Nollywood actress and now politician, Funke Akindele has declared that Battle on Bukka Street, her most recent movie which premiered last week would be her last film as she bids the Nigerian movie industry goodbye.
She made this known in an interview with the Punch newspaper.
She also stated that she is passing the baton of movie productions to her junior colleagues as she’s moving unto a new phase of life which is politics.
“A great change has happened positively if you noticed. From being an actor, I also write, produce, direct and discover new faces. So I have passed the baton of production to the young people because I have moved into politics now.” She said.
“So Battle On Bukka Street is like a farewell because I’m going to be the next Deputy Governor of Lagos State. So I’m passing the baton of production to the new ones because we need to give them an opportunity.
“I will be in the background and supervise them, but let them be the face, let us celebrate them, are you not tired of seeing old faces?”
The Nollywood actress embarked on her political journey to save Lagos and her people from bad governance.
