In another tweet, Damilola spoke against discriminatory opinions based on his skin colour over his role in Anikulapo.

"Wow! This guy says I should not be cast in a Yoruba film, as a Yoruba Man, in Yoruba land, speaking Yoruba, just because I have pale skin and because he was colonized by White people. Never thought I would ever hear such absolutely ridiculous discriminatory opinion in 2024," he tweeted.
