Big Brother Naija ‘Lockdown’ housemate, Vee Iye has penned a deep appreciation post to Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele. The reality star, who stars in Funke Akindele’s new movie, She Must Be Obeyed, appreciated the actress for giving her the opportunity.
Vee Iye shared a screenshot of the DM she sent to the Box Office King years back, pleading with her to offer her a role in any of her movies. Surprisingly, Funke replied her and promised to give her a role in one of her movies.
Keeping to her promise, Funke cast her in her new movie, She Must Be Obeyed, which is exclusively on Prime Video and stars other actors like Mike Ezurounye, Nancy Isime, and others.
Appreciating her, she added that Funke helped her unlock a level of confidence she never knew she had. “Thank you for giving me a chance @funkeakindele you helped me unlock a level of confidence I never knew I had. I love you, Aunty”.
Many people who saw the movie commented on how well Vee Iye performed in it. One Model Diva wrote, “And she delivered,” while Princess Eko advised people to “always shoot their shot when it comes to their goals.”
Thelma Cute added, “I just saw it and Vee’s acting was so good,” while Sandy Preneur added, “Always shoot your shot.
That gut feeling is usually right,” and Model Dera concluded, “And she delivered.” Vee Iye
