October 1 according to Kunle Afolayan is a thought-provoking movie that isn’t solely about entertaining viewers but serves to communicate important national messages. “We want the younger generation to know where we are coming from and the older generation to see if we are moving in the right direction,” adds Mr Afolayan. He went on to thank the cast for doing a fantastic job in delivering this utterly compelling movie.
 
According to Bolanle Austen-Peters, MD of Terra Kulture “it is exciting to know that the entire film and production was done in Nigeria, with a world class content as seen in October 1, we were proud to partner in promoting it.”
 
 
Notable faces spotted at the event included art patron, Chief Rasheed Gbadamosi, CEO Nigerian Export Promotion Council, Segun Awolowo, MD Standard Chartered Bank, Bola Adesola, MD, Leadway Assurance, Mr. Oye Hassan-Odukale, Consul General Of France, Francois Sastourne, Consul General Of South Africa, Ambassador & Mrs Mokgethi Monaisa, Executive Director, Bank Of Industry, Mr. Waheed Olagunju, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Mo Abudu, Ruth Osime, Noble Igwe among many others.
 
“October 1 is a top Nigerian export product with the potential to grab an Oscar award’’, adds Segun Awolowo, CEO NEPC.
 
The exclusive private screening of October 1 was well received by guests who were held spell bound in nostalgia as the movie took the audience back to life during colonial Nigeria. Set in September 1960, against the backdrop of the impending national independence, a northern Nigerian police detective, Dan Waziri was urgently dispatched by the colonial government to the western town of Akote to solve a series of female murders that had gripped the local community in fear.
 
More killings occured as Waziri got into the town, leading to the climatic end where the life of the popular female teacher, Tawa is held in balance. Waziri races to save Tawa, capture the killer and solve the crime before the British flag is lowered and the Nigerian flag raised on Independence Day, October 1.
 
The movie written by Tunde Babalola and directed by Kunle Afolayan will be premiering in major cinemas across Nigeria soon.

Kunle said he is considering leaving. He never said he was definitely leaving.
