I Am Tired Of Making Jenifa’s Diary — Funke Akindele
The award winning actress has revealed that she is tired of her comedy series “Jenifa’s Diary”, but does not see it coming to an end.
According to Vanguard Newspaper, she mentioned that the request of fans have spurred her into more production of the Sitcom. Funke said:
“We have actually filmed the fifth season but we are airing the fourth right now and we would soon begin shooting the sixth season.”
“I must confess that I am tired because it is not easy writing, playing the lead character, assisting the director and also supervising the whole project.”
The actress spoke of her challenges coming up with contents for Jenifa’s Diary, which has gained a lot of attention among film lovers.
It was coined off “Jenifa”, a Yoruba movie that focused on a character who made wrong choices and was wrongly influenced by her school peers.
“It is not easy writing a comedy script but each time I want to put it to rest, people tell me that the last season was lovely and they keep asking what would be happening in seasons to come.”
“They still want to see more because everyone loves Jenifa. I believe that Jenifa is a brand that has come to stay because we use her as a vessel to pass messages across to young people.”
“I use the character to highlight some problems the youths face and also proffer solutions to these problems. I don’t see Jenifa’s Dairy coming to an end,”
