BN Bytes: Are You Ready for This Bigz Girlz? Check Out Funke Akindele’s New Promo Shots

The promo machine for the new Jenifa movie – “The Return of Jenifa” has hit full throttle!
Check out these new promo shots for Funke Akindele – the writer and lead star of the “Jenifa” movies.

According to the actress’s publicist, Bigsam Media, TROJ will exceed whatever record ‘Jenifa’ set. In a statement released, the firm stated that “We have it on record that Jenifa sold over eight million copies which exclude the pirated copies taken abroad and we believe TROJ will overtake that record and set another one. The kind of effort that was put into the production of the movie is unequal. The DOP, DJ Tee, cast and crew, budget, and standard applied have not been seen in recent times. Asides all these, the storyline is refreshing and different. This is one movie that will break cinema record and set a new one”.

The cast for the movie include Funke Akindele, Banky W, Kaffy, Eldee, Freeze, Eniola Badmus, Yinka Quadri, Wizkid, Antar Olaniyan, Mercy Aigbe, Ronke Oshodi Oke, Denrele Edun, CD John, Helen Paul, Naeto C, DJ Zeez and many others.

    aww there should be subtitles so some of us can watch. didn’t understand but the little that was said in english made me laugh my head off.

  • my day June 7, 2011 at 11:42 am

    She is very original, and one of the very few Nollywood actresses whose passion for what she does is palpable and evident. She really was born for this.

  • moi! June 7, 2011 at 12:40 pm

    Beautiful actress! cant wait for the return of “jennifa”

  • Susan June 7, 2011 at 2:32 pm

    I so love and respect this woman – she is fierce. Smartest business woman in the whole of NOLLYWOOD. I love her so much –

  • Susan June 7, 2011 at 2:34 pm

    I dont speak yoruba but love the movie none the less, cos i understand the movie perfectly. But someone explain this to me, what did she said after she said “You dont know, you dont know ??????” it sounded funny – cos she is struggling to let the english out and she was like “Oh wharraheck” let me speak my yoruba. I love me some funke – her craze no get level sef

  • Gorgeous June 7, 2011 at 3:03 pm

    “E Dakun e ma jen tabon” rotflmao.hahahahhahahahaha. She looks gorgeous in the scene where she says “we can be a friendship.” If she would just try to be a lady once in a while her beauty will shine seriously. But her character is what makes her sha. Very tomboyish.

    • Susan June 7, 2011 at 4:00 pm

      “E Dakun e ma jen tabon” yeah yeah thats what i meant – so what does that mean, i dont understand please help

      • Gorgeous June 7, 2011 at 6:41 pm

        Please, you people should not let me shell or throw language bombs. ” When people are frustrated because they cant say what they want to say in english without murdering the english language. hahahahahaha

      • Elle June 7, 2011 at 11:57 pm

        Means please I don’t want to make grammatical errors. Which is even funnier cos she hadn’t constructed one correct sentence prior to that statement.

      • baby dee June 8, 2011 at 12:53 am

        lo… It means abeg, don’t let me commit grammatical error.

      • e-bukun June 8, 2011 at 2:39 am

        It pretty much means “abeg don’t let me TABON or gbagaun” (as y’all say)

  • THE AMAKA June 7, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    I like Funke but this photo shoot made her look as if she is 8 years older than she really is. did someone not know how to style her? she looks great with her actual hair, but adding these wigs and weaves did her no justice. weaves are not for everyone, abeg.

    • chiiiiiichichikito June 7, 2011 at 6:43 pm

      see why I love ur comments??Only urs makes sense here

    • e-bukun June 8, 2011 at 2:40 am

      You do realize she cut off all her hair for one of her movies and now she does have to wear wigs

      • THE AMAKA June 8, 2011 at 8:14 am

        thats exactly what I’m talking about. not everyone needs hair to look good. she is rocking a short haircut, almost bald, and i think that looks better than those granny wigs on her head. please, i know she is rocking a short do and i love it that way. as i said, wigs and weaves is not for everyone.
        look at flaviana matata for example. weaves would take away from her striking beauty.

  • Chibaby June 7, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    Hella funny chick.

  • THE AMAKA June 7, 2011 at 3:11 pm

    subtitles please?!

  • maame June 7, 2011 at 3:34 pm

    It looks like a good but I’m Ghanaian so I have no idea what they are saying? i hope there will be subtitles so us Ghanaians and others who dont understand yoruba can buy and watch the movie too

  • naji June 7, 2011 at 3:47 pm

  • El Bee June 7, 2011 at 6:03 pm

    Can’t wait for this to come out!! Way toooo funny!

  • Zara June 7, 2011 at 6:48 pm

  • Obi June 7, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    Love this lady. I also like that mainstream Nollywood is beginning to recognize talent and including people like her not just same old cast we’re used to seeing. She has made her mark in Yoruba films, the rest us non-Yoruba speaking folk need to be blessed with her presence in movies. Chai and she’s so natural when acting …

  • Sandra June 7, 2011 at 11:19 pm

    Funke! I love have managed to look beautiful and respectable at the same time. A true role model for the African woman. Talented beauty with values.

  • MAYA June 8, 2011 at 2:04 am

    RIP CD John, you’re fondly remembered.
