Nollywood actress “Funke Akindele” is set to bring back her popular and award winning movie ‘Jenifa’ as a drama series, to the great delight of her fans. Jenifa was an extremely hilarious and entertaining movie that was produced by Funke Akindele and depicts the story of a young village girl who in the bid of making it big in the city, turned to committing several crimes which eventually caught up with her.
“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 portrayal 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,” Funke Akindele said.
