I'm so happy for Funke, she's one of the hardworking, talented and sedulous actress in Nollywood. I still remember back then in early 2000's when I first watched her movie, I knew already she will go far, congrats!

She is hardworking and has lots of movies to show that she is an actress. Unlike those that call themselves actresses and have never been seen in any movies but keep showing off expensive cars and mansions they bought from proceeds of "acting movies" grin grin

Those are oloshos/runs girls not actress, there are differences between an Olosho actress and a real actress and Funke is a real actress because she works so hard for her money

I trust Funke to deliver. Someone did say the movie needs to be hyped more.

I think I need to see this film eliciting so much interests.

Kudos to the cast and crew.

She's not one of those nollywood actresses that we never seen them in one single movie and they call themselves actresses showing their houses and cars

But this lady really worked hard for her money... congrats to her

Previous record holder was a comic movie the new holder is also a comic movie... Don't be surprised if the next is also from the same genre...

The only reason I will use my money and buy ticket to watch a Nigerian movie, is if I am damn sure its gonna make me laugh...
