The latest Nigerian movie ‘Anikulapo’ produced by veteran filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan, shows that Yoruba Nollywood is gradually taking the entire industry to greater heights.
HausaToday reports that ‘Anikulapo’ is a fantastic piece of work with beautiful props and costumes and its scenery is extremely inviting and pleasing.
Some netizens said the movie would have been perfect for moonlight tales and educational stories for children as the lessons centred on greed, unfortunately, the two lead characters, Bimbo Ademoye and Kunle Remi ruined it with what many termed ‘unnecessary nude’ scenes.
The movie had a scene where the youngest wife of the Alaafin (Bimbo) raped Saro (Kunle), a travelling clothes weaver.
Also, the duo took off their clothes to have sex with Bimbo’s breasts and Kunle’s buttock showing clearing in the scene.
Although the movie is rated 18+, many Nigerians expressed displeasure over the nude scene stating it was totally unnecessary for such beautiful work.
