Teniola King


Branded as “One To Watch” by The Islander, British born, Nigerian raised Teniola Zara King, is an alumni of the prestigious London Film School and her debut short film Gidi High Life is the culmination of her time there.

Teniola started her career as a Production Assistant on Nigeria’s first late-night-talk-show, Highlites With IK, where she was quickly promoted to be the Line Producer on the show after only four months.

Hungry to acquire the skills and knowledge to create her own content, Teniola eventually resigned to pursue a Masters in Filmmaking at the London Film School. After two years of studying all aspects of the filmmaking process Teniola has decided to pursue the path of a writer and director.
