How a personal issue affected Funke Akindele

Actress, movie producer and mum of twins, Funke Akindele has recounted the major challenge she encountered while on the set of Battle of Buka street.

Opening up in a video recording, the politician spilled that it was the last day of filming and was supposed to be a day of victory because the movie shoot was finally coming to end but it turned out to be the saddest day of her life.

According to Funke Akindele, a personal issue affected her, broke her, and made her very sad but she summoned up the courage to continue shooting.

“The major challenge while shooting Battle on Buka street was the famous market scene, a scene I filmed when I was very sad. It was one of my saddest days on earth, something very personal happened, I broke down heavily and I couldn’t film and I told myself Funke, challenges will come but don’t let them deter you, so I braced up, summoned up courage and filmed the scene, I had started well and needed to end it well too and it was the last day on set, whatever you do, challenges will come, always pray for strength to keep it on cos it won’t always be easy”

Admonishing her fans further, Funke Akindele wrote “No matter how much one gets beaten down in life, one must always stay strong because like the quote above says, we become the most vulnerable when we cower in fear. When we give in to our sadness, it means we have allowed our weakness to overtake us and nothing can be achieved in life with this type of attitude.

-Never be afraid to make mistakes.
-Never stay down when you fall; make sure you rise and keep moving.
-Never be intimidated!
-Always believe in yourself and give no room for doubt.

Resilience, determination, consistency, and dedication are the keys to succeeding in whatever endeavor you find yourself.”
