Popular filmmaker and actor, Kunle Afolayan, has disclosed that he is currently erecting a multi-million film village in Oyo state.

Afolayan made the disclosure at the launch of Ibaka TV App by Blessed Idornigie and Kazeem Adeoti in Lagos.

Speaking on his next project weeks after launching an entertainment hub in Ikeja, Lagos, the renowned film director revealed that the film village will be commissioned on or before 2022.

“Currently, I am building a film village in Oyo state. It’s actually in Itesiwaju federal constituency, where Hon. Shina Peller currently represents at the National Assembly.

“I am not one who waits for the government, I do my thing and the government can come in and discuss after seeing what we have done. What we have done is very massive and we look at completing it before or by 2022,” Afolayan said.
