    Epic Film, ‘Anikulapo’ to be Released on Netflix September 30, Same Day as Afolayan’s Birthday


    Recently, Netflix release the thrilling trailer of a period film titled ‘Anikulapo’.

    The much awaited Kunle Afolayan’s epic movie, ‘Anikulapo’ will be premiere on Netflix on September 30, the same day as Afolayan’s birthday.

    Afolayan took to his Instagram page on Thursday to release photos of the casts and announced that all is now ready for the release of the movie.

    He wrote: “Storytelling is the force that binds us together, fueling emotions and lending an ear to the lips that tell the untold tales and hidden stories.

    He wrote: “Storytelling is the force that binds us together, fueling emotions and lending an ear to the lips that tell the untold tales and hidden stories.

    “Finding your identity in an unknown culture is possible because we are all humans after all and though you can’t relate to the beliefs and ways of life of a said people, you can understand their pain, emotions, and feelings (if only told well)

    “Anikulapo – he who has death in his pouch, tells the story of love, hate, deceit, jealousy, and covetousness, you’ll feel the intrigue, suspense, anger, and empathy.”

    He added that “In less than 24 hours, you’ll experience the power of love, the pride that goes before a fall and the abuse of power.

    “The story’s originality, the rarity of the storytelling technique, and the actors’ professionalism will have you on the edge of your seat.”

    According to Afolayan, “There’s no other movie you should plan to see on the 30th of September 2022 – tomorrow, rather than Anikulapo.

    “Find out how the power of love works out the impossible, how death collects what its owed, how deceit betrays trust, how love turns to resentment, resentment to hate and eventually, destroys all the parties involved. Pride they say goes before a fall and no man is infallible. Watch learn, and enjoy… Ire!”

    Anikulapo comes 8 months after Afolayan’s last film, A Naija Christmas, which was released in December last year. Kunle Remi, one of the lead actors in A Naija Christmas, plays the main character, Saro/Anikulapo, in Anikulapo.






    Anikulapo’s cast includes Toyin Afolayan, Sola Sobowale, Adebayo Salami, Faithia Williams, Bimbo Ademoye, Ronke Oshodi-Oke, Sunday Omobolanle, Hakeem Kae-Kazim, Taiwo Hassan, Dele Odule, Adewale Adeoye, Aisha Lawal, Mr Macaroni, Ikorodu Bois.

    Afolayan reached an agreement with Netflix last March that will have the director make three films for the streaming platform. Anikulapo is the second of the three films. The first, Swallow, was released in October last year. The third film, whose name is yet to be disclosed, has been described as a character drama.

    Afolayan is famous for having directed the films October 1 (2014), Irapada (2006), The Figurine (2009), among others.
