Talks of a possible animosity existing between Nollywood actresses, Eniola Badmus and Funke Akindele can now be firmly laid to rest, as the plus-sized actress recently named her colleague as her ‘Woman Crush Wednesday (WCW)’.
The one-time frequent collaborators are rumoured to be at
loggerheads, and a seeming lack of acknowledgement from one to the other
on both their birthdays further fuelled the rumours.
In celebration of her newly-married friend however, Eniola wrote, ‘My
#wcw goes to my dear friend, sister and colleague, whose impact in the
movie industry is worth celebrating, I also celebrate her dedication,
perseverance and acting prowess, keep making indelible marks in
Nollywood…….I call her LAFUNKY.’
Eniola Badmus got her big break in Funke Akindele’s hit movie, Jenifa in 2008, and the plus-sized actress has gone on to become one of the leading faces in Nollywood.
