Multiple award-winning director and producer, Kunle Afolayan has become Nollywood‘s first Air France ambassador. At an event held earlier today at the airline’s Victoria Island, Lagos office, the Golden Effects Studios boss signed a partnership agreement with the company.
The partnership which will run until the end of next year, at least, will see Afolayan becoming the brand’s ambassador while the airline will be partners on his upcoming film projects. An excited Afolayan told TNS, “They [Air France] invited me, we discussed several possibilities and they said ‘hey we love what you do and we would like to fly with it’ and that was it.“
Arthur Dieffenthaler, Air France’s Commercial Director expressed the company’s excitement at being able to finally partner with a Nollywood filmmaker after identifying Afolayan’s works as being “of international quality.”
