Funke conceded that it wasn’t so easy to manage marriage and acting especially when you were a mother.
She also acknowledged her son’s cooperation and understanding, which makes it possible to her to make the best of both worlds. “Combining marriage and motherhood with the demands of acting is not an easy task but with God on my side, I have been able to make the most of both worlds. My son understands that I have to be on movie locations sometimes and I always relate with him like he’s my father. Whenever I am going out, I usually say to him, ‘‘My father, I need to go to work.’’ And he would reply in his childlike innocence, ‘‘Mummy, you are going again?’’ Thereafter, he would urge me to give him whatever he needs before I take my leave. My husband has also been supportive on this journey and I am grateful to him,” she said to Sunday Scoop.
The Lagos State University Graduate was also moved to pray for long life following the sad demise of three top Yoruba actors in recent times with Moji Olaiya’s shocking passing the most recent. She said, “Recently, we lost Yoruba actors; Olumide Bakare and Adesina Adesanya popularly called Pastor Ajidara. We also lost Moji Olaiya, who was delivered of a baby about two months ago. For those who knew her, she was a reserved and easy-going person. For those of us that are still alive, we pray that we will live long.”
