Gorgeous! Funke Akindele Releases New Promo Pictures for 2015 & Announces ‘Jenifa’ TV Series



Funke-Akindele-Promo-Pictures-January-2015-BellaNaija003Nollywood actress Funke Akindele is looking all types of lovely in her new promo pictures.

According to her, this New Year she has plans to be more creative while churning out more entertainment content for her fans. She’s bringing back her hugely successful portrayal of the character, Jenifa in a new television sit-com drama.

Funke Akindele is set to unveil a Jenifa TV series, a reality show and a radio talk show.

She states, ‘I actually wanted the character to take a deserving rest but I’m amazed that many years after, the Jenifa’s character still resonates. Anywhere I go, it is welcome, and people love to see, hear that part of Jenifa in me. I want to believe that my potrayal of Jenifa this time will be loved more by the viewers of the drama series. There will be more chemistry with co-actors. I must quickly add that a good number of actors in the original Jenifa are involved; alongside new faces and that will be the highlight of the show.’

See her new pictures below!

    Jenifa was a lovely film to watch, hugely popular, but i think she needs to move on from it. Jenifa TV series, no no.

    Well done Jennifer. You have gradually found your niche.
    Your style is matured, chic and vibrant.

    Funke Akindele is a versatile actress, she needs to leave the Jenifa series, as it is so overdone. She needs to start a new series from scratch, that would be equally as entertaining and funny, and she would definitely get a new fan base. She looks beautiful.

    One of the best i’ve seen of Funke.

    Perhaps she has dipped elsewhere and realized nothing has been profitable like Jenifa. Let her milk it for what its worth.

    I enjoyed “Jenifa” , but I thought “the return of Jenifa” was blah. Sooooooo many pple thought I was crazy, the part 2 was awesome.

    In essence, they’ll still be people that will crack their ribs from the series.

    She could continue the Jenifa series and infuse societal issues in it, something like I Need To Know meets Law & Order: SVU intersects with Fuji House of Commotion

    Lmao at law and order with Fuji house of commotion and I need to know, hahaha ul have to write that script…nice outfits but she’s milking the jenifa thiing too much…I think as an actress she should try acting other roles to open her to more opportunities

    She should milk it till it’s bone dry ojare! That’s what ALL major actors do. When they shoot remakes of movies, isn’t that the aim? and when they make series from films (remember Soul Food the movie became a series) and even extract characters from an exisitng programme to develop into a new one (Fuji House of Commotion was developed from the Fuji family in Checkmate), it’s the same thing. She should also go ahead and start commercialising Jenifa memorabilia sef. In all this, shoe just needs to make sure the script writing is excellent so we don’t get bored o.

    PS: Falzthebadguy must be in the cast, no contest! lol
