The project features several movie stars including Kunle Remi, Faithia Williams, Sola Sobowale and Bimbo Ademoye.

In ‘Anikulapo’, Afolayan examines issues surrounding rebirth of identity in Africa by exploring different perspectives about the concept.

In an Instagram post, the filmmaker revealed that shooting of the movie had been concluded.


The development comes a few weeks after she graduated with a first-class after completing her master’s degree at the University of Lagos (UNILAG).

She bagged a distinction (4.63/5.0) in African and Diaspora Studies, emerging as the best graduating student from the Institute of African and Diaspora Studies.

It is understood that the development makes her the first student to bag a distinction from the institute since its establishment in 2017.

Adedoja won the 2020/2021 edition of the Miss Oyo beauty pageant.
