In my entire life, I have worked with great directors, on stage, television, and film, but watching Funke Akindele’s work is a Masterclass. She is in the mud, with no shoes, doing a scene, she is directing, she is making decisions on someone’s costume and then she goes into action. And am like how do you do that? She is a multitasking genius. Watching her work, that is someone the world needs to study. And she’s incredibly balanced. Her work ethic scares me, but it inspires me. You can’t be fancy about the work if you don’t want to do the work,” Moshood Fattah praised.
