Ace Nigerian filmmaker Kemi Adetiba has recounted her close shave with death a few months before the filming of “King Of Boys 2” kicked off.In a lengthy post on her Instagram page on Wednesday 14th July, Kemi narrated how she almost died in 2020 after being sick for almost seven months.
On arrival from the hospital, she began filming the “King of Boys 2“ six weeks later, as she explained that filmmaking is no small feat.
“If I’ve ever shown bravado on this app, please ignore. I CRIED ugly, happy tears this morning. I’m talking snorting dripping, happy tears. I then got on a twenty-minute video call with @solasobowale and we both cried together. This is what dreams are made off. A lot of work has gone into this.
After almost dying last year, and moving straight from the hospital (after being sick for almost 7 months) to the KOB 2 set only six weeks later… This moment feels like a dream that almost didn’t happen. That the devil tried to steal.
Filmmaking is one of the hardest occupations. Don’t let anyone tell you different. Even the guy wrangling cables on set sees PEPPER. But moments like this make it all worth it.
I’m grateful to the ENTIRE KOB 2 production FAMILY. I love you guys more than you know. This is US!!
Thank you to the amazingly talented actors that gave us their talent to keep safe for them housed in a film. I pray we did you justice, and never let you down”.
