There is a growing concern by Nigerians over Nollywood star actress, Funke Akinele’s well-being.
This became pertinent after the movie star, popularly known as Jenifa, stormed her Twitter page on Wednesday, May 24th, 2023 to drop an apprehensive message.
She wrote; “Depression is real. Please be kind to others. Yes, don’t trade your happiness with anything, but still, be humane in all you do.”We are all on a journey in this world. Be conscious. Be aware. Share. Make peace. Take risks and be grateful for success and victory. Yet be aware, love, forgive, and stay happy.”
Her message, has, however, been accompanied with mixed reactions from her fans, followers and others. See below…
