Weekend watch list – In honour of Sola Sobowale

One week on and Netflix consumers are still obsessing over Sola Sobowale’s fronted thriller series  ‘King of Boys: The Return of a King’. The limited series, which started off as a two-hour feature film ‘King of Boys’ has easily broken the mould of sequels underserving than their originals.

Sobowale’s dramatic punch was inarguable a clue to her versatility that honed a grieving mother, a desperate political aspirant and a vengeful high-class rebel ready to play the underworld game.

Here, Sobowale doesn’t retire in one scene and resurrects in the next two. Every screen time is unparalleled and as such gives the series a refreshing take that Nollywood has been experimenting with within the past years.

Her screen credits are now endless with exceptional titles that include her beloved work ‘Super Story: Oh Father Oh Daughter’ and her box office breakthrough ‘The Wedding Party’. She has done it like no other and continues to do it.

For our watch list this weekend, we have assembled the best and good from her impressive archive of film and television.
