The film maker said, “Personally I have never encountered a situation whereby an actress would offer me sex for a movie role. They would not even dare come to me. They say that I am proud.
“The social media may have some advantages, but it also has a lot of disadvantages. It is only in the past that people would say that a director asked an actress for sex in exchange for a movie role. These days, some actresses would reach out to the movie director or producer and tell him that they would do anything just to be in the film.
The movie maker said that, aside from acting, he was passionate about music. Stressing that he could have become a singer, he urged his fans to keep their fingers crossed as he could decide to launch a music career anytime. “ I would have been a musician if I was not acting, I still sing for myself. If God wants me to go into music, then it will happen,” he said.
Currently working on his latest film project, Mokalik, which means mechanic in English. Kunle however dismissed the rumour that he sent his child to train as a mechanic apprentice because he wanted to promote his new movie.
“I don’t do publicity stunt. Who wants to know me, do I care? I don’t. When I came to the mechanic workshop to fix my car one day, I remembered that back in the days, people bring their kids to learn the craft.
“In the mechanic workshop, there is the rewire, mechanic, upholstery experts and others. So I felt that he could learn a lot from them. I told him about the idea and I took his sister to a tailor’s shop to learn the craft as well”.
Afolayan also talked about his motivation to shoot Mokalik. He said the aim is to tell the world that education should not be limited to the four walls of a classroom.
“I am not shooting this as a commercial film, I am targeting Oscars and that is why it is an indigenous film. This is a story close to my heart,” the film maker said.
