In a recent interview, amazing Nollywood actress Yvonne Jegede has refereed to her colleague Funke Akindele as a “mad woman”. She said this while speaking about her experience of working with her senior colleague on the recently released movie, ‘A Tribe Called Judah’.
Yvonne said during her work with Funke she gained more knowledge about filmmaking, adding that Funke is an ‘insane’ filmmaker and she cant call Funke without adding ‘Big Sis’.
Going further she said
“It was a great and awesome experience working on this project. It was something different from what I had been doing, and I loved it.
“When you see her on TV, you would think, oh, she loves to have fun, play around, dance and be goofy. Haaaa! that’s a lie o she’s a mad woman (screamed). She’s a very serious person when she’s onset. And I think that made my respect for her go really high. Now, I can’t even call her Funke to her face I have to call her big sis because my respect for her has doubled. She’s an insane filmmaker.
“Every department she holds down is done to perfection. And I think this is because she overprepares before she comes on set, so she knows every single thing; every department is inside her brain. To be honest, she’s good.”
