Funke Akindele

There is no doubt that star actress, Funke Akindele Oloyede has come a long way since she started acting professionally in 1987. In recent times, she has racked up an impressive list of achievements, which has seen her profile rise meteorically. Today, her appeal goes well beyond the film industry, to wider society. Indeed she has become a veritable brand.

In September 2011, her eagerly anticipated movie, The Return of Jenifa, was released. The movie saw her reprising her role as the bumbling, irrepressible wannabe, Jenifa. The movie featured actors such as Ireti Osayemi Bakare, Eniola Badmus, Rukky Sanda, Mercy Aigbe, and Yinka Quadri. The movie also had star turns by celebrities such as Banky W, Wizkid, Naeto C, and Sasha.

Expectations were high as The Return of Jenifa was released at cinemas in Nigeria. If Funke Akindele Oloyede had been worried about the performance of the movie at the box office, she need not have been. The movie played to packed cinema halls, and went on to become the highest grossing Nigerian movie to date. Indeed the movie received the Highest Box Office award at the Zuma Film Festival, which was held in May.

The remarkable success of The Return of Jenifa, further solidified the status of Funke Akindele Oloyede as a veritable star. Without a doubt, she had become a star that no one could ignore. Following the success of The Return of Jenifa, awards and requests for public appearances began pouring in for the actress.

In May 2012, she won the Best Actress award at the Zuma Film Festival for her role in the Tunde Kelani film, MAAMi. In June 2012, she won the Best Actress in an Indigenous Movie award at the Nollywood Movies Awards. Also in June 2012, she won the Best Actress in a Leading Role award at the Yoruba Movie Academy Awards. In July 2012, she won the Best Crossover Actress award at the Global Leadership Award for Excellence.

On the personal front, she got married to her heartthrob, Kehinde Almaroof Oloyede on May 26, at an elaborate ceremony which was graced by top Nollywood stars such as Desmond Elliot, Genevieve Nnaji, Ini Edo, and Chioma Akpotha.

There were fears in some quarters that she would not be able to handle the pressure that would come with her increased public profile. However, she has risen to the challenge, handling her public appearances with increasing grace and commendable style. She was one of the Olympic torchbearers at the Olympic Torch Relay, which took place in Coventry on July 1, and she will be co-hosting the Nigeria Entertainment Awards in New York, on September 2.

Just like her character, Jenifa, Funke Akindele Oloyede is flying on the fast track.

Rita Dominic

The last 12 months have been very good for Rita Dominic. In those 12 months, she has booked her place solidly as one of the best Nigerian actresses – of all time. During this time, she has been part of several top quality productions, and she has played a diverse array of characters, which has deepened her oeuvre considerably. Her career moves have been faultless, and her choice of roles have been inspired.

In July 2011, Rita Dominic left Nigeria for Kenya to star in the film, Shattered. In Shattered, she played Keziah Njema – a woman whose traumatic childhood becomes a precursor to a life of turmoil, depression, and self destruction. At the time, a few eyebrows were raised about her decision to star in the Kenyan production, but time would show that this was one of the best decisions of her life.

After completing Shattered in August 2011, Rita Dominic returned to Nigeria, and in October 2011, she starred in The Meeting – a romantic drama, which she produced with her manager and business partner, Mildred Okwo. In The Meeting, she plays Clara Ikemba – a cantankerous super secretary working in a government office in Abuja.

Rita Dominic started 2012 by starring in Streets of Calabar – a comedy thriller written and produced by former CNN and BBC reporter, Charles Aniagolu. She starred in the movie alongside acts like Anthony Ofoegbu, Wale Ojo, Keppy Ekpenyong Bassey, and Maynard Eziashi.

After completing Streets of Calabar she went on the set Lions of ’76 – a film centred around the events of the military coup, which took place in Nigeria in 1976. The film, which is one of the most important films of 2012, is being directed by the award winning director, Izu Ojukwu, and it is being shot on celluloid.

In May 2012, Rita Dominic took a break from the set of Lions of ’76 to attend the African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) in Lagos. She had been nominated for the prestigious AMAA award for Best Actress in a Leading Role. She was up against some of the best actresses in Africa, some of which were – Uche Jombo, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Ama K Abebrese, and Millicent Makheido. In a stunning victory, she clinched the award for her role in Shattered – the movie which she did in Kenya in 2011. This victory sealed her position as one of the best Nigerian actresses of all time.

