Funke Akindele celebrates 14 years of playing ‘Jenifa’

Film producer and actress, Funke Akindele- Bello, is celebrating 14 years of playing the character ‘Jenifa’ in her self-styled series - Jenifa Diary.

The movie producer made this known via Instagram on Sunday.

“Been playing the #jenifa character for 14 years,” she said.

Funke Akindele came into the limelight after starring in the popular United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)-sponsored sitcom “I Need to Know”, which ran from 1998 to 2002.

She played Bisi, a curious but highly intelligent secondary school student.

In July 2016, in an interview Funke Akindele stated she was acting less in the Yoruba film industry at that time because of piracy.

Akindele plays the lead character in the ongoing hit TV show Jenifa's Diary, alongside Fisayo Ajisola, Falz, and Aderounmu Adejumoke.

The show is a spin-off from the movie Jenifa.

The 2018 comedy film Moms at War stars Funke Akindele and Omoni Oboli.

In July 2019, Funke Akindele started a new web series, Aiyetoro Town, a spinoff from her popular TV series, Jenifa’s Diary.

She is the CEO of Scene One Film Production.
