Funke Akindele announces new film ‘Everybody Loves Jenifa’

Actress and film producer, Funke Akindele, has unveiled her latest cinematic creation, Everybody Loves Jenifa, scheduled for release in December.

Nevertheless, the actress refrained from divulging further details regarding the film, particularly regarding its initial screening location, whether it will debut in cinemas or on digital streaming platforms.

The origins of Everybody Loves Jenifa can potentially be traced back to the comedic series Jenifa, which later evolved into The Return of Jenifa, as well as a television show, Jenifa’s Diary.

The inaugural installment of this series showcased Funke Akindele in the role of Jenifa, a rural dweller who journeyed to the urban landscape in pursuit of prosperity.
