Funke Akindele, who is popularly known for Jenifa’s Diary, has launched ‘Jenifa Spells’, an educative spelling app. According to Akindele, ‘Jenifa Spells is built around the Jenifa character.
The 42-year-old attributed the creation of the game to the immense support from her husband, Abdulrasheed Bello aka JJC Skillz.
She said, “I (Jenifa) am out with a game now. We are launching the ‘Jenifa Spells’ which teaches people how to spell. It is an educational game that was developed by our team.”
In 2008, the director and producer wrote and co-produced a comedy-drama, with the major character being ‘Jenifa’.
After the huge acceptance of the film, which saw Akindele-Bello winning the Best Actress in a Leading Role at the Africa Movie Academy Awards, the leading actress made a sequel to the film, ‘Return of Jenifa’ in 2011.
Jenifa is available for download (43mb) on the playstore and has so far been downloaded more than 1,000 times.
