Aremu Afolayan is the younger brother of renowned filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan. There have been various reports labelling him as a ‘gigolo’ because of his love for dating older women. Aremu Afolayan has however said he can’t be bothered by what people say about him. In a recent interview,Aremu Afolayan said, “ I love ladies that are older than me. It’s my business because I don’t find the good thing, the real love and happiness from the young chaps. They said I’m a gigolo right? I owe no one any explanation for the way I live my life. They can criticize my film, but not my life.
“They said I do rich women for money, how I wish I can do that because a gigolo doesn’t get broke like this. If I’m a gigolo I will never sell my properties to do a film of N16 million. I sold three of my cars to raise the money. I am not what people think I am. Can you imagine a situation where I sleep with my girl now and she will go and sleep with one yahoo boy or my daddy’s friend again because she needs money? So, I have to follow someone who is not a girl as they say, but a lady that is at least older than me. This is what I like; my life, not their life. So, that’s no one’s business. You see, I owe no one any explanation concerning this. I can only explain to God and until He comes, I can continue.”
