Written by User 990003 on 22 — 02
Nigerian filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan has announced that he is building a multi-million film village in Itesiwaju Local Government Area, of Oyo State.
The celebrated director who recently unveiled his production outfit called Kunle Afolayan Productions Hub, made this known at a recent launch in Lagos.
Afolayan stated that, “Currently, I am building a film village in Oyo state. It’s actually in Itesiwaju federal constituency, where Hon Shina Peller currently represents at the National Assembly.
“I am not one who waits for the government, I do my thing and the government can come in and discuss after seeing what we have done. What we have done is very massive and we look at completing it before or by 2022.”
The ‘Citation’ director sometime in November confirmed that he will be releasing a new film in December, following the release of his Netflix Original, ‘Swallow’.
Afolayan had shared behind the scenes photos from the production which will star Kunle Remi, Caroline King, Mercy Johnson and the late Rachel Oniga.
