King of Boys, the 2nd feature film from Kemi Adetiba was premiered to pomp and glamour on Sunday the 21st of October at the Film House Lekki, Lagos. Written and directed by Adetiba, the movie follows the story of Alhaja Eniola Salami, a businesswoman and philanthropist with a checkered past and a promising political future. In line with the story, the premiere was themed “Gangsta Royalty” and as always, we’ve created the ultimate best dressed list (men and women) from the glam night. As expected, black dominated the carpet but there were a few who stood out in their popping colors.

The King herself! Lead character of the movie, Sola Sobowale wasn’t about to be out-done by her subjects. She showed up and showed out wearing Luminee Couture (design house owned by her daughter).


Ebuka Obi-Uchendu‘s outfit is usually the most  anticipated at any red carpet event. The fashionisto didn’t disappoint, adding some African spice to the gangsta royalty theme.
Ini Dima-Okojie never fails to bring it. The fact that she was wearing fuschia did not take away from her gangsta-ness and you can’t deny that in this combo from FabLane by Derin, she can only be the leader of the mafia.
Newly wed Lala Akindoju wearing Mai Atafo got the theme to a T, you just want to meet her and ask, how may I be of service today boss?
Debola Williams stuck to his usual red and white colors but was in line with the theme wearing this agbada by Magnum Stitches. The media boss sure looked like a gangsta king.
