Kunle Afolayan has thrilled all movie lovers consistently for years. For us, he symbolizes hope for Nollywood.
He gives us something to believe in as regards Nigerian movies and what they’ve presented on our screens for such a long time. Kunle is a breath of fresh air really.
He treads paths that other playwrights dread, and often returns with beautifully executed stories that are fresh as newly baked bread. From Figurine to The CEO, down to October 1, He has sure brought beauty to our screens.
October 1 is a really good movie. I appreciate all the work Kunle Afolayan put in.

Though not a ‘Yoruba movie’ The CEO had the best plot twist of any Nigerian movie last year https://t.co/pH0EWKzg19

Then there came Roti, an amazing story of reincarnation, a phenomenon that has brought a lot of arguments and discussions, but we mostly believe is rampant in Nigeria.
In Roti we felt the raw pain of a mother at the death of her child, we felt the struggle to hold on to hope, the effect pain could have on a family. There were tears, emotions, the feels in that movie were so real!
Finally got round to watching @kunleafolayan ‘s movie ‘Roti’. The man is a brilliant storyteller.

And Kunle Afolayan is at it again! A little bird has it that Kunle Afolayan is set to release a new movie, The Bridge. But the part that has us so excited is the star actress. Looks like Miss Kedike is coming to Nollywood! She is to star in the movie alongside Kunle Afolayan himself, Tina Mba, Ayo Mogaji, Zack Orji and a host of others.
Kunle Afolayan has a new movie showing this December. The Bridge. Good news.

It’s a story of a forbidden love among intertribal lovers, and of a marriage held in secret. To be honest, that’s a path that many playwrights walk, but we trust Kunle Afolayan to give it just the right twist that will make it into an entirely new thing.
He released a thirty second clip on Instagram some hours ago to fuel our flames, and we are full of excitement. We’re waiting as patiently as we possibly can for him to release a trailer. Who else can’t wait to see Chidinma in a movie?!
Out of excitement I decided to release just 30 sec of the official Trailer of The BRIDGE. The full trailer will be released on Friday 10th November.
