Nollywood director Kunle Afolayan took to his Facebook page sometime in March, to express his frustration about Nigeria READ HERE and his plans to relocate as he could no longer bear the hardship.
In a recent interview with Netng, it looks like he’s made up his mind to relocate. The prolific movie director said he has been diagnosed with hypertension and must relocate.
Kunle Afolayan said:
“I have been diagnosed with hypertension, so I should stay here and die because I want to impress people? It isn’t about people anymore. It is now about me and my health. I have proven that certain things can be done in this country but you have to use blood and sweat. All the projects I have done, I have had to use these two. For me to achieve this, whoever is ready to use blood and sweat too might be able to achieve same feat. But we don’t have the same strength. Right now I am overwhelmed in a way and I can function from anywhere. I can go to Hollywood and be lecturing African cinema or go to Gambia and be making film or move to Ghana. I love this country which is why I am still here. I discourage people form traveling abroad but health is wealth. I think it is important that I am in the right frame of mind for health reasons” he said.
