Mrs Funke Akindele- Bello in a recent interview, shared her love for cooking, favorite foods and why she doesn’t cook for the family in the morning.
She said; “Inasmuch as I love cooking, I don’t often find time to cook. I still cooked last night but I don’t cook every morning because of my busy schedule. I cook every time I am free and have nothing on my plate.My special dishes are vegetable soups. I love cooking vegetable soup (efo riro) very well and I either eat it with eba or fufu. I also cook fresh fish stew and Ogbono soup. I can cook anything ranging from beans to Amala and I cook well” she asserted.
Also speaking on the best way to excel in the movie industry, the actress who is also known as Jenifa said you must be well talented, humble and focused.
“First, you have to be sure you have the talent. You have it in you. There’s something different in you. You can’t force talent or do something cause someone else is doing it. You can learn how to act for sure, but you must be willing to learn. Then stay focused. You must be ready to have patience and endurance. You have to work hard. Do not be distracted. You have to be well branded. Listen to correction. You have to grow organically. I did Screen Divas with Ebony Life some years ago, now I am directing a movie with same Ebony Life. Its called organic growth. Then, you have to be very respectful.”
Funke Akindele added her source of inspiration which is not regular, “I draw inspirations from things happening around me. I could get an idea and when I am in the bathroom taking a shower I develop it. Later on maybe during a massage, I could give the concept a deeper thought.”
