In July 2016, in an interview she stated she was acting less in the Yoruba film industry at that time because of piracy.[8] Akindele plays the lead character in the ongoing hit TV show Jenifa's Diary, alongside Fisayo Ajisola, Falz, Juliana Olayode, and Aderounmu Adejumoke. The show is a spin-off from the movie Jenifa.[7] The 2018 comedy film Moms at War stars Akindele and Michelle Dede.
