Applause. Kunle Afolayan’s art has gone full circle with the latest work! 

I have watched the movie critically twice in the last 24 hours and all I can say is that there’s still more ground to be covered in the plot. Anyone wishing for solid storytelling with subplots, serial conflict, tension, and denouement may be disappointed. Also, for cinematic storytelling where more emphasis is on the camera perspectives rather than the dialogue, one may not be too impressed. 

Be that as it may, the pictures are great and meticulously delivered using several lighting techniques for the night indoor and outdoor scenes including the cinematic highlight of the movie: the 2-second moonlit semi-nude love-making scene featuring Kunle Remi (Saro aka Anikulapo) and the enigmatic Bimbo Ademoye (Arolake). The ambient sound is epic. As a realist, I am a great admirer of natural subjects in motion pictures. Kudos to Kunle for the daring shots. I am particularly happy that he has not stopped theorising with his directorial prowess. I do criticise him on this. But he appears to be more settled on his subjects with this latest work. The colour grading and soundtracks are perfect. The transition and continuity need some work. Mixing day and night shots in one scene should not be in KAP’s work. 

Comparatively, like the Figurine (contemporary) and October 1 (historic), Anikulapo (epic) is a movie well shot. The props are fantastic, and the costumes are well above average given the materials at his disposal and the creative ingenuity of the set designer. The VFX (visual effect) of the mythological Akalamagbo bird is typically poor for today’s cinematic experience and well-exposed audience. In my opinion, Femi Adebayo’s most recent epic (Agesinkole – also streaming on Amazon Prime) with the VFX (of the snake character) is more compelling. But the movie also fails to highlight iconic shots (e.g., the beheading and horse racing) for a better cinematic experience. Nollywood does sometimes waste shots on unnecessary aerial (drone) shots for transition multiple times in a movie. The casts in Anikulapo are generally above average. Yoruba ace actors from Ibadan movie school will always deliver on dialogue. Nevertheless, Aisha, Ronke and Sola Shobowale stand out in their linguistic performance thereby increasing the scorecard for the Lagos school on dialogue and delivery. The rookies with speaking roles can therefore be excused, including Sewa Afolayan.

Yes, the striking resemblance between Moji Afolayan and Sewa will never go unnoticed. Such a hairy family! Last but not least, Princess Adedoja’s beauty is well expressed in the role. I say welcome to the industry to Sewa and Princess.

Review by Prof. Sheriff Folarin

On Kunle Afolayan’s “Anikulapo”

The harsh critique Kunle Afolayan’s “Anikulapo” has received in recent times, made me to break one of my rules- see a movie on Netflix. Aside comedy skits on YouTube and Instagram, which I sometimes see with my family or before going to bed late at night when alone, I consider opening the Netflix or movie tubes as forbidden for me. 

After seeing that movie, I have come to the conclusion that our people either do not understand the context of the movie or that they simply wish the flick had elements of their own fantasies. Some reviews I have seen are rather harsh and condemn the story for misleading the viewing public about the majesty, sanctity and canopy of Oyo Alafin or the mystical political headquarters of Yorubaland. 

They go further to contend that the transactional relationship between the “Olori” (the king’s wife) and Saro (Anikulapo) is an aberration, for the fact that the Yoruba king’s wife cannot be that cheap and that the real Oyo (or whatever the Yoruba empire is) and the king’s palace were too fortified for a common trader or stranger to be able to grab her and make out in a common bush or right inside the king’s palace. In addition, they say Gbongan isn’t the hub of cloth-making  as depicted in the film. For those critics therefore, “Anikulapo” is nonsense, and is described as cheap, mediocre and a disservice to the Yoruba culture or the majesty of Oyo. 

While the submissions above may be true if indeed the movie is an attempt to tell the story of Oyo, the arguments above will be balderdash if the critics understood the context of that movie. First, ”Anikulapo” that I watched has nothing to do with telling any story or constructing any history about the old Oyo empire or any Yoruba kingdom. Kunle Afolayan himself hasn’t pretended that he’s presenting any historical movie. It’s neither about Oyo, Ife, Osogbo, Ibadan; nor is it about any of the landmark events in Yoruba history. It’s just another beautiful movie with a fantastic storyline. It is a FICTION, not even a faction. 

