Kunle Afolayan Discusses Daughter’s Role in Anikulapo
In a report by TSZ Naija last year, Kunle Afolayan shed light on why he cast his daughter, Eyiyemi Afolayan, in the role of Princess Omowunmi in his latest film, Anikulapo.
Sharing a short video clip of himself and his daughter on his verified Instagram account, Afolayan explained that the role called for someone beautiful, and his daughter perfectly fit the description. He also praised her singing talent and natural acting skills.
Eyiyemi, Afolayan’s eldest child, made her acting debut in Anikulapo.
Afolayan expressed his satisfaction, saying, “It felt good because I did not have to pay her, even though I was paying her directly or indirectly.”
When asked about her portrayal of Princess Omowunmi, Eyiyemi described the character as “foolish” due to her misguided feelings for Saro, despite his lack of romantic interest. She acknowledged the character’s beauty but also pointed out her gullibility.
Kunle Afolayan Grateful for National Honor
Recently, Kunle Afolayan expressed his gratitude to the Nigerian government for bestowing him with a prestigious national honor.
Following the announcement of the 2023 National Honours recipients, where Afolayan was among the 50 individuals awarded the Officer of the Order of Nigeria (OON), the filmmaker took to Instagram to pen an appreciation post.
Afolayan expressed his joy in waking up to a double celebration, as filming for his movie, Anikulapo Rise of the Spectre, began the previous day, and now he had received a national award.
