Nigerian filmmaker Funke Akindele has expressed her concerns about the wave of female influencers who call themselves “baddies” without any substance of value or intellectual capacity.

While speaking on Arise TV, the award-winning actress said it is not good enough to believe, consume, envy, or imitate the celebrity lifestyles of some of the influencers online, as they may be unreal most of the time.


Also, Funke Akindele said she enjoys watching beautiful content on fashion from individuals of intellectual value.

“I enjoy watching beautiful content, but you have to watch what you churn out.

“You need to focus on your brand, what you are selling, and what you want people to learn from you.

“If you are an actor, a self-made person, and you are big up there, what are you churning out for the up-and-coming ones?

Funke Akindele Expresses Concern

“You must influence their lives positively with the content you churn out, and for those of you who watch content, what are you watching? To be entertained or to learn?

“You don’t come there as a troll. No, you don’t come in there to impress people.

“Because A is carrying designer bags and showing you on video, how sure are you that she is not borrowing the bag and that she is rich? Don’t believe everything on social media.


“Stay positive. Churn out what will promote you, and that will push you out there positively.
