Anikulapo director and veteran actor Kunle Afolayan has given an explanation for why he chose his daughter Eyiyemi Afolayan for the role of Princess Omowunmi following the huge success of his most recent film.
The part demanded someone gorgeous, and Kunle Afolayan’s kid is unquestionably lovely, the actor remarked in a brief video clip he shared on his verified Instagram account on Wednesday. The young person, he continued, is also a talented singer in addition to being an acting natural.
The first child of Kunle Afolayan, Eyiyemi made her acting debut on the set of Anikulapo.
“If you want to represent the character of a princess, I think it goes without saying that the individual has to be attractive, and she is lovely,” stated Kunle Afolayan.
“It felt good because I did not have to pay her, even though I was paying her directly or indirectly.”
When asked about her role as Princess Omowunmi in the movie, Eyiyemi said, “Omowunmi is very foolish because Saro never proposed love to her but she already started having ideas in her head. She is beautiful no doubt, but also gullible.”
Kunle Afolayan Productions, commenting on the debut of Eyiyemi said , “Train up a child in the way he should go so that when he is old he won’t depart from it. It is obvious that Kunle Afolayan takes it upon himself to imbibe valuable teachings in his children. Everyone attests to how respectful they are and humble regardless of their father’s societal status.
Not only is Eyiyemi Afolayan a natural at acting, her father attests to the fact that she sings well too, just like her brother Diekoloreoluwa Afolayan – Kunle Afolayan’s second child and first son.”
