“Nothing Can Stop Me From Giving My Best”- Kunle Afod Replies Yoruba Movie Marketers


September 30, 2016

Prior to the initial report from Yorubamoviegist.com yesterday, star actor, Kunle Afod has given us his own side of the story barely 24 hours after.

According to him, “It is with great displeasure and utmost disbelief that I read on a certain blog that I have been sanctioned by (YOVIPMAN), The accusations in the write up are beyond preposterous.

I was accused of involving myself in unethical practices.

I have consulted my lawyers and the law will definitely take its course in due time but I will like to put a few things on record first.

One, I am not a member of YOVIPMAN, and therefore not bound by the ethics of YOVIPMAN, it’s therefore impossible to be bound by the ethics of an association I don’t belong to.
Two, In any market in the world the manufactures chooses his sales outlet.  It definitely doesn’t appeal too logic that a customer dictates to the manufacturer who he supplies his goods to.

Three, we had no prior arrangements as regards who I work or do not work with. Do you get punished for an offense you do not commit?

I want to make this abundantly clear, that I, Adekunle Afod will never do anything to truncate the growth of this industry. There are several other producers who sell to the online community why was I the only one sanctioned.

This is a misguided witch hunt and I refuse to be a victim I know and I believe that injustice to one is injustice to all in the words of a great poet;
“When they came for the buddist

I didn’t talk because I wasn’t a buddist

When they came for the christains

I didn’t talk because I wasn’t a christain

When they came for the moslems

I didn’t talk because I wasn’t a moslem

When they came for me

There was nobody to left to speakme”

I expect all stakeholders to stand up and speak up against this flagrant act of disregard for a movie maker of my repute’s rights but then again,  it has always been all man for himself.
I will like to assure my fans and friends that nothing will stop me from giving them the best of me.

In fact expect more. We shall see this through. We await legal action.
But as we we’re taught in theatre
