Funke Akindele Debut The Big Friday Show
Followers of Show were treated to a huge surprise on Friday as Nollywood actress and Globacom ambassador, Funke Akindele, appeared on set as host of Episode 5 of the Big Friday of the show instead of the regular anchor and ace comedian, Basketmouth.
Basketmouth, also a Glo ambassador, has been the host of the show since its debut last month. However, Akindele featured as Special Guest Celebrity for the last show in a special programme organised by sponsors, Globacom and producers MTV Base. The talented actress popularly known as Jennifer, however, put up a fantastic performance with humour.
It was as usual a fun-filled package as the edition also had as studio guest, international disc jockey, DJ Humility, while Shun Don was the upcoming artiste for the week. Akindele thus becomes the third Nollywood act to star as the celebrity guest on the show this season after Uche Jombo and Desmond Elliot in the second and fourth editions respectively. Popular music act, Banky W, was the celebrity guest in the first episode while singer, Timaya also known as the Egberipapa 1 of Bayelsa was guest in the third episode.
