Tunde Kelani and Kunle Afolayan Team Up AGAIN for a New Film Project
Veteran Filmaker Tunde Kelani is adding a historic title to his film catalogue! The popular Filmmaker who is known for his undiluted top notch rich cultural Historical movie has several movies to his catalogue such as Thunderbolt, Oleku, Arugba, Saworoide, Ago Eewo and Many More comes with another Cultural Rooted Movie titles Ayinla.
The movie Ayinla is based on the life of the late Apala musician; Ayinla Waheed Yusuf, popularly known as Ayinla Omowura, the legendary filmmaker; Tunde Kelani weaves his latest film titled Àyìnlá around the iconic Yoruba artiste.
This movie captures the odyssey and adventures of Ayinla, a local musical hero and highlights the relevance of his music even after his tragic death.
The movie features Kunle Afolayan as Olabisi Ajala (popularly known as Ajala the traveler) alongside Lateef Adedimeji as Ayinla, Bimbo Manuel, Omowunmi Dada, Ade Laoye, Jumoke Odetola as Kemi Baby to name a few.

Tunde Kelani and Kunle Afolayan’s relationship dates back to his acting debut in Saworoide as Aresejabata which is produced and directed by our role model; Tunde Kelani. Their relationship is no ordinary relationship, but rather a father-son bond which has stood the test of time and has developed into the “ride-or-die” loyalty we see in the movies.
After Kunle Afolayan’s first acting debut in the 1999 movie; Saworoide, he made other appearances in Tunde Kelani’s legendary films; Agogo Ewo (sequel to Saworoide) and Dazzling Mirage as Dotun.
Always trust Uncle TK has is his fondly called o his excellent delivery as we anticipate for the movie.
