Funke Akindele downgrades Nigerians that form fake accent

Multiple Award-winning Nollywood actress Funke Akindele-Bello, popularly known as ‘Jenifa’, in a recent interview downgrade some Nigerians who fake American or British accent just to impress others.


The Jenifa’s diary star actress, who is rumored to be currently pregnant for her newly wedded husband, JJC Skilz, is of the opinion that using fake British or American accent so as to impress is quite ridiculous.

Funke said:

A lot of us want to be western you know, we want to sound like the British and Americans, and we forget our culture.
We forget we are Nigerians and that we have an accent. South Africans are very proud of their accent.
