For the Love of the Job! Funke Akindele-Oloyede Climbs Up a Palm Tree in her New Movie “Village Champion”



Funke Akindele-Oloyede must definitely be a fun actress to work with as she seems every ready to go the distance to get the job done. If it were in Hollywood, we could easily say – “She does her own stunts” as the vibrant actress climbed up a palm tree for her new role in forthcoming movie “Village Champion”.

Does she play a palm wine tapper or a ‘banga’ farmer in the new film? Would you go the distance to climb a palm tree for a movie role?

    This BN self, you people can be funny!!!! Do you guys realize she is getting paid big bucks for roles abi you think it is free. A script is a script, if you read it and like it and want to act it then you get on with it, it is work. Abi you dont see all the stunts they do in American and other movie industries ni? If you like dont post my comment.

    Funke Akindele is one of my favorite actresses. She is so good that she can act any, I repeat, any role. I still marvel at the way she acted the dual role in “Omo ghetto”. Keep it up girl! and for those who say it’s for the money, do I need to list out actors who act terribly and still get paid?

    @Peter and TM; my sentiments exactly ! I love Funke Akindele. Oh how I wish I do not see Chika Ike or Queen Nwakoye, in another movie- they couldn’t act their way out of a paper bag those two.

    @californiatingy or what is your name, funny enough my comment was directed to Bella and not you nor Funke( cos Funke is a great actress) but you have just displayed your lack of comprehension by taking the comment personal.
