Amidst all the ordeals and challenges in selecting a lead character and the lethargic story line of the movie, the movie indeed surpassed all expectations and it is rapidly becoming one of the fastest selling movies in the history of Nollywood. Despite some of the obstacles the movie faced during the pre-production phase, nonetheless it came out exquisite.

See what Kemi Adetiba wrote on her Instagram:

“1) Don’t do a non-comedy film. They don’t sell in this country. 
2) Don’t make your lead character a woman. It will put people off. 
3) Don’t do a film with over 50% of the Dialogue in Nigerian language. It won’t work. 
4) You can’t put an almost 3 hour movie in the cinemas. The audacity of it !!! When it’s not Avengers or Lord of the Rings. No one will go to watch. You must really think you’re some auteur or something. When you’re not Steven Spielberg or Woody Allen. 
5) You can’t put an almost 3 hour movie in the cinemas. You’ll have limited showings in a day and you won’t make any money. 
@kingofboysmovie answer: Number 1 movie in Nigeria and West Africa (INCLUDING over every HOLLYWOOD film in the cinema right now) 
Take home of the day… BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!!! GOD IS GOOD!!! #KOBSeason#KOBFEVER”
