Reposted from @niyi_akinmolayan When partners learn to respect what each brings to a project, you’ll see hits like King Of Thieves!!!
Always put the project first!! I will talk about @femiadebayosalami very soon. But first, let’s cross 200m… which is soon to be the king of the box office.
Kemi Filani News reported earlier that King of Thieves is an epic tale of Agesinkole, an all-powerful bandit and his reign of terror in the prosperous kingdom of Ajeromi. Concerned about its plunder, the kingdom sets out to destroy it, through hunters, witches and priests, thus beginning this adventurous saga of vengeance, bravery and glory.
It stars Adedimeji Lateef, Aisha Lawal, Broda Shaggi, Femi Adebayo, Ibrahim Chatta, M. Macaroni, Odunlade Adekola, Toyin Abraham Ajeyemis, Peju Ogunmola and more.
From acting and production to storytelling and quality props, costumes, effects, acting, soundtrack and background vocals, music, King of Thieves starry shows that Yoruba Nollywood has indeed progressed and is now cinema worthy.
All the characters brought their A games especially Peju Ogunmola she was amazing also actor Itele D Icon who played the right hand of Agekinsole the character was so annoying and despicably evil but when the story of her reincarnation was told, the public forgave his wickedness.
Although King of Thieves was filled with incantations in almost every scene, we particularly liked how all of its dialogue was in the beautiful Yoruba ijinlé language.
So yes the hype was definitely worth it, from us at Kemi Filani it’s an 8/10.
