August 27, 2016 – Funke Akindele’s Real Age Is 44: Nollywood Producer Says Age Reduction Now A Trend In Nollywood

Nollywood actress Funke Akindele has come under fire for allegedly falsifying her age.

Miss Akindele who celebrated her birthday on Wednesday told fans yesterday that she is now 39, a ‘white lie’ that allegedly upset a Nollywood producer who has seen Funke Akindele’s official credentials in the past.

The producer who requested not to be named told Entertainment Express yesterday that the actress was born Akindele Olufunke Ayotunde on the 24th of August 1972.

The actress who is currently enjoying the company of her ‘serial baby daddy’ boyfriend in London is yet to respond to the age falsification allegation.

Let’s hope she shares her own official birthday certificate like Chike Ike did some years back to remove doubts on her fans mind.

The Nollywood source who exposed Miss Akindele added that age reduction has now become a trend in Nollywood.

    Funke let them say whatever they want, talk is cheap. Even at that she still looks good and young. 39, 40 and 44 these are mere figures. Free Jenifa!

    Age reduction has always been in fashion especially among ladies. From stories told by the older generation, time there was when women never owned up to being older than twenty four years of age and will celebrate the anniversary of that age for as long as they like. According to stories, it was not uncommon for ladies to bribe their younger brothers not to publicly celebrate their own birthdays so people might not from their celebrated ages discern the true age of their senior sisters.
    These days though, it seems ladies do grow old normally and proudly admit their real age because in recent times I have attended 70th and 80th Birthday parties some friends put together to celebrate their mothers.
    Personally, I don’t think anybody should be blamed for whatever age they chose to declare. This is because one is as old as he or she remembers because this age thing is mainly hearsay and although the celebrant was present when he was born, he was not really aware of the date by reason of being too young. So whatever one celebrates is what other people inform him is his age. Thus, the day you try climbing steps and find out your kness refuse to co-operate as they usually know, you will then accept the reality that you are not as young as your declared age.
    So our dear Funky, don’t mind the nosy people you hear, simply enjoy the anniversary of your declared celebrations! Those who do not like your style, let them go celebrate theirs the way they like. Happy Birthday once again and Many Happy Returns of the day !!!

    IT IS the most foolish of things that ladies do. If only nature is confused by this sort of thing, I would have said, “Well, it’s not a bad idea.”

    What could that possibly be, if she declare 39 as her age, in as much she utter it herself, let her be then, even though she’s more than the mentioned age,is left to her and her game masters.

    Even if she is 44 years, what’s the business of the yeye producer exposing her like this? People should let her be.

    The last birthday Funke celebrated was 40yrs, and I believe that is her age. She as always claimed 1976, so why d fuss about her age now, of what use or disturbance is it to dis so called noise maker come producer.