“Anikulapo” appears to simply be a movie with a storyline about a fortunate young man who is fancied by powerful women and members of the kingdoms he finds himself. He is a beloved trader who finds favor in the eye of the queen and other women. His intransigence with the queen is however found out and he’s banished and nearly killed. An encounter with the mystics aided by his wife led him to posses powers to raise people from the dead. He becomes so famous, rich and powerful that he begins to carry his shoulders too high. This, coupled with his love triangle occasioned by greed for women, makes him to hurt his first wife (the former queen) so badly. The former queen has to leave her life of affluence to follow Saro, just for the sake of love. Saro doesn’t reciprocate this and only uses her for other ends- women. 

Saro’s main nemesis is women, which forces his wife to leave him; however, knowing the secret of his resurrection powers, she destroys it without his knowledge and flees the town. A grand attempt by Saro to demonstrate this power fails woefully, particularly after disrespecting the king and his people who have been so nice to him. He places an impossible demand on the monarch as a condition for raising the crown prince from the dead. After three wives already, he wants the king’s daughter before he can raise the dead prince. But this fails as his first wife has emptied the amulet of the magical powers. His failure leads to his ultimate and fatal fall. 

This is a beautiful storyline that teaches several moral lessons that are common in Yorubaland: gratitude, contentment, humility and loyalty/faithfulness to one’s loving spouse. The message is a strong one. The costumes, creative scenes and constructed locations are out of this world. Kunle Afolayan reconstructed a typical 18th century Yoruba kingdom by the splendiferous work of art. The cast is grade A and the acting is flawless. It’s a high-budget film. Suspense-filled and dramatic through and through, this is one movie that should make the Oscars someday.

So much as this professor said is true.

But trust me,

I’ll always discover flaws and my stance against the movie remain firm!

The best adage to qualify the movie is…”ibi ti a ba ro pe ati ma ba ogbon, ta ba ba ago nnbe, a ma dunni”

With the hype and trailer of the movies , we all expected better!! We expected to see more than mere 18th century buildings and costumes. 

Anikulapo have a shitty story line!

A story line not befitting the ‘reconstructed 18th century yoruba kingdom’

….or budget that expensive for God’s sake😩

There was a very popular movie *“SAWOROIDE”*

It is at least popular to people over 25 yrs old…

Pa. Adebayo Faleti starred in the movie,

You need to see the joy in my parents eyes whenever they discuss the movie!

They discuss it As if it happened and it’s not just a Movie

Baba wande and other big actors were also in the movie,

That’s the characteristic of a good movie!! 


I could list 10 movies that farrr portrayed the “18th century Yoruba kingdom” better

The story line was soo blank, obvious and useless without any major lesson it teaches anyone!

Who doesn’t know the saying - money makes man mad??

Take an example of a GOOD movie …about a very brilliant lecturer who happened to be an atheist🌚

I.e someone that doesn’t believe in the existence of God

Something happened One day on his way to Lagos which changed his perception about life..

In order not to offend Atheists and their belief.., the movie never said God did anything, cos the story Wright wasn’t even sure 

He accidentally stepped something and was plunged into another realm.., not spiritual realm or anything…he found himself in the past…in a time when humans just left the stone age and just started wearing clothes…

With primitive Yoruba language!!

Hell!! You need to see how they speak the Yoruba 🥺🥺😭

This is pre-18th century setting o,

The movie depicted 3 different time settings, past present and the future.., all with accurate dates and facts,

Mind you, it was a fiction o!!

IF any movie deserves an oscer, it is that movies, “ Aye tun tun”

Our expectoration and standard for a GOOD movie differs and I respect other people opinion

My own opinion remains that Anikulapo is not worth the hype.
