The new movie, written by Tunde Babalola, would be directed by the veteran actor himself — who will act as the director and producer simultaneously.

Afolayan, son of the late Adeyemi Afolayan, famous actor, film director and producer, is widely reputed for his ability to produce movies with culturally relevance.

Details on the cast and release date are yet to be released.
