Kunle Afolayan’s movie, ‘The CEO,’ recently premiered aboard an Air France flight to Paris following a successful outing at the just concluded of Nollywood Week Film Festival (NWFF) in Paris.
It was a flight of jubilation and commendation as Afolayan expressed gratitude to all who supported the work, particular the Bank of Industry (BoI) for providing the loan through its BoI NollyFund, with which the movie was produced.
Afolayan said: “I took a loan of N50million from the bank to fund this film and this was made possible by these people,” said Afolayan, as he invited BoI’s Mr. Babatunde Joseph and Mrs. Cynthia Nwuka to the podium during the curtain call at the Cinema L’Arlequin, Paris, venue of NWFF.
With the film billed to show in cinemas beginning July 15, Afolayan advised filmmakers in the Diaspora to avail themselves the opportunity of producing high budget quality films by exploring facilities available as he did.
Babatunde said: “Coming here has proved beyond reasonable doubt that we took a wise decision in supporting this project. I never knew that when we started the journey it’s going to be a trail blazer. This is indeed a remarkable adventure and we are glad that we are a part of it.”
The premier was witnessed by a mostly French audience that connected with the film which not only has French-speaking actors but was also fully sub-titled in French.
The film is based on the story of TransWire Communications, a global phone network with major operations in Nigeria. ‘The CEO’ is retired and the global chairman decides to send five nominees among his most senior level staff across Africa on a leadership course in order to determine which one to appoint as the new CEO.
All five arrive from their respective destinations and check into the beach resort where the course is holding.  Although they all appear cordial and pleasant with each other, they all know what is at stake – they each desperately want the CEO’s chair. To this purpose, they attempt to covertly outdo one another through-out the duration of the course.
