Kunle Afolayan enrolled his eight year old son for an automobile training immediately the summer break commenced and he explains his reasons.
Afolayan shared a video of his son, Darimisire, learning the mechanism of repairing automobile at a local automobile repair shop few days after the commencement of the summer break.
He said, “Keep them busy so they can be useful to themselves and the society at large. Darimisire doing holiday internship as an automobile mechanic. Loro kan, o nko’se mokalik #mechanic #internship”
The video attracted a total of 61, 721 views on Instagram with many of the filmmaker’s followers praising his decision to enrol his son for the training.
Darimisire Afolayan is the young actor that played the role of Roti in Kunle Afolayan’s movie which starred the filmmaker and Kate Henshaw and Fathia Balogun.
The AMAA and AMVCA recipient explained why he decided to enrol his son for a training at the local automobile repair shop saying he wants his children to know the different shades of life.
He said, “Children of this generation may think they are having fun because they didn’t experience what some of us experienced but they are caged. Most of their life is spent either in front of television or the computer game. My children are a bit different; they are not addicted to anything. Even the most senior one who has a phone, most times I force him to pick the phone because he doesn’t stay on it.
“I also want him to learn how to interact with people outside the house and learn how to speak Yoruba so that when he is back in school, he will understand that life has different sides and not everybody is privileged to have what he has,” he said in a chat with Punch.
