Nollywood Actor and Award-winning film maker, Kunle Afolayan, recently revealed that his upcoming film, “The CEO,” will definitely lead a revolution in African cinema when it finally hits the box office.
Afolayan and his cast and crew are currently on location at the popular Inagbe Grand Resorts & Leisure, Lagos, shooting this bar-raising movie.
The celebrated film maker expressed this optimism last weekend while welcoming the Chief Executive Officer of the Bank of Industry (BoI), Mr Olaoluwa Rasheed, who stormed the popular Resorts to show solidarity as well as to boost the morale of the production team. The bank is one of the major financiers of the project.
Sharing their experience on location, Afolayan hinted that the team will be moving to Cote d’ivoire, Kenya, and South Africa to shoot some scenes soon.
Kunle Afolayan said, “It is no longer about Nigeria. The CEO is about taking Africa to the world.”
He also thanked the management of the bank for believing in his creativity.
BoI boss who was impressed by what he saw on location also said that the bank is proud to be associated with Afolayan whom he described as a pace-setter in the movie industry in Africa.
“The same way we visit our customers. We thought we should come and see the production crew, and the cast. Based on what we have just seen, we are convinced that The CEO is going to be a hugely successful movie,” he concluded.
