New reports have it that Yoruba actress and movie producer, Funke Akindele may have lied about her age after conflicting figures emerge.
Actress Funke Akindele is now enmeshed in an age controversy after conflicting claims emerged about her real age.
 
The producer of TV sitcom - 'Jenifa Dairy' which is currently airing on national TV celebrated her birthday on the 24th of August with her boyfriend and alleged husband, JJC Skillz in London, United Kingdom.

While the actress claimed that she is age 39, a conflicting claim on her Wikipedia said that she is now 40 years old. According to the public online biography, the actress was born Akindele Olufunke Ayotunde on August 24, 1976 in Ikorodu, Lagos State, Nigeria.
 

In another twist, a Nollywood producer who does not want to be named has insisted that the actress is about 44 year old according to Express NG.

“As at when she starred in I Need To Know, Funke’s age was already more than the teenage character which she portrayed. She is not 39 or 40 as she claims, she is 44 years old. I have been around for quite a while to know this for sure. Age falsification and reduction is a trend in Nollywood and indeed every sector of the society, this is not the first time it is coming up,”revealed the filmmaker.

Explaining why movie personalities false their ages, a brand expert, Ikechukwu Orji said that corporate organizations are more disposed to associating with celebrities who are younger due to their youth segment appeal.
 
"In the corporate sector, we prefer to work more with celebrities with youth appeal and age plays a factor in this," Orji said.
