Singer, Simi will be taking her first steps into the acting world after securing a role on Kunle Afolayan‘s upcoming movie, ‘Mokalik’.
Simi has been casted to line up alongside other prominent industry names like Femi Adebayo, Ayo Adesanya, Faithia Williams, Lateef Oladimeji, among others in producer, Kunle Afolayan‘s new movie Mokalik.
This was made known via a post shared on Kunle Afolayan’s Instagram page, with the words, ”It is Official: Simi @symplysimi is featuring in “Mokalik” a Kunle Afolayan film.”
“Simi will be playing Simi; daughter of a Buka (cafeteria) owner whose character holds a significant part in the movie plot,” he stated.
The director who is already on location shooting scenes from the movie explains that, Mokalik is a story that follows the career of an 11-year-old boy, Jaiye, from the middle-class suburbs, who spends the day as a lowly apprentice at a mechanic workshop in order to view life from the other side of the tracks.
From the moment Jaiye is dropped off at the mechanic workshop by his father, Ogidan, it is obvious he doesn’t want to be there.
Jaiye stands out like a sore thumb in the workshop as he commences his apprenticeship under various mechanics. Along the way, he meets other apprentices, some of who take a liking to him, and others who dislike him.
