By Charles Mgbolu

Even before it is released in the market, the much talked about film October 1, produced and directed by celebrated film maker and actor, Kunle Afolayan has won the Fiction Film Trailer Award category of the International Movie Trailers Festival Awards 2013.


An excited post on the official Facebook page of the film made the announcement recently “We did it! October 1 Trailer Won the best Fiction film trailer at the International Movie trailers festival.”

Kunle later on said”. What a way to wrap year 2013.  I’m happy about this award. It’s not about the money but the recognition of the  hardwork, the efforts of the cast and crew of October 1.  It is a pointer to the fact that the film has great potentials to go places when it is eventually released. I can’t wait to see the complete film in 2014.”

The movie sees veteran actor and broadcaster Sadiq Daba play lead character Inspector Dan Waziri. Deola Sagoe of Haute couture plays the legendary Funmilayo Ransom Kuti. Others are Ibrahim Chatta, David Bailey, Kehinde Bankole and more.
