The First Official Trailer for 'Knock Out Blessing' Is Here

The highly anticipated follow-up from Nigerian director Dare Olaitan premieres December 28.

Nigerian director Dare Olaitan has dropped the first official trailer following the teaser he shared in October for his new project, Knock Out Blessing.

The visionary remains consistent bringing us comedy/suspense thriller in the Ojukokoro follow-up, telling the story of three girls embarking on an adventure to survive, which leads them into the criminal sector of Nigeria's political underworld.


Olaitan shares the summary of the film on Twitter, detailing:

A nation in need of truth. A good girl with a violent gift. Bad girls with (good?) intentions. A dark hat politician with a terrible secret. Opportunistic criminals biting more than they can chew. A ruthless assassin on a mission.

In the midst of this perceived intensity, one still manages to let out a laugh or two while watching the trailer.

Check it out below.
