Nollywood actress, Bimbo Ademoye, has responded to critics following her controversial role in the latest Kunle Afolayan’s movie ‘Anikulapo’.
Naija News earlier reported that the movie tells the story of Saro, (played by Kunle Remi) a travelling clothes weaver, who was beaten to death for having an affair with the Alaafin’s youngest wife named Arolake (Bimbo Admoye)
A mystical bird brings him back to life, leaving behind a gourd with the power to raise the dead.
Bimbo was applauded for her amazing role interpretation in the movie, however, some people faulted her for allowing herself to become a victim instead of using the magical power she gave to Remi who later betrayed her.
Reacting to the criticisms, Bimbo in a post shared on Instagram said she is aware of some of the controversies and reactions her role has generated online.
She further questioned her fans on who is the victim between Saro and Arolake.
She wrote: “Guys , quick question . Who is the victim SARO or AROLAKE? Because I’m seeing some tweets. Saying fear women . Fear women howwwwww. So Over to you guys. If you feel Arolake is the bad guy pls comment “fear women “ If you think it is saro . Pls comment men are scum.”
Bimbo Ademoye, Kunle Remi Ruin ‘Anikulapo’ With Nude Scene
The latest Nigerian movie ‘Anikulapo’ produced by Kunle Afolayan, shows that Yoruba Nollywood is gradually taking the entire industry to greater heights.
Unarguably, ‘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.
