- Kunle Afolayan has explained why he avoids collaborations in Nollywood industry
- Says he doesn’t like stress so he’ll rather work with like minds
Ekohotblog reports that Nollywood actor and filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan has disclosed why he avoids collaborations with fellow filmmakers in the industry.
The filmmaker made the revelation during a panel session hosted by the Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF). The session which also had top film executives Mo Abudu and Bolanle Austen-Peters was centered on producing Nollywood blockbusters.
According to Afolayan, collaborations in Nollywood often always leads to problems which he tries to avoid by sticking with like minds.
“For me, I take my time, I don’t like problems. We all share different visions sometimes as creatives and the way we think is also very different,” the filmmaker said.
“I don’t like to just talk to money bags. I don’t want someone who is just going to say what does it cost to make a film? I don’t like those things and those are the kind of things you get. Tunde Kelani and I have partnered on several levels. In fact, the last two films I was part of it as EP and actor. I collaborate with people who speak the same language.”
Kunle Afolayan has collaborated with veteran filmmaker Tunde Kelani to produce top rated movies and most recently, Ayinla.
The 47-year-old also has multiple award-winning movies to his credits like Figurine, CEO, October 1 and many others.
