The Ikorodu Bois, a group of teenage boys, rose to fame on Nigerian social media space with their unique and hilarious remakes of blockbuster movie trailers and music videos of hit singles such as MJ’s they don’t care about us, Burna Boy’s pull up, Bad Boys For Life, Money Heist, the recent Extraction and a host of others.
Months ago, the boys caught the attention of American actor, Will Smith, after they recreated the Bad Boys Forever trailer.
