Veteran actor and filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan has responded to comments stirred up by a video posted by his brother, Aremu Afolayan. The actor shared a post on Instagram denying assumptions that he was the one in the video.

His brother, Aremu Afolayan took to his Instagram page on Sunday, November 11, 2018, to share a video, decrying the corruption suffered by Nigerians, and blaming the government and the airport authorities. This was after his experience at the airport and after witnessing the poor treatment being meted on a young Nigerian.

In response to the controversy, Kunle posted on Instagram, saying;

”Good morning all,

I have been receiving a lot of calls and comments from people who are mistaking me for Aremu Afolayan in regards to this video.

”I would like to officially state that this is not Kunle Afolayan, he is my brother, not me.

There is frustration in the land but hey! Thank you.


His initial response however raised criticisms and questions of allegiance to his brother. However, Kunle Afolayan edited his post, later on, saying;

” For clarity purpose. I think it is imperative I clear the air.

Aremu Afolayan is the one in this video and not Kunle Afolayan.

People have been responding to the video and tagging my handles as I have also received some calls.

Oloun a so’lu dero.
