She took the whole thing too far by doing a part 2, in my own opinion. A part 3 is just totally:shock to me!!

Well, if she gets invited to compere at events, and she feels like it, why not? Me I don't have a problem with that.

She calls JENIFA 3= The return of Jenifa. ;)

Somehow, I am not very excited about it (at least not yet) as I am really wondering what would be different and why? What is the need for it? I am thinking the whole story might just completely lose the plot after that part 2..... but I guess we will have to wait to see it.

She is a go-getter, we can only wish her the best!

Hope she goes far!

One thing I sure know about the Naija viewers is that this type of hype wanes....Remember a certain duo called Aki & Pawpaw?
lol @ Aki and Pawpaw. I wonder where they are sef? :609:


This "Return of Jenifa" thing will sell though. But whether people will love/enjoy it is another thing entirely.........

I don't care about the compere thing. Jenifa is a funny character. Funke is hot. let her enjoy her fame. But what are you going to do in Part 3? Jenifa already had HIV no be so? So what next? Miraculous healing? Once you start to overmilk a successful franchise, it loses its attraction. For example, the first matrix movie was a blockbuster. By the time it got to part 3, we were all like worraheck??????

Leave the stage when the ovation is loudest before people get tired of you - that is the smart thing to do. If Jenifa 3 bombs (story and acting wise), all the good things said about part1 will be forgotten. She has to tread lightly o. Too much icecream leads to jedijedi!!

Not that I am for or against o, but here is what she says:

By: Funke Akindele

The story of Jenifa is that of a village girl who wanted to be a big girl. She wanted to be a force to reckon with by force. She wanted to be noticed and she was noticed at the end of the day but on the negative side. She was infected with HIV and that’s why I want to do the return of Jenifa. There are unresolved conflicts that will be explored in the sequel, The return of Jenifa. For instance, what happened to the lady that arranged the girls for parties The sequel will reveal what happened to her and there are many other characters in there that we need to know what happened to them.

Then, I want to go deeper into the HIV theme, parental negligence, cultism. I want to explore the social vices on our campuses and that’s why we are having the return of Jenifa
.
I was moved to do Jenifa because I wanted to do something near real. I’d never seen anything like that before and of course I’m a very wild thinker. Oh and there is nothing in my background that helped me play Jenifa character as convincingly as I did. I’m just very funny naturally, at least that’s what people say. I say things that linger in people’s memory. What I did was to go and understudy how a local girl will pronounce ‘big girl’. I had to travel down to Ibadan, Oshogbo, Ilorin, sit in bukas and listen to all those local girls talk. I studied the way they painted their faces, their attitudes and their brand of self-confidence. Some of the slangs are Sulia kan, Ayetoro kan, then bigs girl, mo don jazzy e. The movie has really changed my life. It’s a big shoe that I really have to fit into. While I was coming here I was still thinking about how to do something better.
No I’m not doing anything on Funke Akindele for now but we are doing some thing on Jenifa. We are branding Jenifa, we are coming out with Jenifa wigs, weavon, accessories and we are coming out with bigs boy chain, bigs boys shirts, clothing lines. There will be Jenifa face caps, handbags, purses. We are building a brand around Jenifa.

I believe in giving people the benefit of a doubt. I am looking forward to "The return of Jenifa"....... By God's grace, we will all be here. Surely, I will be here with my thoughts, good or bad! God keep us all! ;)

Funke is no Akin and Pawpaw. Those boys were stereotyped to one role. Funke acts different roles and plays them well. Besides she's been around for a while now and she actually breathed on YMG with her first production when it looked as if we were only stuck with one story line. Funke is dynamic and is more talented than Aki and pawpaw. If Genevieve, Jim, Omotola etc can maintain their fame after coming out with movies upon movies Funke should have no qualms. She has the audience and fans -both faithful fans and the fair-weathered fans. One thing I have realized about Funke is that you don't underestimate her, she might shock you.
