Kemi Adetiba’s most anticipated movie ‘King of Boys’ returned with a 7 episode special on Netflix and fans cannot stop talking about it. From the captivating storyline to powerful compelling characters to the wardrobe of the cast, people cannot get enough of the artistry that was displayed both by the stellar cast and the costume designers.
Sola Sobowale’s leading role as Oba, the notorious criminal head had her consistently serving looks to our collective delight.
Here are 5 of our favourite looks
1. Sultan Oba
This show-stopping look proved to us that Eniola Salami is undoubtedly the King of Boys. This sultan-inspired outfit symbolizes power and nobility and Eniola embodies both qualities well. The white draped turban, cream coloured embroidered robe and flowy gown was designed and styled by Tiannah’s Empire.

This look was nothing short of art. From her folded high turban to the hand painted symbols around the collar and the white satin blouse with huge bell shaped puffed up sleeves paired with orange tan trousers, everything came together to make this artsy ethnic masterpiece that was also sketched, designed and styled by Tiannah’s Empire.

Sola draped a structured brightly colored flowing pink jacket with indigo patterns over a long flowing dress of similar fabric. She accentuated the look with beautiful silver beaded jewellery, large flower-shaped gold rings, a matching pink turban and beautiful classy makeup look.

Also tailored and styled by Tiannah’s Empire, this look was tailored to perfection and designed to convey the authority and power the Oba wields
