A Nigerian actor, Uche Maduagwu has attributed Naira Marley's success to Funke Akindele.
Naira Marley and Funke Akindele
Controversial Actor, Uche Maduagwu has revealed that prayer from Funke Akindele helped Nigerian musician, Naira Marley to become successful.
He made the claim in his latest post.
According to him, Naira Marley would have been selling tomatoes under a bridge at Oshodi if not for Funke Akindele.
He explained that it took the intervention of Funke’s Akindele to get him on his feet after she prayed for him. The Nollywood actor explained that Funke is not only an actress but a woman who is spiritually endowed in Christianity.
He lamented the fact that there are bitterness and jealousy in the industry due to the success of some artists. Uche said that Naira Marley has been considered the spiritual baba and in the industry and his colleagues envy him due to his massive fanbase across Africa.
His post read:
“SO MANY SINGERS ARE JEALOUS THAT NAIRA MARLEY IS FELA PERSONIFIED, IF NOT FOR FUNKE JENIFA AKINDELE’S PRAYERS, NAIRAMARLEY WOULD HAVE BEEN SELLING TOMATO UNDER THE BRIDGE OF OSHODI.
FUNKE JENIFA AKINDELE IS NOT JUST A COLLEAGUE IN NOLLYWOOD, WHEN IT COMES TO PRAYERS, SHE IS VERY STRONG.
HONESTLY, THE ENVY AND JEALOUSY IN THE NIGERIAN MUSIC INDUSTRY IS TOO MUCH, JUST BECAUSE MARLIANS ALL OVER AFRICA TREAT NAIRA MARLEY AS THE SPIRITUAL BABA FELA AND DANCE TO HIS LEGENDARY SONGS, THERE IS SO MUCH BITTERNESS IN THE INDUSTRY, HONESTLY, IF NOT FOR THE PRAYERS OF THIS NOLLYWOOD LEGEND, DO YOU THINK NAIRA MARLEY WILL STILL BE DOING MUSIC?”
