“I cried on set, I was so excited” – Actress Toyo baby emotional as she finally reunites with Funke Akindele on new movie set [Video]

 Nigerian actress, Juliana Olayode has reacted after reuniting with her colleague and mentor, Funke Akindele on her new movie project.

Juliana was announced as part of the cast of Funke’s upcoming film, A Tribe Called Judah, alongside Ebele Okaro, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Timini Egbuson, and others.

On Monday, the actress uploaded a trailer for the film on her Instagram account, and fans flocked to the comments section to express their delight at the actress reuniting with the filmmaker six years after her dramatic exit from Funke’s hit series Jenifa’s Dairy.

The rift between the two actresses started in 2017 after Juliana was dropped from the series due to monetary issues.

However, the 27-year-old claimed in a lengthy Instagram apology post in May 2023 that her lack of understanding of the movie business caused her to hurt Funke whom she described as a miracle God used to bring her to fame.


Juliana posted a video of herself on Instagram on Tuesday, showing off her dance moves, while expressing her joy at her return to Funke’s Scene One TV family.

Juliana captioned the post to thank Funke for giving her the chance to portray Hilda on A Tribe Called Judah.

She also said that she was so excited to be working with Funke that she ended up crying on set.

She wrote; “We are COMING!!! A Tribe Called Judah is coming to the cinema on the 15th of December mark your calendars.

“Thank you for all the excitement and messages since I posted the video introducing the characters of A Tribe Called Judah yesterday. Posting this reel so y’all can see that I am as excited as you are. I was so excited I cried on set. Thank you so much mama @funkejenifaakindele for the opportunity to play Hilda. You are simply the BEST.”
