Award-winning film maker, Kunle Afolayan, has declared 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 Restorts & Leisure, Lagos, shooting this bar-raising movie.
The celebrated film maker expressed this optimism last weekend while welcoming the
Chief Executive Officer, Bank of Industry (BoI), Mr. Olaoluwa Rasheed, who stormed the popular Restorts 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 Coat de Voire, Kenya, and South Africa to shoot some scenes soon.
According to him, “ It is no longer about Nigeria. The CEO is about taking Africa to the world.” He thanked the management of the bank for believing in his creativity.
Impressed by what he saw on location, BoI boss said, 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.
