Kunle Afolayan Speaks On ‘Anikulapo’s’ Rejection For Oscar Award

Popular film maker Kunle Afolayan has reacted following Nigeria Oscar Selection Committee’s refusal to consider his latest movie “Anikulapo” for an award.

Afolayan’s “Anikulapo” tells the story of Saro, a zealous traveller seeking for greener pasture in the kingdom of Oyo but unfolding events and his affair with the Alaafin’s wife led to his untimely death.

His encounter with a mystical bird, which gave him power grants him a new life beyond his dreams.

As reviews continue to pour in for his newest project which was released on September 20, 2022, the award-winning movie producer expressed delight as he thanked the whole world for tagging his movie a ‘masterpiece’.

Though he seemed disappointed the Nigeria Oscar selection committee’s thought his movie wasn’t worth submitting for an Oscar award, the 48-year-old entertainment boss promised to keep giving his best shot to every of his projects.

He wrote: “I am so pleased and delighted that the whole world has decided to tag ANIKULAPO film a masterpiece even though the Nigeria Oscar selection committee thinks it’s not worth submitting for the Oscars. Will keep doing my own thing.”
