“I almost died before shooting King of Boys” — Kemi Adetiba




Award-winning movie director, Kemi Adetiba, has revealed to fans that she almost died during the production of the much-anticipated sequel of fan-favorite movie, King of Boys.

Adetiba told the story of the struggles she faced during the film’s production via her verified Instagram page. She added that she almost lost her life back in 2020 following an illness that lasted for 7 months.

She also added that immediately after recovery she moved from the hospital straight to the movie set.

Adetiba wrote,

“This is what dreams are made of. A lot of work has gone into this. After almost dying last year, and moving straight from the hospital (after being sick for almost 7 months) to the KOB 2 set only six weeks late. This moment feels like a dream that almost didn’t happen. That the devil tried to steal.”

The host turned director also commended all the people who put in the effort to make the movie production a success, and to the fans, she stated that she “prays we did you justice, and never let you down”.
