Popular Nollywood actress and producer Funke Akindele-Bello has revealed that at her point in her career, she almost gave up acting.

 

 

 

Taking to her new YouTube channel, the mother of twins shared some things about herself many were not privy of.

Talking about her career, she said;

“I want you to look at me and my story. When I started acting in 1998, I remember how I struggled to get up there, I got a lot of “no’s”. I was the ‘queen’ of auditions and ‘wakapass’ roles. I would read so well and people will clap, I will be so excited and would think when I get the list, I would get a supporting role. But all I got were roles like church extracts. I remember crying on those occasions.

“But my mother would tell me that I’ve got the passion and it is a God-given talent. She would give me money for my transport fare; sometimes I would trek to some places then take a bus to meet up.

“I could count the number of shoes I had then, maybe two or three. But today, the story has changed. Things changed for me positively.

“After ‘I need to know’, I didn’t get any more roles, I went down; I got back to attending auditions and lobbying, calling people and knocking on doors but none opened. I felt I had lost my chance.
