On International Women’s Day, Nollywood actor Alex Ekubo paid tribute to his senior colleague, Funke Akindele.
Alex Ekubo took to his Instagram story to share a photo of Funke Akindele and hailed her as an International Women’s Day heroine for her consistency. He described Funke as a woman who rises higher than she falls.
Alex noted that Funke’s life serves as a daily reminder to him that failure does not define a person’s life. Alex noted that Funke has remained consistent in her career for decades, indicating that she understands how to strategize for success without allowing any situation to bring her down.
Alex, who is camping out with Funke on her political journey, believes she will succeed because she is the epitome of motivation an African girl child needs to dream bigger. Alex tagged Funke as the state’s incoming deputy governor, revealing that he is a full Lagos breed.
Alex quickly responded to critics who pointed out her political party affiliation, saying he is among those who vote for individuals rather than parties. He assured his dear friend that her dreams were completely valid and that she should not be discouraged by any other candidates.
On March 18th, Alex Ekubo declares his support for Jandor and his running mate, Funke.
He wrote: “Happy International Women’s Day to the incoming Deputy Governor of Lagos State. You are my hero of Women’s Day because you are consistent, resilient & dogged, you fall 13 times & get up 14 times. You constantly remind me that failure in certain areas of your life doesn’t define you as a person.
“You exude confidence, competence, strength, and compassion all while maintaining beauty. You have succeeded in your career for over 2 decades, which means you clearly understand how to maneuver terrain. You never let anyone or any situation define you, you are an actor, producer, all-round entertainer, mother, entrepreneur, & politician.
“You will succeed in this quest because, it will be a motivation to the average Nigerian/African girl to dream bigger, for her to know that her background should not keep her back to the ground. For her to know that a woman cannot be boxed or defined.
“Your ability to regroup, reorganize, restructure & re-strategize should be studied. I believe in you, i believe in the sincerity of purpose of your political ambitions. Let me just remind you, Ore your dreams are 100% valid, don’t let anybody downplay your dream or tell you different, or try to make you feel inferior or less than a befitting candidate. It hasn’t been done before is not an excuse otherwise the world will remain stagnant.
“Let it be known that I stand with you with my full chest, as a full Lagos boy, bred & brought up in Surulere. I wish you utmost success. Deputy Governor Funke Akindele, that sounds about right. Over here we vote individual & not party. Because at the end of the day, it’s the individual that will do the work not the political party. This Saturday I vote #JandorFunke for a better Lagos”.
