Why I Featured My Daughter In Anikulapo


The veteran actor who posted a short clip of himself and daughter via his Instagram page on October 19, 2022, stated that he assigned the role to his daughter because the role required somebody who is beautiful, and his daughter is not only beautiful but is also a good singer as well as acting.

Eyiyemi is Kunle Afolayan’s first child, and she made her debut appearance as an actor on the set of Anikulapo.

“If you want to portray the role of a princess, I think there is no giving that the person has to be beautiful, and she is beautiful.

“It felt good because I did not have to pay her, even though I was paying her directly or indirectly.” Afolayan said

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.”
