The Netflix featured movie is about the lead character Alhaja Eniola Salami played by Shola Shobowale; who is a mother, a business woman and head the table of an underground world that controls the affairs of the state and political propaganda. She's popularly known as Oba meaning king, which evidently brought about the title of the movie as being a strong woman that handles the position of what everyone will automatically give to the male gender.
I loved how Eniola Salami knows her game. She understands how to move ahead before her enemies. I mean the deaths of her children did a number on her as she came back a new fueled for revenge and anger but it also gave her a stronger mind to take on the world from a different angle which led her to run for the gubernatorial election of Lagos state.
Although she struggled with her inner self while seeking redemption, Eniola still took some thoughtful decisions that I'll consider brave and mature for example, when she did not agree to silencing the journalist who was on her trail to expose the nature of her business and that of some top ranking politicians like the president of Nigeria.
However, the way the director brought back Makanaki who is Eniola's sworn enemy as successor to the table is still confusing, following all the events that took place between them in the prequel. The director failed to show us why such turn around of events. I know the movie is filled with suspense and triller but from the beginning we didn't get any hint that Makanaki, one of Eniola's enemy would be the next king.
In conclusion I loved how the movie exposed the truth behind the success of some political parties, their lifestyles and intentions for the people. It did not fail to bring the religious beliefs to books, especially the church.
In general, the Director and Producer did a great work at exposing corrupt leaders and hungry men's tussle for power. The fluent affirmative expression in Yoruba was undeniably remarkable. A plus for the auditors and actors, not forgetting Shola Shobowale known as king and her exceptional role in bringing the king of boys to a massive success.
