Actor Kunle Remi and media personality Toke Makinwa have engaged in a light banter over Saro, a character played by the former in Kunle Afolayan’s movie Anikulapo.
The drama started after Kunle’s love interest Bimbo Ademoye threw a question to her fans concerning her character in the movie.
Anikulapo is the story of Saro, (played by Kunle Remi) a travelling clothe weaver, who was beaten to death for having an affair with the Alaafin’s youngest wife named Arolake played by Bimbo.
A mystical bird brings him back to life, leaving behind a gourd with the power to raise the dead.
Kunle and Bimbo became a trending topic on social media following their performances in the movie which many have described as “challenging and “well interpreted”.
Others, however, opined that Arolake deserved more and was not smart enough because she let herself become a victim instead of using the magical powder she gave to Saro after he “betrayed” her.
On Monday, an inquisitive Bimbo took to Instagram to engage her followers in light banter, asking them to share thoughts about which character was actually the victim.
She wrote: “Guys quick one, who is the victim? Saro or Arolake? Because I’m seeing some tweets saying fear women. Fear women, fear women how? So over to you guys, if you feel Arolake is the bad guy please comment ‘fear women’. If you think it’s Saro please comment ‘men are scum.’”
As expected, several celebrities and fans stormed the comment section of the post to share their thoughts. While some supported Arolake, others threw their weight behind Saro.
Media personality Toke Makinwa wrote: “You dey trust man? Adam? Adam?”
Responding to her statement, Kunle Remi wrote: “Adam no trust Eve? No be there wahala start?”
“Not at all, he should learn to control himself,” Toke responded.
