He wanted to find love after his parents planned to arrange a bride for him and he moved to New York to find a woman who loved him for who he is and not because of his status.

3 King of Boys 2
King of Boys marked a great turning point for Nollywood, we saw a movie that paid great attention to storyline, action, screen writing and direction. The 2018 film shook Nigerian Cinemas and theaters abroad. Its total domestic gross was around #245,000,000, and even though it didn’t surpass movies like ‘The wedding party’ or ‘Chief Daddy’, it was applauded for sustaining audience’s interest for three hours!
I never knew it was so long until I finished seeing it in the cinema and I was like ‘Don’t tell me it’s over!’ Then, I was tempted to go in and see it again but it was late.
“King of Boys tells the story of Alhaja Eniola Salami (played by Sola Sobowale), a businesswoman and philanthropist with a promising political future. She is drawn into a struggle for power which in turn threatens everything around her as a result of her growing political ambitions. To come out of this on top, she is caught up in a game of trust, not knowing whom really to look up to, and this leads to her ruthlessness”
Kemi Adetiba, the director of the movie, disclosed that the sequel King of Boys 2, is ready and is set for Netflix release this year. But she has been so mum about the release date and we have been over the edge. She has even received threats for not disclosing the release date.
4 Spider man: No way home
Spider man: No way home is the third of the spider man Marvel franchise. Spider man has always been a delight to watch no matter how many times it has been re-made. The movie series is simply ageless and endlessly thrilling. Although one might agree that Spider man homecoming was way better than Spider man far from home. Still, it doesn’t mean that the movie series will not always have a place in our heart.
5 Thor: Love and thunder
