Lagos -"I don't respond to such. He's irrelevant," was Kunle Afolayan's reply to Emeka Ike who had indirectly insulted the award winning actor and director.
In a recent interview with TVC Entertainment, AGN President Emeka Ike spoke on quality of films in Nollywood.
Making reference to Kunle Afolayan, Ike said that there is nothing special about making a 'great movie' with 200 million naira.
"Don't tell me Kunle Afolayan is making a fantastic movie," he said. "You gave him 200 million Naira for crying out loud. The entire industry has not even used 200 million before now to make movies for God's sake now. So if you give a dunce that money, he can get the best producer. So it's not a fantastic thing, you are not making me feel oppressed."
