Controversial Nollywood actor and commentator, Uche Maduagwu has recently acclaimed crowd-pleasing Funke Akindele, popularly known as Jenifa. He gave credit to the actress for standing out amongst her colleagues and also being an embodiment of a true Nollywood star.
Funke, mother of a set of twins who is married to Abdul Rasheed Bello known as JJC Skillz has bagged several awards in her acting career. She plays the lead character in the show Jenifa’s Diary for which she was named Best Actress in a Comedy at the 2016 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards. She has over 100 movies to her credit as an actress, writer and producer.
She has overtime won the hearts of many including that of Uche Maduagwu. He stated that the actress will never go unclad for any photoshoot neither would she insult the father of her children, unlike the rest.
He wrote:” … Sometimes, I just feel some “drama queen” celebrities have let the youth in this country down with their sudden and irresponsible display…on social media. But the question on my mind has always been this, why can’t these “radical for attention” crop of female celebrities emulate a great legend like my sister @funkejenifaakindele?”
He further wrote: “She is happily married, talented, successful and above all, a great mother not like those who insult the father of their child in public… Why can’t they learn to be responsible like her?
In Africa whenever a woman goes…in public, it shows her level of stupidity and the depth of her inferiority complex,but these shameless celebrities have refused to act like the Jesus they claim to preach, well, how can they act like Jesus, when they can’t even emulate someone as virtuous, responsible and well behaved like @funkejenifaakindele in Nollywood.”
