“We Met All The Criteria Giving To Us By The Oscars”: Kunle Afolayan talks about Anikulapo’s rejection

Famous Nollywood filmmaker Kunle Afolayan recently cried out to complain that his popular movie Anikulapo was rejected by the Oscars despite it satisfying all of the criteria provided for it.

Kunle Afolayan slammed the Nigerian Oscar committee in a tweet he shared on his Twitter handle after his latest movie Anikulapo was rejected.

Kunle Afolayan explained that he and his team ensured they met all the criteria given to them, and even Netflix was involved and agreed that the movie could go to the cinemas before it was released on the streaming platform.

Afolayan revealed that the committee is composed of a 15-member team when asked how the committee decides which movies get submitted. And when they were to decide on Anikulapo, it went to a vote, and 8 members of the committee voted against it, and that was how the movie was rejected.

When Kunle was asked to give an estimated value of what it cost to produce Anikulapo, he said that bringing all of his ideas for the film to life cost him a lot of money.
