Nigerian actress and new politician, Funke Akindele has doubled down on her plans to step away from Nollywood to focus on her political career.
In an interview, Funke Akindele revealed that her latest movie, Battle on Buka Streets, is her farewell project as she fully delves into politics.
She said, "A great change has happened positively if you noticed. From being an actor, I also write, produce, direct and discover new faces. So, I have passed the baton of production to the young people because I have moved into politics now.
'Battle on Buka Street' is like a farewell because I am going to be the next deputy governor of Lagos State. So, I am passing the baton to the new ones because we need to give them an opportunity. Yes, I will be in the background to advise and supervise them, but let them be the face, let us celebrate them, are you not tired of seeing old faces?"
