Speaking on the repeated snub from the Nigeria Oscars Selection Committee, Afolayan stated that he did not understand the committee’s decision not to pick his movie for the Oscars.
“I don’t even care about it anymore. I don’t understand the decision, and quite a number of the guys in there are people I’d call friends. For the second year running, they’re saying no film from Nigeria deserves to be presented – it makes no sense.
“Honestly, I’m over it because if Aníkúlápó weren’t successful, they’d have said it wasn’t picked because of that reason. Now, it’s almost like, ‘How couldn’t you have presented this?’”
Last week, Afolayan expressed optimism over the decision of the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences to give the NOSC another chance to make a submission for the 2023 Oscars award.
However, the committee failed to pick any Nigerian movie as they maintained that none was eligible.
