Filmmaker Kunle Afolayan unveiled his latest work “Anikulapo”

Date:

Kunle Afolayan unveiled his latest work, Anikulapo in January. The production of the star-studded movie pioneered a film village in Oyo State making fans liken the exploits of Kunle Afolayan to America’s Tyler Perry. 

The movie is already breaking ground asides from being among three movies originally signed by Netflix to be produced and directed by Kunle Afolayan. The movie will be produced on a 40 acres mass of land with all infrastructures built from the scratch with over 300 men working on-site as Kunle Afolayan revealed recently. When Kunle Afolayan posted a photograph on Instagram in December 2021 on the Kunle Afolayan Production (KAP) Film Village, a fan _akanimo_ reacted, ‘our Tyler Perry’ likening the Nigerian veteran movie producer and director to Perry who acquired a 330 acre of land in Atlanta where he converted to a studio. Perry in February said Black Panther was the first movie to be filmed in the studio. Black Panther went on to be a Marvel Blockbuster with global recognitions and awards. Probably Anikulapo toes the same path as Black Panther.

Afolayan on the new movie said, “The movie dates back to the 17th century and plots around the old Oyo Empire. This entire production isn’t merely bold but signals the birth of a new dawn. Basically, think Hollywood (the location and infrastructure), think KAP Film Village, Studio and Resort because Kunle Afolayan isn’t building for the purpose of this movie alone but for the purpose of constant and repeated use. Indeed, we are witnessing the birth of a new era as we watch the resort blossom before our very eyes. We are witnessing in our days, the appreciation and rebirth of the almost dying Yoruba culture, we are experiencing the rise of hope for the heritage that was once thought to be lost.”
