Kunle Afolayan recently said that funding was paramount for the production of quality movies.
He said that this was why some of them in Nollywood could not compete favourably with their contemporaries when aired on international broadcast stations.
“Access to finance is one of the major challenges to ensuring that the production of movies has rich cultural content.’’
The accomplished Nigerian actor, film producer and director, known for films like: Phone Swap (2012), The CEO (2016) and October 1 (2014), said that he was excited to have produced his latest movie.
Afolayan said that it gave him an opportunity to work with accomplished thespians.
“I feel honoured to have worked with the likes of Lere Paimo (Eda), Adebayo Salami (Oga Bello) and Wole Olowomojuore (Baba Gebu), who were my father’s contemporaries in the industry,’’ he said.
