Anikulapo season two to be shot in Ghana

Renowned Nigerian filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan, has revealed exciting news at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival in France. He announced that part of the highly anticipated season two of ANIKULAPO will be shot in Ghana in support of the National Film Authority’s “Shoot in Ghana” campaign.

The Netflix hitmaker, Mr. Afolayan made this announcement during the Nigeria International Film and TV Summit (NIFS) held in Cannes, France, where he was joined by various industry experts and media personalities. The CEO of Ghana’s National Film Authority, Ms. Juliet Yaa Asantewa Asante, who played a key role in securing this collaboration, was also present at the Summit when the exciting news was shared.

Ms. Asante expressed her enthusiasm for this partnership, stating that the shooting of parts of ANIKULAPO in Ghana presents a fantastic opportunity to strengthen the film relationship between Ghana and Nigeria. She emphasized the importance of both countries collaborating deeply and exploring each other’s markets and strengths.

Mr. Afolayan’s commitment to training is also highlighted, as his film school, KAP Academy, has already trained over 10,000 students in Nigeria and other parts of the continent. This announcement not only signifies a boost for the Ghanaian film industry but also promises job opportunities for many Ghanaians, including those outside the film sector, and the transfer of valuable skills during the shoot.

ANIKULAPO is a popular Netflix original film and television series, and Ms. Juliet Yaa Asantewa Asante is encouraging filmmakers globally to consider Ghana as a shooting location. The “Shoot in Ghana” campaign, launched two years ago, has already achieved significant success, including hosting the filming of the well-known Super Bowl advert in the country, as well as many other projects that have yet to be unveiled.
