Always put the project first!! I will talk about @femiadebayosalami very soon. But first, let’s cross 200m…which is soon all hail the Box office king.
Kemi Filani News earlier reported 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 by his pillaging, the kingdom moves to destroy him, through the hunters, witches and priests, thus beginning this adventurous saga of revenge, bravery and glory.
It stars Adedimeji Lateef, Aisha Lawal, Broda Shaggi, Femi Adebayo, Ibrahim Chatta, Mr Macaroni, Odunlade Adekola, Toyin Abraham Ajeyemis, Peju Ogunmola and more.
From acting to production to storytelling to prop quality, to the costumes, effects, the acting, sound track and background chants, music, The star studded King of thieves goes to show that the Yoruba Nollywood has advanced indeed and now cinema worthy.
All the characters brought in their A games especially Peju Ogunmola, she was amazing, and also actor Itele D Icon who played Agekinsole’s right hand, the character was so annoying and dastardly wicked but when the history of how he reincarnated was told, the audience forgave his wickedness.
Although King of thieves was filled with it incantations in almost every scene, we particularly enjoyed how all its dialogue was in beautiful ijinlé Yoruba language.
So yes the hype was indeed worth it, from us at Kemi Filani, it is an 8/10.
