‘Taking up the character of Lefty was quite challenging’, Funke Akindele-Bello says
Nollywood actress, producer and director, Funke Akindele-Bello is still in awe over the tremendous reviews and accolades that she and her team have received over the highest-grossing Nollywood film of all times, ‘Omo Ghetto (The Saga).
Taking to her Instagram to share her gratitude and how her character ‘Lefty’ came to life, she wrote:
Taking up the character of #Lefty in #omoghettothesaga was quite challenging and it took a whole lot of rigorous training, emotions and substitution in truthfully interpreting the character.
I literarily lived, breathed and ate the character from the point I began to write, till the principal photography of the movie was done. I trained myself to perfectly do these things in order to deliver flawless performance.
However, I’m grateful for the good reviews I’ve gotten so far concerning the delivery of LEFTY.
The movie follows the life of Lefty (Funke Akindele-Bello) and her friends, Chummy Choko (Chioma Akpotha), Busty (Eniola Badmus), Nikky (Bimbo Thomas) in Askamaya Ghetto.
