    Tunde Kelani’s next film is something of a departure for him and his star, Funke Akindele. News of their collaboration on ‘Maami’ has sent ripples through the industry, with many pointing out to the filmmaker the fact that he doesn’t work with ‘stars’, he creates them. It has also been suggested that Akindele, the highly successful star of ‘Jenifa’, doesn’t need the leg-up. But the cinematographer and the actress say their collaboration is long overdue. Kelani says, “I’ve known Funke Akindele for a number of years and I’ve followed her progress all along. She has incredible range and as far as I’m concerned, none of those has been used.”

    TK jam Funky baby. Now, that is something to look forward to. I wonder why the article is making it look like they are both working together for the first time. Funky has worked in atleast two of TK's productions." Abeni" and "The White Handkerchief" (hope i got that one right) come to mind, even though the roles were small ones.
