The actress who was born on August 24, 1977, once told the story of how no producer wanted to give her a lead role during auditions but that didn’t deter her determination to make it in life. Rather than give up on her passion for acting, she opted to make her own film.
For this bold move, luck has shone on the mother of two as the actress has garnered great influence and affluence in the Nollywood film industry which features her popular TV drama series, Jenifa’s Diary as a household sitcom in Nigeria.
The actress welcomed a set of twins with her husband, JJC Skillz back in 2018. This is a relief for those of her supporters as the actress now can relish her happy family life after parting from her ex-husband in 2013.
In Jenifa’s fleet of cars are very exotic models from the top luxury brands such as Rolls-Royce, Lamborghini, and Bentley. This is prehensible as the fact that Jenifa is currently one of the Top richest actresses in Nigeria. Puls, in her league are famous and influential media personalities like billionaire blogger Linda Ikeji, superstar actresses Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Ekehinde and talented musician Teni Apata who have all been seen alongside the riding beasts. So what does Funke have to relate? Check out her car collection below!
White Bentley Continental
For such a charming and hi-class actress as Funke, a Bentley Continental is truly a wise choice. The car is reported to cost up to 71.5 million naira.
The Nollywood star chose white as her favorite ride color and this picture below has proved it matched perfectly with her elegant dress.
This specific Bentley continental was the one she used for her wedding reception and worth a whooping ₦71.5 million
Another car in luxury white. Though Funke hasn’t revealed much about her classic Rolls-Royce, Naijautopredicts its price is no less than 50 million
Say wow! This lady really knows how to enjoy her life with the acquisition of a Lambo. Not many people, even celebrities in the Nollywood industry, can afford this Lamborghini Aventador because of its whopping price tag – 143 million to be exact.
Toyota Land Cruiser
Despite the number of supercars she has, Funke still needs a rugged model to protect her from potential threats. That’s why she opts for a Land Cruiser which costs roughly 30 million.
The final name in Funke’s garage is a Toyota RAV4. However, she hardly shows off this ride outside, so we can’t say for sure which version it is as well as its estimated price.
The only clue we got from this picture is its red color, lol.
Overall, Funke Akindele has featured in over one hundred movies and has also won several awards to commensurate her work. In 2009, she won the African Movie Academy Awards in a leading role for the very first time. By 2016, she won the African Magic Viewers Choice Awards, AMVCA for best actress in a comedy.
In addition to all of her work, Funke Akindele also runs a charity organization called The Jenifa Foundation whose vision is to discover and nurture young talents to be independent.
