn’t happen. That the devil tried to steal.
Filmmaking is one of the hardest occupations. Don’t let anyone tell you different. Even the guy wrangling cables on set sees PEPPER. But moments like this make it all worth it”.
Sola Sobowale shares experience of ‘King Of Boys’ sequel
Sharing her experiences working on KOB, before and during the ‘King Of Boy’ sequel production, Sola Sobowale revealed she almost gave up.
In an interview with PulseNG, Sola said when Kemi Adetiba called her about the movie production, she turned it down, saying she has touched every angle of the movie, adding there was nothing again to write about the story.
Sola Sobowale said that without seeing the script, Kemi Adetiba made her afraid, considering the standard the first movie had attained. Hence she was worried about how she was going to supersede the first production.
In her words: Kemi said she wanted to do another one, and I said, kemi..what is it that you want to write again because I thought you touched all corners. I thought you touched all the stones, so what are you writing again Kemi.
Then she [kemi] went, ”aah aunty sola; you have to do this”, Kemi was calling every day.
Without even seeing the script, kemi put panic in me. I was like, what do you want me to do again. How am I going to supersede? K.O.B part one had already set the bar high, so how do I pass that.
And she kept echoing in my ears every time my phone rings that aunty sola, you have to do this, you just have to, and I replied, okay, I would talk to you later. I was like, Kemi, what are you doing to me? I then requested for the script…”.
