Filmmaker Kunle Afolayan has enlisted Haitian actor Jimmy Jean-Louis for another Netflix project after featuring him in The CEO and Temi Otedola’s debut film Citation.
The filmmaker announced this in an Instagram post on Tuesday with a video showing the other cast of the film which includes Bimbo Akintola, Sharon Ooja and Bolaji Ogunmola.
Kunle said the upcoming project will serve “As the third instalment this year, following the captivating “IJOGBON” and the epic “ANIKULAPO SERIES: Rise of The Specter.”
“Our latest production is sure to leave you eagerly anticipating what’s to come.
“We’re keeping the details of this project under wraps for now, but rest assured, something extraordinary is in the making. The wheels are already in motion, and we can’t wait to unveil this mysterious yet promising endeavour,” the award-winning director added.
Citation also features actress Joke Silva, Ini Edo, experienced broadcaster-turned-actor, Sadiq Daba, and actor Gabriel Afolayan among others.
Written by Golden Effects Pictures’ long-standing screenwriter, Tunde Babalola, Citation tells the story of Moremi Oluwa, a fun-loving 21-year-old student on campus in Nigeria. Incensed at being ill-treated by a trendy university don, Lucien N’Dyare, she drags him before the University Senate. The ensuing intrigues define Moremi’s word against that of the respected academic, in a male-dominated bastion.
