Afolayan has since shared the inspiration behind this decision with Punch Newspaper. 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.”

Darimisire Afolayan is the young actor that played the role of Roti in Kunle Afolayan’s movie which starred the filmmaker, Kate Henshaw and Fathia Balogun.

“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,”
