Funke Akindele, an award-winning actress and producer, has reacted when a Nigerian ‘artist’ created a funny-looking artwork of her.
Bodataiye Oniyakuya, a Nigerian artist known for caricature-like drawings of celebrities and politicians, including Governor Sanwo-olu of Lagos State, chose Funke Akindele as his muse this time.
The actress, on the other hand, didn’t seem to like the artwork and took to Instagram to express her discontent with the artist.
People will accuse her of oppressing him with her star power if she gets him imprisoned now, she warned.
She wrote, “🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
When I call for the arrest of this guy @bodataiye_oniyakuya Ya’ll will start saying I’m using celebrity power. Hmmmmm so you think this is right? @bodataiye_oniyakuya if I catch you, you go sweat inside winter.”
It was this same artist that was invited to the office of the Lagos State Government in 2021 after he made a funny drawing of Governor Sanwo Olu.
