Funke Akindele dishes on the “Jenifa” brand, the robbery incident, Life and Love in TW Mag’s April 2011 issue

Published

 on


She’s Back! Yes, Funke Akindele of ‘Jenifa’ returns to the headlines and burns up the cover of TW Magazine this April. She talks about life, love and the pursuit of perfection in film making, including being held up at gunpoint.

“They came, robbed the whole hotel and were even singing the ‘Omo Ghetto’ song for me. They took the bulk of the money meant to pay the crew the next day.”

This April TW Magazine hits the runway and takes off and lands you in a fashion paradise featuring designers like Kareema Mak, Lanre DaSilva-Ajayi and Kemkemstudio, and their style editor gives you her picks of who rocked the fashion runway last month at the ARISE Fashion Week. Are you a fan of Naeto C? Well he features as their Celebrity this month and he opens up about his monster hit ‘Share My Blessings’ and his internet dust-up in December 2010. All that and more in store in this month’s TW!

    I think she looks trim, fit and sexy. A bit over airbrushed, but what the heck, her story sounds great! And the fashion looks hot!

    9ja people sef! Is that all we really have to say about this? She was robbed oh! And all we say is “her hair is this and that, her make up bla bla. It’s always only about “me, myself and i”! Do we really care for others? Not to mention our neighbor’s dog sef. How really can change come? Sorry oh Jenne baby! The sky is not your limit. Those robbers will not go unpunished! Don’t be discouraged keep up with what you do, but seek wisdom.

    Wow…. she was robbed? nahawoo was this an inside job or what? Thank God she was not killed. I think next time, the crew members should be given pay slip instead of cash, avoid carrying cash around you. God help us and protect us. Thank you Lord for your mercies.

    the airbrushing only did the opposite of what its intended to do, it only made the photo look worse. come on now! that person should be fired.
    as for the models, smokin hott! love the concept. how many people in Naija can afford to fly anyway (all jokes, but kinda true though). but whatever, i understand the ART behind it.

    why do they keep on robbing these celebrities, there is no security in this country it’s so sad, young men and women who struggle to make money and improve nigeria’s image abroad can’t feel protected at home. it’s really sad

    I’m happy it was only money that was stolen and no life was lost….I’ve done a bit of production myself so I understand about keeping money with you, sometimes it’s inevitable.
    I don’t like the editing of this picture, it’s too much! Funny that’s one complain that’s run through all the pictures I’ve looked at tonight. Funke is a pretty lady with a great body, this editing only made look the opposite of that.
    Can’t wait to see Jenifa 3!!! Hope it’s the last one though…
