Nigerian actor and politician Funke Akindele has penned an emotional tribute to her mother, Dr. Adebanjo-Akindele, who died on February 7, 2023.

Since her mother’s death, Funke, who is the deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, has not made any official statements but took to her Instagram page to pay tribute on Friday, February 10, 2023.


Funke made a lengthy post and posted a video documenting her mother’s life.

“Mom, you raised me to be very hardworking, dedicated, and selfless. You were a blessing to not just your children but to everyone around you. You always had a positive impact on the lives of anyone that came across you. You taught us the way of the Lord: how to pray, how to serve God, and how to commit all things to him. We have the fear of God in our hearts because of how you nurtured us to be compassionate in everything we do. You didn’t stop at teaching us alone; you further extended this same legacy to your grandchildren by teaching them how to pray too at a very young age,’’ the politician said.

“Mom, you were very selfless and did everything humanly possible to give us the best life. I want to thank you, mom, for raising us well despite the ups and downs. Yes, it hurts, but I’m happy that your legacy lives on with us—your children and grandchildren as well—and that you’re in a better place.

“I’m definitely going to miss you, mommy. And I promise I’d never give up, just like you always advised. I’ll make sure I give my best to anything I do, and victory will be my portion in Jesus’ name. I will make you proud, mom,’’ she concluded.

Funke Akindele is one of the biggest names in the Nigerian film industry but has focused her attention recently on winning the 2023 election as deputy governor of Lagos State.
