American-based filmmaker, Kola Amusan, has revealed why he has never worked with his elder brother, Bolaji Amusan, aka Mr. Latin.
Many fans are surprised that Kola Amusan, is yet to work with Mr. Latin till date, this has also raised insinuations that all may not be well between the brothers.
But while speaking with Sunday Scoop, Kola said there were no issues between them. He said: “My brother and I actually planned my latest movie, African Queen, together but he’s a busy person. He does other things apart from acting. We did the production in his home in Abeokuta and I also featured the students of his film school in the movie.
Even for my first two Yoruba movies, Eyin Ookan and Isijibo, he was not available and I had to replace him with Pa James Ajirebi and Muyiwa Adegoke, respectively.”
Kola also stated that his personality was quite different from Mr. Latin, saying that he wasn’t sure he could make people laugh like his brother. He added;
“But people say I am the finer version of Mr. Latin. My brother has really contributed to my success. He was the one who made my first trip to America possible.
He had a show and included my name and Odunlade Adekola on the list of performers. Before the American trip, he had tried to get me a South African visa but it didn’t work out,” he said.
