Kunle Afolayan has been in Nollywood for over 18 years. And he has done incredibly well in a space that has swallowed those before him.
This is why the Peugeot and Air France ambassador is all but thankful by releasing a video of his Ire mansion that everyone is talking about along with a message that would give any hardworking dreamer a chance to believe that anything and everything is possible.
For the first time ever, the movie director is showing off his multi-million naira two-level Mediterranean mansion in Lagos. The palatial house stands on more than three plots of land and is protected from the serene environment by a high fence.
The house itself has a rooftop deck which looks out on a family size swimming pool and a large parking space that proudly holds an antique car.
“Some people may see this as show off but the wise will see beyond the surface,” the ‘October 1’ movie producer and actor said, noting, “My main motive of putting this video out is firstly, to appreciate the goodness of God in my life but majorly to use it as a medium to minister and encourage every hardworking Nigerian out there.”
Last October, Afolayan concluded the shooting of his much-anticipated movie, The CEO, which tells the story of a company – TransWire Communications – whose CEO nominates five employees for a leadership programme. The most impressive eventually replaces him as the new CEO. And last week, he held a private screening for the press and a selected crowd.
Now, he is taking a break from work. Here, he talks about hard work and success, and having to live in Nigeria like his counterparts in the United States, because really, a hardworker deserved all the happiness life can give.
Read his full note and watch the clip:
Hmmmm! Some people may see this as show off but the wise will see beyond the surface . My main motive of putting this video out is firstly, To appreciate the goodness of God in my life but majorly to use it as a medium to minister and encourage every hardworking Nigerian out there that if you put your mind to what you believe in, be realistic in your approach and deal with people with one mind then you are surely not far from your goal and you surely will get there even though it may take time. The dream of an average Nigerian in entertainment industry is to live like the well to do American artist (Beverly hills). Let us all work towards building our own Beverly hills in Nigeria. I say thank you to God and all you fans out there for your tremendous support thus far and I pray and wish everyone of us our heart desires. I desired this and I got it, surely you can too. Ire
