Funke Akindele Is Africa's Best Actress: What Do You All Think? by muyiwa04(m): 4:33am On Apr 07, 2009
Nigeria's Funke Akindele has been named by the jury of the 2009 edition of the African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA), as Africa's best actress [/b]in a leading role. Akindele was the jury's choice out of six other actresses nominated in that category, including a Ghanaian and Kenyan.

Although, the actress, who interpreted delightfully the role of [b]Jenifa
, the lead character in the movie of same title, was not present at the award ceremony at the Integrated Glory Land Cultural Center in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, a resounding applause greeted her declaration as the continent's best actress for this year.

Anyway,Tell me why U think she is a good actress and deserve an award for being the best actress.I have never seen any African actress that deserve a Best Actress award.Their actings are all mediocre.What they deserve is a trip to acting school. wink

I know she's been there for a long time. But best upcoming award is not necessarily given to someone who is new. She just entered into the mainstream of nollywood not too long ago.

Funke Akindele is sure one of the best and inshort the best as far as nollywood is concerned.

instead of worrying over Funke's award, perhaps you can enroll in some English classes. What an eye sore

amazing how with everyone who's been nominated and won this award, it's when she gets it that the whole world is crying
Re: Funke Akindele Is Africa's Best Actress: What Do You All Think? by OMOIBO1: 11:16am On Apr 11, 2009
as a kid, she was the reason i got hooked on 'i need to know'. her acting was. . . . .  well. . . . . . . i'll skip.

who picks and chooses the nominees?
howz the vote done?. . . . . . .  .text, online, phone-ins? etc etc
