The power of social media in recent times cannot be over emphasised. It has led to the breakthrough or downfall of individuals with celebrities not being left behind. One of Nigeria’s top actresses, Funke Akindele, recently achieved a feat on social media after her followers increased to five million
The Jenifa’s Diary star could not contain her joy as she shared a video of herself dancing on her Instagram page to celebrate. She also thanked her fans and followers in her caption.
“5m followers!!! Oya legoooo!!! My fans are badder than yours. Love you guys!! Thanks for always supporting my works!! May God bless you all. Now time to go use this number of followers to collect money for bank. #authenticfans #jenifans #awontemi #itsbyGodsgrace.” Her excitement is probably due to the fact that she now has a wider reach owing to the increase of her followers.
Funke Akindele became a known face in the movie industry after she starred in a United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) sponsored drama series I Need to Know during her young years. She has since expanded in her craft and is now one of top actresses in Nollywood. The award winning actress and movie producer is married to Nigerian rapper Abdul Rasheed Bello who is popularly known as JJC Skillz. The couple got married in 2016. This is coming after it was reported the prophecy of a self proclaimed prophet who made the assertion the actress would not have children of her own till she marries a gate man. As expected, the news generated a lot of reaction from her fans with several of them praying for her and rebuking the prophecy.
