FOKN Bois' Pidgen Musical Sequel 'Coz Ov Moni 2: FOKN Revenge'

FOKN Bois return with the world's second first pidgin musical 'Coz Ov Moni 2: FOKN Revenge.'


Ghana's FOKN Bois duo of Wanlov the Kubolor and M3NSA recently returned with the "world’s second first pidgen musical" Coz of Moni II: FOKN RevengeWhile the first installment was a day-in-the-life foray full of missteps and foibles, this time around revenge is the main dish served. The film follows the tongue-in-cheek duo as they go on a mission tracking down members of the machete-wielding gang that had ambushed, wounded, robbed and left them for dead.

While the rest of the world geared up for the yuletide festivities, FOKN Bois launched their latest take on societal issues at a premiere event in Accra. We expect the sophomore Coz Ov Moni film to make the rounds in the coming months. Look out for a screening in a city near you — until then, you can grab a copy of Coz Ov Moni 2: FOKN Revenge on DVD. Watch the event trailer, featuring some pretty dope footage from the film, and part one ("the world's first pidgen musical") in full below:
