We all knew Jenifa had it in her, and now thanks to Chinaza Onuzo who wrote and directed Who’s The Boss, we have definitive evidence that Jenifa is the Boss we might not want, but we need.
If perhaps you live under a rock, Jenifa is a titular TV show character created and played by Funke Akindele-Bello. In Who’s The Boss, Funke Akindele-Bello is best described as Jenifa who studied abroad and has a foreign passport.
It is a stroke of genius to play Funke Akindele-Bello so true to type but yet so different. She is Jenifa and she isn’t Jenifa and both ideas work brilliantly. In Who’s The Boss, Funke Akindele-Bello plays Hauwa Sowole a high achieving Advertising Executive, who is torn between passing the baton to a younger colleague and staying relevant. As a matter of fact, Inkblot Productions and Accelerate Studios have a home run on their hands.
Funke Akindele-Bello’s Hauwa is stern in all the right ways and in every single scene, she turns up the heat brilliantly and leaves the earth scorched in her wake. In fact, in one particularly stinging scene, the audience let out audible gasps as Funke’s Hauwa threw all her might into crushing her errant protégé. Look, you have not seen a Funke Akindele-Bello as you will in this film, fasten your seat belt!
Be sure to check out the mighty Funke Akindele-Bello alongside Blossom Chukwujekwu, Sharon Ooja, Segun Arinze, Ini Dima-Okojie, Beverly Osu, Tayo Faniran & Bolly Lomo, as Who’s The Boss opens in Cinemas all over West Africa from February 28, 2020.
