Have you had any embarrassing moment from your female fans?
So many, pleasedon’t even go there. So far God has been delivering me and I still pray for hiscontinuous deliverance.
Could you be more specific?
Some ladies call to have a date with you. Some others offer me money just to sleep with them;they make passes at me. Acts like these are embarrassing tome. The point is this, how many fine girls are yougoing to date? You just stick to the one you loveand life would be easier and more enjoyable.Women chase me because I am an actor andif they don’t do that, it simply means that I amnot yet an actor. In fact, being chased is not the issue, what matters is that whenever I perceive that I am about to be chased, I run.”

It was the woman and she said, ‘Abebelube’ (Yoruba word for a more-than-smart person) and laughed. I was hurt! But I just grinned and said ‘thank you ma.’The normal Funke Akindele would have reacted but I just reminded myself of the status. But I am human!

I could not say anything. This was an old woman, even older than my mom. As if the slap was not enough, she started shouting at me ‘You are silly. You are mad. You are crazy’ I looked left and right to be sure it wasn’t a set up. I moved back a little because I could not understand what was happening.Two million and one things were running through my mind at the same time. She just kept on ranting: ‘How can you treat Chioma Chukwuka like that? Who taught you that as element of marriage?’ Iwas speechless. Then I understood and I was like, ‘oh my Godthis is all because of a film’. By the time she was yelling again, some okada riders packedandasked what happened.On hearing the woman mention Chioma Chukwuka, they knew it was about a film andstarted laughing. Today, that woman is one of my biggest fan. She forced me to lunch that day and when I refused she just got into my car and threw her car keys to her grand daughterand said, ‘anywhere you are going, you will go but we must go for lunch together’.We went for lunch that day and today, we arevery close.
