    Olufunke Akindele is a nice, unassuming personality, who’s being putting numerous Nigerian youths busy with her film making. She feeds those working for her 24hrs, a day while shooting film. I think if she becomes the deputy governor of Lagos State, she will definitely have a big influence on the youths.
