Funke Akindele – Nigerian Actress, Funke Akindele, also known as, Jenifa has urged youths to take life easy in their life pursuit as everything comes with time.
She stated this in an interview with newsmen while speaking on her accomplishment as an actor.
She stated, “There is time for everything, so, do not rush. Just take life easy. Don’t let people pressure you into doing something you do not believe. I’ve tried to push a lot of things, but when I met my husband, he changed things for me, in the sense that when I’m rushing to get things done, he’ll be like “Calm down, calm down; things will fall in place”, and indeed things have been falling in place. So, calm down!”
The mother of twins further revealed that her great accomplishment as an actor is being able to impact the lives of young people, and help them groom their potentials.
“I achieve this by giving them an opportunity. I have my production outfit, and with every series from Scene One Production, I try to empower as many people as possible. That’s a great accomplishment for me,” she said.
Adding that, “as a creative person, sometimes, I get stuck. I’ve experienced it a lot, but this year has been mad! Because, after the arrival of my babies, I went back to work immediately. What I do when I feel stuck is I dump the work, take a walk, and go for a swim. I also enjoy watching excellent TV series like ‘Greenleaf.”
“After the short break, my inspiration can happen the next day, in the shower. I can start thinking about what to do with characters, and what their next moves should be before you know it, I’m bursting with fresh new ideas,” she noted.
