Funke Akindele in age controversy.



New reports have it that Yoruba actress,Funke Akindele is lying to Nigerians about her real age.







According to Wikipedia, the actress was born Akindele Olufunke Ayotunde on August 24, 1976 in Ikorodu, Lagos State, Nigeria.




  A Nollywood producer who prefers to remain anonymous has insisted that the actress is about 44 years old.


He said,
As at when she starred in "I Need To Know", Funke’s age was already more than the teenage character which she portrayed. She is not 39 or 40 as she claims, she is 44 years old. I have been around for quite a while to know this for sure. Age falsification and reduction is a trend in Nollywood and indeed every sector of the society, this is not the first time it is coming up,


 On why movie personalities false their ages, a brand expert, Ikechukwu Orji said " Corporate organizations are more disposed to associating with celebrities who are younger due to their youth segment appeal".




Do we really care if Ms Akindele is 40,44 or 50?. Heck no! She entertains us and that is all that matters.

      Funke Akindele was in Ondo State Polytechnic in 1992/1993 set, OND. Her bunk mate was Esosa Aideyan, cousin to Paul Emema producer of I Need to Know Funke is 44 years. These women are doing well for their ages. Women stop hating on women. It disgusts me
