Nollywood actress and producer, Funke Akindele has shared a story of how she started acting and the big role colleague actress, Kate Henshaw, played in making her succeed.
In a long post shared to Instagram, Funke noted Kete Henshaw was the first actress she met on set when she had no clue of what to do.
According to her, Kate held her hands and said to her that no matter what she could do it, and after everything, she ensured she was fed in her hunger.
Funke posted a long piece to celebrate the birthday of Kate Henshaw which is today, 19th July 2019.
It’s rare to find ladies who are successful in their field of work to support and promote others to succeed like themselves that is why Funke Akindele is thus grateful.

I’m sure @k8henshaw can’t remember the story I’m about to tell…… In 1997 when i started my acting career i met @k8henshaw on the set of Naked Wire. That was my first experience before the camera so i was so nervous. I played the role of a waitress who was asked by the lead actor to tell the lead actress (Kate Henshaw) that he loved her. Immediately the director called ACTION,i started shaking because i was so nervous. Kate held my hands and told me that i could do it.
After the scene, i was so hungry but wasn’t given food as (waka pass concern nau 😆😆) Kate saw me waiting and she went to tell them to give me food.
This woman here is so wonderful and selfless. I can go on and on about this NO NONSENSE WOMAN, VERY ORGANISED WOMAN. God bless you more sis, may you live longer in good health and wealth. HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATE THE GREAT
LOVE YOU Sis mi😗😗😗😗
