After a month of excellent showing in cinemas across the country, Trequity Capital and Kemi Adetiba’s recent cinematic effort, King of Boys, can be said to have booked a place in Nigeria’s movie hall of fame.
The motivation for Trequity Capital’s timely involvement in the production of movies like King of Boys arises from the need to respond to the industry’s thirst for mounting investment which, going by the country’s population, has every potential to yield returns to investors and offer value for money to movie lovers.
In a recent article published on Medium before the movie’s scheduled release date, the Managing Partner of Trequity Capital (Nigeria), Basheer Tosin Ashafa wrote thus: "As much as the movie seeks to entertain with its brilliant screen play and the quality of its directing; not to mention the cast, carefully picked to perfection, “King Of Boys” also takes the role of Uncle Sam by showcasing what a democratic society must not degenerate to. The movie is a shocking reminder of the length people would go to seek political power, even at great cost to the lives of several of their supporters. I must also add, that there is a place for personal responsibility, and young people must never throw away their lives for a morsel of bread provided by self-serving politicians who are hardly up to any good."
