Kemi Adetiba is currently toying with a brand name change from ‘King Women’ to ‘ObongAnwan.’
In an Instagram post on Tuesday, January 15, 2018, Kemi said, “We’re also playing with the idea of a rebrand. Changing the title “King Woman” back to its original native name “ObongAnwan”. For those that don’t know the story, “ObongAnwan” is a chieftaincy title bestowed on worthy women in my mom’s state of Akwa-Ibom.”

Very excited (yet extremely nervous) to announce that we start shooting the second season of "KING WOMEN" this week. So YES… For all those that have been invading my DMs and accosting me both in private and in public 😝 you WILL have a new season THIS year. We're also playing with the idea of a rebrand. Changing the title "King Woman" back to it's original native name "ObongAnwan". For those that don't know the story, "ObongAnwan" is a chieftaincy title bestowed on worthy women in my mom's state of Akwa-Ibom (where she is from) and this native name directly translates to "King Woman." The original inspiration for the series was my mom who has been offered this prestigious title numerous times. However when naming the series, I was worried people wouldn't embrace a native name. I'm no longer worried. I would love it's deep, cultural essence and significance brought back. However, "King Women" has caught on. So what do you guys think? Leave as is, or evolve and bring back the richness and power rooted in the name. Shoutout to @trellisgroupco for creating an amazing logo. Can you tell what it is???

The ‘King Of Boys’ director further said, the original inspiration for the series was her mom who has been offered this prestigious title numerous times.

She also announced that she, alongside her crew, will start shooting the second season of “KING WOMEN” this week.

“King Women” is simply a web series that tells the story of some of Nigeria’s powerful women of veteran status.

The women in each episode tell their stories from their hearts. It’s the passion and sincerity with which they share their live story that evoke emotions from viewers.

“King Women” is an interview-based series by Adetiba. As the host, she understands how to build relationships with her interviewees and get them to share their unheard stories.
