King of Boys follows the story of Alhaja Eniola Salami, a businesswoman and philanthropist with a mixed past and a promising political future. She is a pillar of society; loved by many, feared by most, and truly known by a select few. As her political ambitions see her outgrowing the underworld connections responsible for her considerable wealth, she’s drawn into a power struggle that threatens everything she holds dear. To come out of this on top, she will need every ounce of the cunning, ruthlessness, and strategy that took her to the top, as well as the loyalty of those closest to her. But who can she really trust?
Sola Sobowale plays an engaging role as Alhaja Eniola, it is difficult to relate the kind philanthropist with the strict woman who spits venom but she plays this magnificently, leaving us enthralled in the mystery that is Alhaja Eniola.

Seeing these two in action and strategizing is enough to keep you at the edge of your seat till the very end.
