KEMI ADETIBA

How did you pitch KOB 2 to Netflix?

I actually didn’t. Based on how well KOB 1 did on their service and the fanfare our KOB ARMY (as I like to call them) created, Netflix approached me with the idea to collaborate on a second instalment.
I mean… It’s Netflix! (Laughter)
They took me to lunch on one of their visits to Nigeria. I was so nervous and I have to admit, I felt honoured that they asked to meet me one-on-one, saying they wanted to get to know me better. Then during lunch, that said they were interested in a sequel and asked if I was working on one.

As a director, what has been your proudest KOB moments?

When you come across people talking about your work on their own – dissecting it like art. Exchanging their favourite moments, and how it made them feel. Speaking about their connection to the project. It’s never about me. It’s always about the audience. And when I’m privy to witness these moments, where it seems the film or series has taken a life of its own, it makes my heart swell.

Sola Sobowale
Character – Eniola Salami

How did you feel when you heard the movie, King of Boys (KOB) was coming on Netflix?

I was happy because the world will get to see KOB back in action on such a huge platform as Netflix.

What should we expect from your character? Eniola Salami, the last we heard of her, she was in exile?

You should expect the unexpected. It’s as simple as that.
You play your role so well, is there any living influence you portrayed the character?
Funny enough, not at all. The script is so well written that I’m able to see myself in it.

How did you get the role of Eniola Salami?

Kemi invited me for lunch. After the food, she brought the script out, I looked at it, and we talked about it. Then I said “Aaah Kemi, this is big, this is huge. First of all, where are you getting this money from?” She said God will do it. I said okay. What’s my role? She said King of Boys. I looked at her and said, “Are you joking? Are you a gambler? You don’t know me Kemi. Why are you risking your life, your everything? Why do you believe so much in me that I’ll do this?” She said, “Aunty Sola,” you know she has a way of calling me and she said “Aunty Sola you’re going to do it, You’ve done it already.” I replied, “Okay, you believe in me? Give me the baton, let’s run!” The rest is story. Thank God.

 

Nse Ikpe- Etim
Character – JMK Randle

What was it like working on this project?

Every project is peculiar and different. This was certainly one of those that remains unforgettable. It came with its highs and lows, working through a pandemic and the EndSars unrest was difficult to navigate but somehow we stuck together and finished eventually. In all, it was a beautiful experience.

Being a new cast on KOB, what makes it unique?

KOB – “The Return of the King” can be said to be unique just because it’s the first event Netflix Original Series out of Nigeria and also being a different genre (Political Thriller) with absolutely no moments of comic relief and still holds its own regardless. It’s a completely different world.

Deyemi Okanlawon
Character – Adebola Fashina

What was it like working on this project?

It was very hard work but extremely fun. From working for the first time with Kemi Adetiba to playing alongside some of the most talented and most professional actors and crew members in this part of the world, an in addition Kemi using her “Unilag chic training” to tease all of us on social media, this is one movie production I’ll never forget.

What was it like playing your character in KOB?

When I first got the offer to play Adetola Fashina, l was terrified and wondered why Kemi was trying to set me up because this character was totally different from anything I’ve ever played. I was absolutely delighted and got the satisfaction of taking on the challenge to go deeper into untapped areas of my being to bring the character to life.

How would you describe Kemi Adetiba’s style of directing?

Kemi has a way of dragging out the best in you by fire by force, meanwhile, she’ll be pampering you and treating you almost like royalty so you won’t see what she’s doing. I call it 419 directing technique (Laughter).

What do you love most about your character?

Adetola Fashina is such a goofball, very quirky, one of those guys who was a nerd in school but with enough street/social smarts to get around. I hardly get the chance to play such a role and totally loved the experience.

ILLBLISS
Character – Odogwu Malay

What was it like working on this project?

Working on KOB  is a defining chapter in my career. An unforgettable experience and also my acting debut, filled with incredible memories

What was it like playing your character?

Playing Odogwu Malay was absolute fun. Malay is like an illBliss alter ego. I enjoyed being a gangstar from the streets, crime figure of Eastern descent, respected in the streets, incredible  sense of humour, unpredictable. Boss, leader and father, all mixed in one!

Based on the storyline, how do you think KOB mirrors the current reality in Nigeria?

The political intrigues inherent in the Nigerian political system was hugely exposed in KOB. Hugely satirical. It reflects the extent politicians go to stay in office and all the back end shenanigans.
