After a successful 2018 release of the first movie named King of Boys, Producer Kemi Adetiba announced in 2019 that there will be a sequel to the movie which will be released in 2020. The movie will most likely still be starring the likes of Sola Sobowale, Reminisce, Toni Tones, IllBliss, and some other actors on set.

Kemi Adetiba has been a tease so far with some of her tweets not giving clues of what to expect in the movie but as one of the promising film producers we expect that the King of Boys 2 will be a very big and successful project. We still await the teaser and the trailer to give us an idea of what the movie tastes like.


2. Fate of Alakada: The Party Planner

From the winner of the African Magic Viewers' Choice Awards (AMVCA) for the best actress in a drama for her performance in the Elevator Baby movie, Toyin Abraham, comes the fourth movie in the franchise of the famous Alakada movie series by the actress. This one titled Fate of Alakada – The Party Planner.

The movie is set to be released on April 3rd in movie theatres nationwide and stars the likes of Toyin Abraham herself, Broda Shaggi, Odunlade Adekola, Timini Egbuson, Alexx Ekubo, Bolanle Ninalowo, Di'Ja, Davido, Swanky Jerry, Peruzzi, Mercy Eke from the Big Brother Naija show, Cobhams Asuquo, and Mansurah Isah amongst others.

3. Ratnik

A lot of movie lovers are still wondering why a movie that has not been released yet could bag two awards from the AMVCA, you're not alone, in fact I'm number 10 on the list of those who are still wondering. But looking at it from this angle, the movie trailer has been released as early as mid of 2019 where a lot of details about the movie was let out, we saw the costumes and the graphics used in creating the movie, this should explain why the movie took home two awards. Though, I still go with those who feel the movie should have been released and have an audience score on it before bagging the honours.

In case you haven't seen the trailer yet, you can easily watch it below.

The Nollywood Sci-Fi movie by Producer Dimeji Ajibola from Flipsyde studios is set to be released on April 10, 2020 starring the likes of Osas Ighodaro, Adunni Ade, Bolanle Ninalowo, Meg Otanwa, Zikky Alloy, Paul Utomi, Tope Tedela, Ani Iyoho amongst others.
