I hardly watch regular Nollywood movies – Kunle Afolayan speaks candidly
Kunle Afolayan hardly watch Nollywood movies – or badly done movies – and he has his reasons.
In an interview with TheCable, the filmmaker and actor candidly said he hardly watch bad movies because he’s keen on watching movies that will challenge him and change his orientation about certain things.
He said, “…Truth be told, I hardly watch them because I am keen on watching movies that will challenge me and change my orientation about certain things. My children watch them a lot and that does not make them speak bad English.”
Afolayan made the statement while responding to a question on his take on badly subtitled movies shown in Nigeria.
“Sincerely, you can’t find that in my movies but even in Hollywood you see few of such. We have several filmmakers and don’t forget there are grades in movie productions. Is that not Odunlade Adekola, Femi Adebayo winning awards? They have their market and their market loves their movies irrespective of the blunders made during subtitling. They put it on Africa Magic. So why didn’t they vet it before showing it. The people watching it don’t have a problem; it is us the elite that has all the time to see this,” he said
