Nollywood actor, Kunle Afolayan, so far in almost all his movies has tried to ensure that he maintains a particular style which is telling his stories the African way.

The actor and producer in a recent interview explained that his style of movies is deliberate attempts towards ensuring that the story is well told the African and also the culture is preserved.

Kunle pointed out that there is need to start documenting the various works of the art so as to enable the next generation to learn as the culture and languages are beginning to fade away.

While speaking with Tribune on his pattern of movie which is mostly African in nature he said, “Well, it is deliberate, that is who I am because I can't sell the British, American, Greek or Italian culture. I can only sell what I know and what I am part of so that when questions are being raised, I will be able to defend and justify my work.

“It is more of being proud of who you are, and that is what I do and for posterity and the sake of the unborn children. We need to start documenting all of these things because to a large extent the culture is fading; children are not speaking our languages anymore.”
