Funke Akindele, a Nollywood actress and filmmaker, has declared she does not consider her two failed marriages “failures.”
In an interview with Wazobia FM in Lagos, Akindele revealed that her mother taught her that failure is necessary for success.
The actress stated that her top objective is to live a meaningful life and provide for her children and siblings.
“If you ask me now, can you tell me one failure? I don’t consider it a failure. In my personal life, particularly my marriage, I simply take things as they come. My mental health is essential. My career is vital, dear.
“I need to make an impression. I need to empower a lot of individuals. I have to encourage the young folks out there. I need to be strong for my children and siblings. Why do I live? I have a mission, therefore I keep my head up. Yes, I weep and break down, but when I do, I just look in the mirror and say, ‘keep moving,’” she said
