If I arrest this artist now, you’ll say I’m using celebrity power – Funke Akindele


Multiple award-winning actress and producer, Funke Akindele, has taken to social media to react after a Nigerian ‘artist’ made a hilarious-looking artwork of her.

The artist identified as Bodataiye Oniyakuya, who is popularly known for making caricature-like drawing of celebrities, public figure and politicians including Governor Sanwo-Olu, the executive governor of Lagos State, decided to make Funke Akindele his muse this time.

However, the actress seemingly didn’t like the drawing and took to her Instagram page to express her displeasure at the artist. She said if she gets him arrested now, people will say she is abusing her celebrity privilege.

She wrote, 
When I call for the arrest of this guy @bodataiye_oniyakuya Ya’ll will start saying I’m using celebrity power. Hmmmmm so you think this is right? @bodataiye_oniyakuya if I catch you, you go sweat inside winter.”


Remember, it was this same artist that was invited to the office of the Lagos State Government in 2021 after he made a funny drawing of Governor Sanwo Olu.
