Nollywood filmmaker Austin Faani has wondered why his female colleagues are not supporting Funke Akindele on her Lagos State Deputy Governorship ambition.
The producer who is happily married to screen diva Charity Eke (Chacha Eke) made his observations known via his verified Instagram page on Thursday.
Austin Faani wondered if it could be envy that is holding back actresses from rallying round in support of Funke Akindele who is contesting to become the Deputy Governor of Lagos state under PDP..
He wrote: “Funke Akindele’s colleagues are not campaigning for her, especially the female celebrities.
Could it be envy or what?
We can post her film but not her political ambition.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was once the governor of California.
Y’all think she is not capable?
I trust she will do better than all the previous Deputy Governors of Lagos put together.
Vote my Colleague.
Vote Jandor and Funke.”
Austin Faani had expressed his disappointment at the commencement of Big Brother Titans TV Reality Show just as Nigeria is at the peak of conducting the long awaited general elections.
According to the father of four, Ebuka and the organisers of the show need to someday explain to Nigerians why such irrational decision.
Taking to his verified Instagram page, Faani who is happily married to Chacha Eke Faani wrote: “Someday, not soon maybe, Ebuka and BBN will explain to Nigerians why they couldn’t wait for just a month as to not distract the Nigerian masses especially the southern Nigeria that engages more in their awesome show from the coming election. Just someday, there will be this dialogue, and I hope their reasons make sense and adds positive impact to what everyone in Nigeria is after at the moment. Get your PVC guys. I hear people say, vote wisely, vote with your conscience and all sorts. If you can’t use any of the above traits to vote, simply vote for Peter Obi and Datti Yusuf. Thumb print where you see a family picture.”
It would be recalled that twenty- two energetic, young and vibrant housemates drawn from Nigeria and South Africa had stormed the maiden edition of Africa’s topmost reality TV show, Big Brother Titans.
Bbtitans, as it would be mostly called, holds in South Africa with the housemates battling for ultimate prize of $100,000.