However, there was little time to celebrate her victory at AMAA, as she soon returned to the set of Lions of ’76 in Ibadan. Without a doubt, Lions of ’76 has been one of the most rigorous and demanding movies of Rita Dominic’s career. She has been on set for 5 months now, alongside Ramsey Nouah, and Chidi Mokeme, under the watchful Izu Ojukwu – one of the most exacting directors in Nigeria. Lions of ’76 is nearing a wrap, and Rita should soon be able to get a well deserved rest.

All in all, the past 12 months have been some of the best of Rita Dominic’s career – if not the best. The choice of films, which she has featured in have been very good for her career. The AMAA award was the icing on the cake, and at this point, any history of the Nigerian film industry would be incomplete without a mention of Rita Uchenna Nkem Dominic.

RITA HANDS DOWN...DUH!!!
THE BOSS | 8/4/2012 9:09:51 PM |
Rita is a better actress..there's no competition here!
She has played multiple roles under the sun and nailed them successfully. Some of the roles Rita nailed include: maid, village girl, city/sassy babe, soldier, b*t*hy roles, evil doer, fraudster and so on. Funke on the other hand plays stereotypical roles for the most part. MOST of her roles (including in Sherikoko, Omo Ghetto, White Hunters, etc) are the same >>> loud, pidgin speaking, uncultured and illiterate aggressive roles. Funke is undoubtedly is a good actress, but she needs to break away from these typecast roles and show us her full potential!
Admirations
D.Romeo Suah | 6/27/2013 4:19:12 PM |
i don't no, .bt i see no point.cause Rita is a real figure in the acting field.she the kind that can match any role,

What a question! U pple know in ur mind dat Rita wil win. U just want 2 find trouble. Funke is gud 2 (though i don't lyk her). But Rita is beta by faaarrr!!! If u pple want da though one. Then, post da comparism of Omosexy & Genny.
Genny Rules
THE BOSS | 8/5/2012 9:54:19 AM |
Haha that's is not a fair comparison either because Genevieve beats Omotola in every category each & every time (from fame, wealth, recognition, endorsements, wealth/income/assets, looks and so on). Genevieve is the highest paid actress in Africa and the most famous celebrity in Africa. She also the 1st West African star to clinch a major deal (N10million deal with Lux). Her endorsements are also the highest in Nollywood, Ghallywood and so on put together... so where do you start to compare these two? Lol. Omotola is an outstanding actress, but comparing their accomplishment is not fair to Omo. Now watch Omotola's worshipers will start convulsing & cursing like wild untrained animals b/c they despise the truth. Anyone who wants to rant has my permission to do so ;) -THE BOSS-

Which emotional role funke plays.You'll say comedy alone like jenifa and her yeye movies while that her yoruba movies Oh Lord her tears are so fake.Funke though has come along way and just got a big break through jenifa,she's yet to proof critics wrong when it comes to versatility.Funke can only win anyone in Yoruba but Rita is her superior when it comes to English.Please compare Funke to uche jumbo,rita is a killer in the game.

RITA DOMINIC PLS NO FIGHTING
Boladale | 8/4/2012 2:21:24 PM
First of all i'll like to start with the both are good very good actresses but if we want to leave sentiments apart rita here takes the cake.First the only movie you people use in comparing Funke to any other actress is TROJ,she is always doing comedy roles and when i finally watched funke in escort service OMG she sucked so bad in that role i was surprised,she was stiff,no connection at all but in the movie MAAMI she killed her role which is yoruba.Then comes Rita dominic who has experience in roles with movies like shattered,reloaded,girls cot and all not to mention her challenging role which am 100%sure she murdered in the trailer THE MEETING,rita is the producer of the movie but laid back and took a challenging part rather than taking the lead because you are the producer? that is what we call an actress.Do i also talk about Rita's role in LIONS OF 76? another role entirely.Funke might have started in nollywood before Rita but Rita has a better filmography than her let's just say experience.How come Funke collects award for her roles in jenifa alone and not any other role does that mean when there is no longer jenifer she's gone?because she stated she want to make another jeifa movie just like tyler perry's madea or twilight.I am not saying she shouldnt but Kristen stewart of Twilight shone on other roles like snow white.How come no body notcies any other role Fuke plays apart from jenifa.I am a yoruba woman except someone wants to include tribalism in this Rita is 10times better in my own opinion.I'll also appreciate if the press stop this comparison so as not to start what you people started during omotola and genevieve's time which up till today it's still going on pls stop dividing fans.

