Multiple award-winning filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan, has treated staff of the Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) to a private screening of his latest movie, Mokalik.

The screening of the movie took place on May 3 as part of the company’s Workers Day celebrations.

This is coming weeks before the movie is scheduled to appear in cinemas from May 31s.

Managing director of EKEDC, Adeoye Fadeyibi, and chief legal officer, Wola Joseph, were in attendance.

Kunle Afolayan has been whetting the appetite of fans with trailers and still pictures from the movie in posts on social media.

Mokalik will be distributed by FilmOne distributions.

Shot on Canon EOS C300 Mark II, with a range of Canon Cine lenses, Mokalik is an intriguing story of love and ambition told in a typical Nigerian mechanic workshop.

Kunle’s nephew, Tooni Afolayan, is introduced to Nollywood as Ponmile, an 11-year-old from the middle-class suburbs who spends the day as a lowly apprentice at a mechanic workshop to experience the other side life.

The movie marked pop musician, Simi’s, first appearance in a feature film.

Other actors include Femi Adebayo, Charles Okocha, Faithia Williams, Lateef Oladimeji, Wale Akorede (Okunu), Ayo Ogunshina (Papa Lolo) and Dayo Akinpelu (Alabi Yellow).
