Kunle Afolayan Responds To Criticism Of Dance Video With Daughter

Nigeria’s veteran actor and filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan, has responded to the recent social media criticism he received over a video that surfaced online, featuring him dancing with his daughter, Eyiyemi.

News About Nigeria reported that the video sparked a debate on social media, with some expressing disapproval of the dance moves, while others defended the father-daughter interaction.

In a post on his Instagram page, Kunle Afolayan addressed the criticisms with a collage video of himself, adding Phyno’s ‘Do I’ song, which is about not caring about people’s opinions.

In his caption, he stated that he identifies as a king and a child of the Most High.

The post read, “I am a King! I am a child of the most high! You can only try. Love surpasses everything. Do I look like …”

The actor left the last sentence incomplete, leaving netizens curious about the intended message.

The dance video in question captured Kunle Afolayan and his daughter, Eyiyemi, dancing together at the premiere after-party of his long-awaited series, “Anikulapo: The Rise of the Spectre.”

The after-party video, featuring Kunle Afolayan dancing with his eldest daughter, Eyiyemi, was criticised online, with some netizens tagging the dance ‘inappropriate’.

The premiere, held over the weekend, brought together notable actors, including Sola Sobowale, Lateef Adedimeji, Mo Bimpe, Bimbo Ademoye, singer D’Banj, Tunde Kelani, and others.

While the event celebrated the launch of Kunle Afolayan’s six-part series, attention shifted to the dance moment between the filmmaker and his daughter.

Online users expressed discomfort with the dance, likening it to moves shared by romantic partners.

Critics slammed Afolayan for engaging in such a dance with his daughter, tagging it inappropriate and questioning his judgement.
