Nollywood actor Titi Kuti, who played the role of ‘Ade Tiger’ in ‘King of Boys 2’, has explained why he accepted the role.
King of Boys 2, a seven-episode Netflix adapted series directed by Kemi Adetiba, has been trending in Nigeria since its launch in August 2021.
The character of ‘Ade Tiger’ in King of Boys 1 happened to be one of the main characters in King of Boys ‘The return of the King’, which got Nigerians talking.
When asked what inspired him to take on the role, Kuti, speaking with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu in a recent interview, said he was inspired by his urge to take risks.
“Adetiba takes risks and I agree with that because I love taking positive risks. That’s why I took on the role of ‘Ade Tiger’.
“It was just me maximizing myself, I think you can be anything once you have the will and the talent,” said Titi Kuti.
“There are actors who had a bigger marketing strategy for the film, but Kemi Adetiba just asked me, ‘Will you do it? You can not do it?’ And I was willing to take a chance with her.
“I am attracted to risk takers and I was willing to make my dream come true.”
When asked about the pressure on him after the release of ‘King of Boys 2’, Ade Tiger said that while he is not in Nigeria to feel the excitement, he feels good.
“I am not currently in Nigeria to hear that rumor, but I am happy that ‘King of Boys’ is receiving this reception from everyone. It makes me feel good, there is nothing more satisfying than seeing your dream come true, ”he said.
