Before now, Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele was number 1 and most featured face that marketers go for before agreeing on marketing the film for a producer.
Funke does not really need to play a lead role, as long as her face is visible on the jacket of the flick; ultimately, the movie will go places. She has carved that niche for herself and displaced many of her contemporaries. She became highest paid actress when she produced her multiple award winning movie titled, Jenifa which as today earned her fame and wealth. Shortly after the movie was released, Funke became a brand to reckon with not only in the movie industry but in all walks of life. She became a brand ambassador to several multinational companies in Nigeria including Vita-foam, Unilever, Jobberman.com, Qlichy.com, Lagos Inland Revenue Service and many more.
