Funke Akindele Is A ‘Mad’ Woman – Yvonne Jegede




Funke Akindele and Yvonne Jegede

Talented Nollywood actress, Yvonne Jegede, has shared her experience of working with her senior colleague, Funke Akindele, on the recently released movie, ‘A Tribe Called Judah’.

Naija News reports that Yvonne, during an interview with Legit, said working with Funke on the new movie took her to a new level of understanding and knowledge about filmmaking.

The movie star made alluring comments about Funke, stating she is an ‘insane’ filmmaker who perfectly holds every part of the production while on a movie set.

Yvonne Jegede further stated that she holds Funke in high esteem and would be unable to address her by name without adding ‘Big Sis’.

The thespian noted she has no plan to emulate Funke Akindele’s feats in the cinemas because it is too capital-intensive, and she doesn’t have that type of money.

She said, “It was a great and awesome experience working on this project. It was something different from what I had been doing, and I loved it.

“When you see her on TV, you would think, oh, she loves to have fun, play around, dance and be goofy. Haaaa! that’s a lie o she’s a mad woman (screamed). She’s a very serious person when she’s onset. And I think that made my respect for her go really high. Now, I can’t even call her Funke to her face I have to call her big sis because my respect for her has doubled. She’s an insane filmmaker.

“Every department she holds down is done to perfection. And I think this is because she overprepares before she comes on set, so she knows every single thing; every department is inside her brain. To be honest, she’s good.”
