The name Kunle Afolayan has steadily become synonymous with making movies in the Nigerian movie scene and the slightly chubby face with the trademark 'circle beard' is now an unmistakable one both locally and internationally amongst the patrons of African movies.

With well over ten years’ worth of experience in directing movies tucked snugly under his belt, there can only be one outcome when the multi award winning Kunle Afolayan takes the director’s seat on any set. The ever-smiling father of three became a regular mainstay in the Nigerian film industry since 2005 and with the success of Irapada in 2006, he has strived to improve on the quality of his films with each new project he has touched, and with great success too.

2017 has been a busy year for the actor/director and with the debut of one of his latest works titled ‘ROTI’ hitting the cinemas worldwide, it is no wonder he is fast becoming one of Africa’s most loved movie directors, and some would even argue that he has already attained the ‘Legend Status’ when it comes to movie making.

So tune in tonight (wednesday) on Jara at 22:30 CAT as Kunle Afolayan will be talking about the future of filmmaking in Nigeria; on Africa Magic Urban, DStv Channel 153.
