Kunle Afolayan Unveils Plans to Hold the First Ever In-Flight Movie Premiere for “The CEO”




Frontline actor, producer and director, Kunle Afolayan held a 45-minute screening of his new movie, ‘The CEO’ to members of the press, fans, friends and sponsors at the Silverbird Cinemas in Ikeja City Mall, Lagos on Wednesday, May 11th 2016.

At the screening, he shared the first-of-its-kind plans for the release of his movie and reasons behind his choice.

According to him,

“Come June 1st 2016, we shall be having the first-of-its-kind premiere of The CEO aboard Air France to Paris, France. This special premiere will begin with a Red Carpet show at the Check-In Counter at the Muritala Mohammed International Airport. There shall be the best of media coverage from partners such as Africa magic, Silverbird Television and other broadcast and print media who have shown us tremendous support from the past.

For our sponsors, partners, the cast and crew of The CEO and those accredited to attend Nollywood Week Paris, the fun continues with a Cocktail Party at the Boarding Gate. We will run a red carpet into the plane. Thereafter, the movie will be screened onboard the plane where other passengers will partake in the show. It is going to be a complete event show with the usual razzmatazz. Just imagine an After Party happening 35,000ft to 40,000ft above the sea level. It is sure going to be a unique experience. It is also good to know that our fans will be waiting for us in Paris where the film has been slated for a special premiere at the Nollywood Week Paris, taking place from June 2nd to 5th at the popular Cinema l’Arlequin.”

Here’s a look at the trailer!

    The trailer looks awesome. I love the way Africa is going higher and higher as a continent with entrepreneurs in Nigeria at the forefront. Wish my country could do same.

    I beg e stop all these nollywood talk. Kunle afolayan is not a nollywood producer, he is either a hollywood film maker or a kunle wood film maker. He is in his own class.
    Oga na master.
