Nollywood actress, Adunni Ade has been left emotional after getting ranked alongside Mo Abudu, Funke Akindele, Toyin Abraham, and others.
Nigerian Box Office had released a list of the top box office women in Filmmaking for the year 2022.
Adunni had made the list alongside Mo Abudu, Funke Akindele, Toyin Abraham, Biodun Stephen, and a host of others.
An emotional Adunni took to her Instagram page to express gratitude for the honor.
Adunni revealed that when she decided to get into Nollywood, a decade ago, she looked up to Funke Akindele.
Funke Akindele’s character, Jenifa, was pretty much her behavior whenever she came across any Nigerian in Kentucky.
She recounted how she met Funke Akindele in New York and she was the sweetest soul.
“To be celebrated alongside these great women in film beyond me. I have come across some women who have impacted me as an Actor and a new filmmaker.
When I decided to get into Nollywood a decade ago. I looked up to sis @funkejenifaakindele Her “Jenifa” character was pretty much my behavior whenever I came across any Nigerian in Kentucky. I met her in New York and she was the sweetest soul! I loved her charisma and looked forward to the day we’d work together which eventually happened in Season 2 of Jenifa.
You’ve been very supportive and I’m thankful! Unknowingly to @jadeosiberu, you pushed me into making my own project with your film “sugar rush”. I was in tears the day I watched it and immediately started my planning on how I would make a film. I actually contacted her to direct SOOLE. Though I haven’t worked with you yet, it’s something I’m looking forward to!
My sister @biodunstephen I met you when I freshly came into the country. I always looked forward to that day we’d be together and it has taken a decade for that to happen and I can’t wait for the world to see what you’ve created.
Thank you Aunty @moabudu for having me on “Sons of the caliphate” I admire your tenacity in filmmaking!
@filmoneng thank you for this. The show doesn’t stop! We keep it moving! 2 New projects coming your way soon”.
Adunni Ade recounts first meeting with Ramsey Nouah, as they reunite after 12 years
A few months back, Adunni Ade had recounted her first meeting with actor, Ramsey Nouah following their reunion on the set of a movie.
The light-skinned movie star revealed that she met Ramsey Nouah in 2011 and he gave her some pointers, which she still holds strongly to today.
She recounted how Ramsey told her to move to Nigeria and be in the face of the Nigerian audience if she wants to succeed in Nollywood.
He added that there were two ways for her to make it to the top, which were the fast route and the slow route, and she chose the latter.
Adunni noted how Ramsey Nouah is one of the actors, she always uses to make reference that if someone who looked like her could make it, she also can.
Fast forward to now, 12 years after their first meeting, she got to rework with him on the set of a new movie.
