    Biko why’s everyone wishing her happy 40th birthday? The article clearly states she’s 39yrs old

    • Ewa

      August 24, 2016 at 12:07 pm

      BN initially put 40. They changed it to 39

    • Kemmie

      August 24, 2016 at 5:21 pm

      Bellanaija first put 40, they changed later to 39. Funke is actually 40. She has also reported 1976 as her year of birth, which makes her 4o.
      Happy birthday to my favourable all round actress.

    If you speak to many Nollywoodians (english or yoruba actorsd) many will confirm to you that real genuine good kind hearted people in Nollywood is Funke – I have been following Funke since forever since i first saw her in her short cameo role in Genevieve movie Sharon Stone (many might not even remember her in it – go watch it again). She made laugh so much i just knew then she was destined to be a star.

    Hardly do you hear anything bad about her and this why i respect and love her so much. I hear she is so kind hearted many in the past has taken advantaged of her kindness. I pray she is happy and whomever she ends up with is true and genuine . She deserves happiness and much more.

    Happy Birthday Funke and thank you for making us laugh even when we are down. May your day and years be blessed.
