Early Life

Kunle Afod parents settled down in Lagos State where they gave birth to four children after getting married. Kunle Iyiola Afod being the eldest among his siblings was such a huge task for him because he had to act like a senior and control them when his parents are not around.

You know how Lagos State is, a developed area filled with people from different locations so one has to be careful because you can’t tell who is who. This same Lagos State was where Kunle Afod spent his formative years growing up with his parents and siblings. What are the names of his siblings? Don’t worry I will be telling you their names later on in this article, let’s talk about his education and other things first.


How he was able to cope during his primary and secondary school years is what I keep on wondering till now. Imagine changing location for both your primary and secondary school education. I’m sure it affected him greatly because he will be getting into a new environment and it would take time for him to adapt compared to someone who has been in a particular school for years.

Anyhow, Kunle being someone who was determined adapted immediately just because he had the passion. I have placed some data in the table below showing the location where he had his primary school education and the name of the secondary school he attended.

Kunle Afod is a very good actor to be very sincere. I would recommend you checking one of his movies so you can actually understand what I am talking about. Kunle is known in the Nollywood industry as someone who doesn’t give stress during acting, he knows how to master a full script and put it into action within just a short period of time without giving the director headache, this is to show how talented he is.

Before Kunle Afod began his journey into the movie industry in Nigeria, he never knew anything especially how the industry operate and being someone who is humble and ready to learn, he met up with Jide Ogungbade who taught him almost everything he knows now.

However, he didn’t stop there. Being a man with wisdom, Kunle Afod knew fully well that one person can’t tell him all about the industry so he had to link up with Ben Tomoloju and Jahman Anikulapo who added more to what Jide Ogungbade had taught him earlier. After so much practice, he applied everything he had learnt so far and directed the movie titled “Ori Eiye.” which eventually brought him into the limelight.
