Actress, Producer, and Philanthropist, Funke Akindele is celebrated not only for her talent and acting skills but also for being a role model to young people. Her vibrant and outgoing character does not make it seem like she is a person of quotes, but her quotes mostly shared via her Instagram page shows that Funke Akindele is not just a Celebrity but an Icon.
Her quotes are often directed towards inspiring her followers, especially the youth, encouraging people to be their best selves and take action. One of her many quotes that have become a mantra for me is “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream”, this one right here is so profound (it’s a different kind of DEEP!), telling us that it is never too late, no matter how late it is. Funke Akindele’s quotes are not just quotes, in that, she practices what she says. Day after day, she gives us a reason to appreciate her efforts. Though this might not generate much attention, she is one of the few icons that are deserving of the word “Celebrity”.
Her quotes mainly focused on a person’s growth, which is one of the best motivations for an individual. From urging us to make use of the little resources to get what we want, to telling us the importance of our choices, that we can make our story a bestseller, and even pushing us to be intentional with our time; It is evident that Funke Akindele’s act of giving back to the society extends beyond movies and comedy. She also gives back through her words, and for me (I might be biased), no one delivers more timely, profound, and brilliant words of Wisdom like Funke.