Onome-Dublin Ireland | 8/5/2012 8:01:22 AM |
Rita is the bomb, when it comes to acting prowess. There is no certainly basis for comparism.Funke is typecaste.She has been steorotyped.This is not good for an actress.

Every good actress should be varsartile. Recollect that, Funke started acting in english not yoruba.She was a crosseed over actress.She couldn't face the chanllenge and competitions in the english genre hence she shoved.

From heartfeit opinion, l think this is a slap on the face of Rita. and l dear say without any fear or favour that Rita is highly valued and emulated than Funke Akindele
Rita and Funke
OLAYINKA. | 8/5/2012 8:26:10 AM
Rita is a very good actress but Funke is much better. Let put aside sentiment,tribalism and the film Jenifa in which some people are using as yardstick to measure her. Funke is an overall pure rare gem stone.For doubters, if you are less busy,check some of her films she produced before Jenifa i.e Risikat, Ekuro, Korede,Ija ola,Etanu, Apaadi,Aye olomokan,Taiwo taiwo, Eda, Iya mi,Aye awa Obirin and Aye awa Okunrin e.t.c . there are some that i can not recollect, these films are well subtitled.Funke acted different roles ranging from a professional boxer, dancer, blind and motivational lady,widow, lover and so on. Let try and see beyond our nose and give honour to whom is due.

sentiments aside, both actress are good, in fact right now both of them are making the so called NOLLYWOOD, and i dont think you guys need to compare them cos they are of different genre: Funke acts Yoruba and Rita Acts Igbo and english Film . this comparison is more less like comparing two footballers of different leagues just like comparing sum1 who plays for London league to the spanish Laliga player. we all know quite well that this two players can never play against each other, so stop comparing them and all the same do you guys know that these Duos are close pals? but i still prefer Funke to Rita

to be frank, its difficult cos i like both but i think funke is better 4 some reasons. funke has been acting longer than rita since d soap opera of "i need to know".some people call funke a local actress, Gosh, its a lie she can act both english and yoruba (mind u she is a Barrister). She is also a producer and a writer.

What is being local in acting , i think most important thing is to be able to deliver and interpret role perfectly in any any language of choice , I wonder why Nigerians like to be fake and don't appreciate their own effort . acting is not ability to twist tongue in American accent or speak queen English , The expression , the body language and the prowess say it all .Back to the topic Rita has made her mark in acting world and she has earn a lot respect and reputations . Funke is the bomb which ever language she has chosen to act, she has gotten so many talents, Good luck to all of them ALL .

Engr.Bolaji | 8/16/2012 6:04:32 AM
well both of them are good in their profession.In Nollywood 2de de cannot play wt YORUBA movies bcos its fetch them money compare 2 other languages. Meaning if u call urself an actor or actress without knowledge of English and YOR Lang u will find it difficult d likes of Ransom Noah ,Desmond Elliot plenty actors and actresses are marking it bcos of diversity in lang.Funke fits in YOR./Eng movies,While Rita fits in IGBO./eng.Everybody kws dt YOR. MOVIES are selling in mkt compare 2 IGBO movies . 4rm there Mrs Khadijat Funke Oloyede will get more hands than Rita Dominic.

To me, they are both gud in acting, but one is so very real in interpreting her role and dat person is Funke. she is not the type dat pretend while acting, she put her very best into each role and achieve result. on the other hand Rita is such a gud acress too.... but i give it to Funke 'cos she rocks!!!

movies is for entertain and acting is faking,like acting different character,funke can act every role giving to her wether serious or joke,why did nigeria vote mercy the best? Becuse she act every role including joke movie.Funke akindele can act both joke and serious movies,how many joke movies has Rita acted?her tears can't even move any body,Funke even yoruba movies,how many igbo has rita acted?.So funke is the BEST.
