The father of Nollywood juggernaut, Kunle Afolayan, and legendary filmmaker, Adeyemi Afolayan, is back – well, sort of.
Adeyemi Afolayan (Ade Love) is set to resurrect in screens across the country this December, two decades after his shocking death on December 30, 1996.
Kunle Afolayan is done upgrading the footage of his father’s 1980s classics, Taxi Driver, Taxi Driver 2 and Kadara, which are all set to screen next month.
Kadara will screen at an event honoring Ade Love on December 15 at the National Theatre, Lagos. Then all three movies will screen at a celebration of the filmmaker’s life in Kwara on December 27.
Kadara is a charming movie that follows the story of rivalry between a handsome and endearing farmer and a brutish man of considerable wealth for the hand of the most beautiful princess in the entire kingdom.
