Movie producer, Kunle Afolayan has explained why he casted his daughter, Eyiyemi as a princess in his latest project, Anikulapo.
In an interview with KAPTV, Afolayan said that the character of Princess Omowunmi needs someone who is beautiful.
He said, “If you want to portray a princess, I think there’s no giving that the person has to be beautiful. And she’s beautiful. It felt good because at least, I didn’t have to pay her; even though I was paying her directly or indirectly
Speaking on her role, Afolayan’s young daughter described Princess Omowunmi as beautiful yet foolish and quite gullible.
“Omowunmi is very foolish one. Because, I mean Saro never proposed love to her but she already started having ideas in her head.
“Omowunmi, she’s beautiful no doubt and she’s gullible,” Eyiyemi said.
The movie, Anikulapo is currently topping the Netflix weekly global chart as the most viewed non-English Netflix original movie.
