In as much as this country is being led by men and women who with their actions and utterances try to wipe this country out of the world’s map, there are other people who insist that the country must be on the map of the world.
Dear Funke Akindele
Funke Akindele Bello!!
You have bellowed your name into the ears of Africa and now, woman’s international. You know, things like this makes me generally emotional and mushy.
I mean, this is a stark case of grace, hard work and drive. When I saw the news that you are making an appearance in an Avengers movie, I was elated. For a while, I tried to sink that in.
When you started the Jenifas diary, I had people who said that you are all about scattering good English and poisoning our generation with bad English.
I laughed because they were mostly people that voted for Buhari. I mean, what else can come out from their brains except worm infested ideas and thoughts?
I am happy that you are a source of pride for we Nigerians. You have done for us what Buhari and his gang haven’t done.
Putting us on the map for a good reason. Wizkid and Davido have done theirs and are still doing theirs.
Great day to be a Nigerian! Let’s keep working and ignore Buhari.
