Rising Nollywood actress, Lota Chukwu, famously known as Kiki from Jenifa’s Diaries, in this interview with NET TV speaks on her relationship with Funke Akindele; the beef between Toyo Baby and Funke Akindele.
Speaking on her relationship with Funke Akindele, she said ‘She is like a mum to everyone on set, she is hardworking and very hands on. In fact, she is like a big sister to everyone’.
She also touched on the simmering beef between Akindele and Juliana
Oloyede who played her best friend, Toyo in the series, saying it was
just a decision in movie production, in which characters come and go.
‘I don’t think it could be classified as a beef. I wonder why
everybody is saying that. Here is the thing, in a typical movie series,
characters come and go, it was never a life-long contract. If the
character is needed, the character will come back, I am not the producer
of the show” she said
If you noticed, I had to leave after season five. In fact, at
this point, I am very sure if Jenifa could leave, she would leave, but
she is the lead character’.
