Top Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, has lashed out at her critics, who claimed that her infrequent appearance in English movies is due to her linguistic deficiency in English.
For some time, the rumours had been rife that the talented actress has been featuring majorly in Yoruba movies because she cannot speak or act effectively in English.

But rather than take up her critics in the most common ‘street way’, which she is known to have acted in most of her movies.The Ikorodu, Lagos State-born thespian took to Twitter to express her disgust. Funke wrote on her twitter page:

 “I always laugh when people say na only Yoruba films she dey act. She no fit speak/act English film. Maybe dey didn’t watch I Need to Know.”

Almost immediately after she dropped the tweet, her fans started to take a swipe at her critics. In a comment, a fan wrote:

“Of course, they are either too young or ignorant.” And as if that was not enough, another fan said:

“I agreed because that series was more than educative and I heard Funke was paid in Dollars.” For those who have been following her story since she came into the movie industry more than a decade ago, the producer of Jenifa, an award-winning movie, is one of the respected crossover actresses, having also acted in a number of English movies, including White Hunters.

Funke, don't mind them, all those who made fun of you are even worst than you.  I remember "I need to know" especially the episode where Ejike Asiegbu told the girl to look for her period where she missed it.

How many Nigerians can speak English language fluently? Those taking a snide at her speak tautology. That's why here in Asia most of them fail English language proficiency test.
