Popular Nollywood movie maker, Kunle Afolayan has pleaded for all the different film-making industries in Nigeria to come together and become one body.
He made the plea at the 20th anniversary celebration of his father’s demise. His father, Adeyemi Afolayan a.k.a Ade Love was also a film-maker.
‘Now we have Nollywood, we have Yoruba, we have this, we have that,’ he stressed.
The Yoruba film-making industry especially has been split into several factions including Association of Nigerian Theatre Arts Practitioners (ANTP), National Association of Nigerian Theatre Arts Practitioners (NANTAP) and Theatre and Motion Picture Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) all claiming to represent the interest of Yoruba creatives.
In attendance at the ceremony includes Dele Odule, Jide Kosoko, Yemi Solade, Lere Paimo and others.
