By on July 22, 2014

Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele has again lashed out at her critics, who claimed that her infrequent appearance in English movies is due to her deficiency in English language. For some time now, the rumour is that the talented actress has been featuring majorly in Yoruba movies because she cannot speak or act effectively in English.

But rather than take up her haters in the most common ‘street way’, which she is known for in most of her movies, the Ikorodu, Lagos State-born thespian took to Twitter to express her disgust. She wrote on her twitter page:

“I always laugh when people say na only Yoruba films she dey act. She no fit speak/act English film. Maybe dey didn’t watch I Need to Know.”

As soon as she dropped the tweet, her fans started to take a swipe at her critics. In a comment, a fan wrote: “Of course, they are either too young or ignorant.” Another fan wrote: “I agree because that series was more than educative and I heard Funke was paid in Dollars.”

For those who, Funke Akindele came into the movie industry more than a decade ago. The producer of Jenifa, an award-winning movie, is one of the most respected crossover actresses, having also acted in a number of English movies, including White Hunters.
