Kunle Afolayan is turning into a ‘career launcher’.

After launching the acting career of the talented Chidinma Ekile, he is set to do the same for another beloved Afropop star, Simi.

According to a post the "I Dun Care" singer shared on her Instagram page over the weekend, she is set to make her Nollywood debut in 'Mokalik' — an upcoming movie from the AMVCA-winning director.

Inspired by a scene from his late father, Ade Love’s iconic film, 'Taxi Driver', 'Mokalik' will follow a day in the life of Jaiye, an 11-year-old boy who is sent by his middle-class parents to work at a mechanic workshop to give him a different perspective on life.

Simi will be playing a character also named Simi — the daughter of one of the two buka(food canteen) owners in the film — whom Jaiye inadvertently develops a crush on.

If Simi’s Nollywood debut will be anything like her acting in her mostly narrative-driven music videos, then fans would not have anything to worry about, because she is a natural.
