The filmmaker talks extensively on why he avoids collaborating in Nollywood during a session with made the Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF). The session which was centered on producing Nollywood blockbusters had film executives like Mo Abudu and Bolanle Austen-Peters.
According to Kunle, he prefers to stick with like minds. Collaborating with Nollywood comes with too many dramas which he doesn’t want.
“For me, I take my time, I don’t like problems. We all share different visions sometimes as creatives and the way we think is also very different,” the filmmaker said.
“I don’t like to just talk to money bags. I don’t want someone who is just going to say what does it cost to make a film? I don’t like those things and those are the kind of things you get. Tunde Kelani and I have partnered on several levels. In fact, the last two films I was part of it as EP and actor. I collaborate with people who speak the same language.”
The 47-year-old award winning movie producer has collaborated with veteran filmmaker, Tunde Kelani to produce top rated movies and most recently, Ayinla.
